Busy Weekend in Estevan for the Senior Boys
Sr Boys were in Estevan first taking on Warman who never led the Bears all game but managed to tie with a fluke buzzer beater 3. Warman went on to win in a 5min OT. The boys then rolled Melville and lost a close one vs a great shooting Regina Hudda. Boys are home to Melfort on Monday and taking on Paradise Hill Friday at LCA in Saskatoon.
3 on 3 will resume play this week tipping off in Bjorkdale on Tuesday.
Jr. Girls Wins in Carrot River
Jr. Girls survived a game vs Ministik who's high pressure play caused our team some grief and errors. The girls have officialy locked up first place. The team travels to Nipawin this week and we will host the final the following week.
Athletes and Volunteer of the Month
Volunteer of the Month
To be blunt Earl Santiago is a beauty. He can be found on days that end in Y loitering in the gym shooting a ball and looking for ways to help. Earl is a huge component of his Jr boys team but also is at most all home games working the table duties. Although still a year too young to play with the big dogs Earl attends Sr boys practice to give us 10 guys so we can roll with 5 on 5 concepts. Earl makes our teams better by bringing his positive energy to the court, score table and school. Thanks for all your work Earl.
Athletes of the Month
Luis Sabayton is well known across the province as perhaps one of the best outside shooters in high school basketball. His defensive capabilities have improved immensely this year and are also known to go end to end on a fast break and slice through a defense while making it look effortless. He usually ends up bleeding from the mouth at some point in the game but if he’s on, we’re on. Good job Luis.
Harleigh Pohl just added basketball to her schedule this year but has shown no rust or inexperience on the defensive side of the ball. She defines the motto everyone can work hard and play great defense. I have seen very few players learn and execute new to them man and rebounding concepts this quickly. Hopefully her successes on D and transfer some confidence to her O game and she will be a great complete player to watch coming up. Way to keep learning Harleigh.
