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.
