Sr. Lady Wolves wrap season

The Sr. Girls played Barrhead in their first game over the weekend at Zones. The team struggled to score and lost a close 37-32.

Coach Ken Lessard said the Lady Wolves responded well in the second game, beating Whitecourt’s Hilltop 76-35.
In the consolation final the girls lost in overtime to Edwin Parr 50-48 in an exciting and close game.

“Overall the young Lady Wolves enjoyed a successful season,” Lessard said. “They are returning eight players for next season, so the team will work towards returning to the top of the zone.”

First-place finish

Congratulations to the MCHS Sr. Boys for taking first place in Zones this past weekend.

Kent Lessard said the Wolves went into the North Central Zone tourney ranked No. 3 due to a mid-season loss to John Maland of Devon, but the boys rose to the challenge, winning their first zone banner since 2010.

“It is an exciting win for the team who only have two grade 12s,” Lessard said.

The team leaves Wednesday for Medicine Hat where they will compete in the Alberta Schools Athletic Association 3A Boys Basketball Championships.

Weekend results were as follows:

Game 1 MCHS 78 – Hilltop 31
Game 2 MCHS 69 – Barrhead 36
Game 3 MCHS 60 – Parkland Edson 43.
