The Morinville Community High School Junior Boys and Girls hit the court Friday to start their weekend-long Invitational tournament.
The Junior Girls defeated the Edwin Parr Predators 72-21 in their opening game of the tournament. But perhaps the real win for the team was that they all wore pink socks during the game to play “for all who struggle with cancer.”
The boys hit the court against Edwin Parr in their opener as well and defeated the team 67-16.
Both teams battled their way to their respective final games Saturday afternoon. The Girls defeated St. Josephs from Whitecourt to take gold. The MCHS Jr. High boys lost 58-52 to the Parkland Panthers from Edson in a rough game. “The Panthers were a big and fast team who played very physical,” said Coach Kent Lessard. “The Wolves battled all game long just coming up short.”
Both teams play their final games Tuesday and will enter playoffs next week.
