Junior Boys Basketball (written by Ron White)
The Junior Boys faced some very fierce Alberta competition this past weekend. They were “outsized” in every game but were still able to come away with winning two of three games. Mt. Baker Jr. Boys placed fifth overall in the Calgary Central Memorial Rams Tournament.
Lost 48-78 vs EP Scarlett (DIV 2 – Rank 8)
Won 72-58 vs home team Central Memorial Rams (DIV 3-RANK 3)
Won 72-58 vs Croxford Cavs (not ranked)
Jaycen Lubbers, Jeff Lalach and Josh Baume were selected to receive Player of the Game awards. Greg Rebagliati was awarded with the Tournament MVP Honour.
Mt. Baker Jr. Boys played with heart, grit and determination all weekend long. Every game was exciting, intense and aggressively played. The boys represented Mt. Baker very well and earned respect from the competition and tournament organizers.

Senior Boys Basketball (Cardston) (written by Marg Atwood)
The WILD Senior Boys enjoyed their first tournament of the season in Cardston and were well taken care of by the tournament director, which included a complimentary breakfast at the school cafeteria.
They were unable to pull off a win in the three games played but progressively got better each game, learning team and individual responsibilities on the floor and on the bench. The tournament was challenging and it was nice to see the boys come together throughout the weekend. Reese Johnston was recognized for his hard work and hustle.
Sebastian Butler went down in the last game with an ankle injury but should be good to go by next weekend. Dawson Atwood controlled the boards with rebounds and blocked shots.
Point totals was a well-rounded team effort. The boys remained positive and excited in all three games and they look forward to travelling to Castlegar this weekend.
