Gor­don Wyant, Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion, has pro­claimed Oc­to­ber 7–13 as “School Sport Week” in Saskatchewan.

The SHSAA has made Wed­nes­day “Coaches and Of­fi­cials” recog­ni­tion day, Thurs­day “Multi-sport Par­tic­i­pa­tion” day and Fri­day is “School Team” recog­ni­tion day. We are en­cour­ag­ing all of our SWAC schools to cel­e­brate what is amaz­ing about school sport. A twit­ter/in­stra­gram/face­book scav­enger hunt will start on Mon­day… if you get ‘tagged’, play along and then pass it on to some­one else.

“The race is on…” Good Luck to our 16 SWAC cross coun­try ath­letes (midget, ju­nior and se­nior cat­e­gories) who are off to the SHSAA Provin­cial Cham­pi­onship in Delisle on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 13.

You had your choice of foot­ball games to at­tend on Thurs­day, Oct. 4. Gull Lake hosted Han­ley in 6 man ac­tion. Han­ley is a very strong team and came away with a 71-22 vic­tory over the Lions. Gull Lake will fin­ish the reg­u­lar sea­son league with an away game to Han­ley on Oct. 12.

It was Shau­navon host­ing Maple Creek “un­der the lights” last Thurs­day. In this lat­est bat­tle of the South­west, Maple Creek was the win­ner 33-6 over the Shad­ows. On Oc­to­ber 12, Shau­navon will hit the road for a game in Fort Qu’ap­pelle and Maple Creek will host Lums­den.

The last reg­u­lar sea­son game for the SCCHS Colts was on Thurs­day, Oct. 4, at home, against York­ton. They lost that game and fin­ished the reg­u­lar sea­son with a 4-2 record. The rest of the league played on Tues­day while SCCHS fi­nally got their bye. The most likely play­off sce­nario will have SCCHS in third and they will host sixth place on Satur­day, Oct. 13. Ten­ta­tive start time of 1 p.m. (but that needs to be con­firmed).

SCCHS Colt and Ar­den soc­cer leagues are wind­ing down. The SCCHS Ar­den soc­cer team’s game against Moose Jaw Vanier was post­poned due to bad road con­di­tions last week. They will make up this game on Tues­day, Oct. 9. Once the Ar­dens play, the league stand­ings can be fi­nal­ized for the play­offs.

The SCCHS Colts were able to get their game in against MJ Vanier on Wed­nes­day (amid a few snow drifts). The Colts won 10-0.

The Ar­dens and Colts should fol­low the same play­off rout. They won’t play un­til Satur­day in the semi fi­nal, if they win that game they are off to the league fi­nal on Oc­to­ber 16.

The Saskatchewan High School Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion has given the South­west two Re­gional soc­cer tour­na­ments (first step in provin­cial play downs). The Swift Cur­rent Ar­dens are host­ing an 11 vs 11 girls re­gional and Her­bert boys are host­ing a 7 vs 7 re­gional. Both tour­na­ments take place Oc­to­ber 19-20. Plans are un­der­way to merge the two tour­na­ments and play all games in Swift Cur­rent (mainly on the Satur­day).

The SWAC se­nior girls’ volleyball league con­tin­ues. Week three league night in Gull Lake was can­celled due to weather. Ha­zlet and Eastend will go to Gull Lake on Oct. 25 for the makeup games. The other host site, Pon­teix, was able to run their matches. It was Van­guard over Pon­teix 2-0 (25-17, 25-6) and 2-0 (25-20, 25-15).

There are no league games sched­uled for the week of Oct. 8. Next league ac­tion is on Oct. 16 in Eastend (Pon­teix and Gull Lake at­tend­ing) and Hodgeville (Ha­zlet is at­tend­ing).

Look­ing ahead to our ju­nior volleyball sec­tion/sub­sec­tion play­offs, the dates have been fi­nal­ized. Rolling Hills A boys will play­off in Her­bert on Oct. 23. Oc­to­ber 24 play­offs in­clude: Rolling Hills B boys at Ir­win and Rolling Hills A girls play­off at SCCHS. Oc­to­ber 25 play­offs are Rolling Hills B girls at Miller Col­lege (Pam­brun) and Cy­press Hills Boys in Fox Val­ley. Play­offs hap­pen­ing on Oct. 27 are Cy­press Hills girls in Cabri, White­mud girls in Eastend, White­mud boys in Fron­tier. More de­tails will fol­low closer to the event.
