The Kindersley Composite School senior boys and girls basketball teams had successful starts to their seasons last weekend.
The boys hosted a six-team tournament with representation from Unity, Eagleview (Onion Lake), Saskatoon Legacy, Delisle and Asquith competing in two pools.
The KCS boys started off against a very tough Unity team and played well, coming back late and taking the lead before losing 54-53.
But the team shook of the rust, learned from their mistakes and won their next three games to claim the tournament championship.
“We had a bit of a bump in our first game,” said coach Jason Hankewich. “The guys had some rust they had to shake off, but in the end, we only lost by one.
“We had a bit of a talk after that and by the second quarter of the second game we were gaining momentum and things were clicking,” he added.For more on this story, please see the Dec. 6 print edition of The Clarion.
