The last win­ter ac­tiv­ity on the SHSAA cal­en­dar, bas­ket­ball, is wind­ing down. Prac­tices have be­gun for ju­nior and se­nior bad­minton and, hard to be­lieve, track and field can start in two weeks and golf 2019 in three weeks! Fol­low all the sports hap­pen­ings on “Swac­sports” Twit­ter, Face­book and In­sta­gram.

RE­GIONAL BAS­KET­BALL The Her­bert Lau­rel boys and Shau­navon Sil­hou­ettes at­tended SHSAA Re­gional Bas­ket­ball. The top 16 1A and 2A teams are seeded and then placed into one of four re­gional tour­na­ments around the prov­ince. Shau­navon Sil­hou­ettes (#12 seed) were at Saska­toon Chris­tian Academy and Her­bert Lau­rels (#9 seed) played their re­gional tour­na­ment in Lake Lenore. Only one team ad­vances to HOOPLA out of each Re­gional.

Shau­navon played #5 seed Asquith and lost 66-46. In the con­so­la­tion game, the Sil­hou­ettes lost 72-40 to Saska­toon Chris­tian.

Her­bert boys were beaten by #9 seed Mistawa­sis (89-79) in the first round. The boys dropped into the con­so­la­tion game, los­ing 76-68 to Maid­stone.

The SCCHS Ar­den and Colt teams started their run at the 5A pro­vin­cial cham­pi­onship at Re­gion­als on March 15/16. All 5A teams in the prov­ince (ex­clud­ing Saska­toon/regina) are at this tour­na­ment. The top two teams qual­ify for the SHSAA Pro­vin­cial Cham­pi­onship – HOOPLA. The Colts (#7 seed) were at the eight team Re­gional in York­ton and the Ar­dens (#2 seed) were at a six team Re­gional at PA Carl­ton.

The SC Colts lost to #2 seed Este­van (57-97) in their first game. In the con­so­la­tion game, the Colts fin­ished their sea­son with a strong 99-76 win over North Bat­tle­ford Comp.

The SCCHS Ar­dens earned a bye in the first round be­cause of their top two rank­ing. They played #3 Wey­burn in the semi-fi­nal. The Ar­dens cruised to a 67-47 vic­tory (and an au­to­matic berth at HOOPLA)! The Swift Cur­rent girls then­came up against #1 seed PA Carl­ton in the fi­nal. The short turn around be­tween games took its toll, and the Ar­dens lost 75-53. Con­grat­u­la­tions to the Ar­dens, who will be SWAC’S lone rep­re­sen­ta­tive at HOOPLA 2019. BAD­MINTON
