Senior Boys Basketball
The month of January saw the Sr. Boy's Basketball team return to action
after the Christmas break. The Barons travelled to Sherwood Park and
competed in the Bev Facey Falcon Invitational Tournament. The Boys
won their opening game over Archbishop Jordan from Sherwood Park
and then dropped a couple of close contests, losing to the host Falcons 85
-81 and then to the #1 ranked AAA Strathcona Christian 76-68. The losses snapped the Barons impressive season long 12 game win streak.
The Purple and Gold followed up the Facey Tournament with a home and
home set against the Vikings from North Battleford Comp. The two game
series saw both teams win on the home schools court. The Vikings won
the opener 81-69 at LCHS and then the Barons rebounded two nights later winning at NBCHS 76-44.
The Boys just wrapped up a solid week of practice and will now shut
down for a week to focus on semester I Final Exams.
The team returns to action
on January 29 & 30 when they
travel down the Yellowhead to
North Battleford to compete in
the Crusader Classic Tournament hosted by John Paul II
