Wolves have strong tournament weekend
The MCHS Sr Girls played the J. Percy Page tourney over the weekend and took second place in the event.
The Lady Wolves defeated Fort McMurray’s F.R Mecredi 58-29 in their first game, then defeated Arch Bishop MacDonald 44-42 by playing some fantastic defense 44-42. Coach Kent Lessard said the team was once again hit by injuries and played without their two starting guards.
The Lady Wolves took on Holy Trinity of Edmonton in the final at J. Percy Page High School on Saturday and were defeated 65-63.
“The team played very well without their two starting guards and in spite of a huge discrepency in the fouls for the game,” Lessard said, adding the girls accumulated 30 fouls to Holy Trinity’s four. “It definitely was frustrating for the team but they continued to battle until the very end. Amanda Kluthe lead the team with 13 points, but it was a total team effort as the girls fought back over & over again to keep it close.”
Lessard said the Lady Wolves continue to improve as a team and are looking forward to peaking in time for the North Central Zone Championships in March.
