The MCHS SR Girls took silver in the Salisbury Composite tournament Saturday after falling 75-42 to the host team.
The Girls started the invitational tournament in Sherwood Park on Thursday with a 67-24 win over St. Josephs.
That victory was followed by a much closer victory Friday when MCHS narrowly defeated Bev Facey Community High School 59-57 to move onto Saturday’s gold-medal game.
Saturday afternoon’s gold game placed MCHS up against Salisbury Composite, a 4A team.
Though defeated by a wide margin of 75-42, the team can take pride in playing well against a higher-level team.
The Sr. Boys did not place in the medals this time.
The Sr. Girls play their first home game of the season at MCHS Wednesday afternoon.
