Chi­nook School Di­vi­sion Sports Re­port

The Southwest Booster - - FRONT PAGE -

The week of Oc­to­ber 7 was “School Sport Week” in Saskatchewan. There were lots of events hap­pen­ing in our SWAC schools. What a won­der­ful week of cel­e­brat­ing what makes school sport so spe­cial!


SWAC sent 16 cross-coun­try ath­letes to the SHSAA provin­cial cham­pi­onship in Delisle. Bit­ter wind and cold tem­per­a­tures had us at neg­a­tive wind chill tem­per­a­tures all day. The ath­letes and coaches toughed out the weather con­di­tions and Chi­nook/swac should be very proud of them. Thanks to coaches Roberta Mcin­tryre, Joanne Fournier, Alexus We­ston and Stephen Boss for your lead­er­ship.

Our only top 10 fin­ish was Hil­lary La­celle, from SCCHS, in mid­get girls. She fin­ished sixth over­all.

The Swift Cur­rent Comp. also placed ninth out of 17 teams in the 4A School clas­si­fi­ca­tion.

Gull Lake fin­ished the reg­u­lar sea­son 6 man league with an away game to Han­ley on Oct. 12. Un­for­tu­nately, the Lions lost their last league game. Now they wait for the 6 man league play­off game, in Out­look, on Satur­day, Oct. 20.

On Oc­to­ber 12, Shau­navon hit the road for a game in Fort Qu’ap­pelle. The Shad­ows played in cold, wet con­di­tions and bat­tled to a 30-26 win. Also, on that night, Maple Creek hosted Lums­den, but could not come away with the win.

Shau­navon and Maple Creek play their last reg­u­lar sea­son 9 man league games on Fri­day, Oct. 19. Maple Creek trav­els to Fort Qu’ap­pelle and Shau­navon will host In­dian Head.


The Swift Cur­rent Comp. Colt an­the Herbert boys ended their ex­hi­bi­tion sea­son on a strong note, as they head into the SHSAA Re­gional play­offs. They won 3-1 over Vanier dur­ing a match up last week.

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 (Wey­burn and York­ton at­tend­ing) and Herbert boys are host­ing a 7 vs 7 re­gional (May­mont and Delisle at­tend­ing).

The first game is a 3A girl’s semi­fi­nal matchup on Fri­day, Oct. 19 at 3:30. The 1A boys will hit the field at 10:30 a.m. Satur­day, Oct. 20 for the semi­fi­nal. The 3A girl’s fi­nals is set for 12:30 and the 1A boy’s fi­nal is set for 3:30.

Herbert will take on Delisle in the 1A Boys semi-fi­nal at 10:30 a.m.

All games are played at Ir­win Field. Be­cause this is the first round of SHSAA play­offs, a gate is charged. If you are com­ing to watch, we hope you’ll show your ap­pre­ci­a­tion for high school sport by sup­port­ing the gate.


The SWAC se­nior girls’ volleyball league con­tin­ues after the Thanks­giv­ing week break in the sched­ule.
