Tumbler Ridge SENIOR BOYS BASKETBALL WRAPS UP THE SEASON

The TRSS Senior Boys? Basketball season wrapped up last weekend after the team participated in their final tournament of the season, hosted by South Peace Secondary School in Dawson Creek. They faced off some very strong competition against North Peace Secondary of Fort. St. John and Fort. St. James Secondary School. Although the score did not reflect a victory against these schools, the TRSS Boys managed to play some of their best basketball games against these very talented teams. The last game was played against Mountain Christian School of Dawson Creek, and baskets for TRSS did not seem to stop until the 4th period was over. A lead of over 30 points had the boys finishing off the tournament very comfortably on a high note. Coaches Darwin Wren and Linda Helm were very proud of their team, which continued to demonstrate improvement in skills throughout the season. The commitment the players showed to the team was outstanding. Two of the students are graduating this year so the search is on for new recruits for next year. Darrell Krakowka (owner of Shop Easy in Tumbler Ridge) and his son Justin, who plays on the team, deserve special mention for sponsoring and bringing drinks for the team for all of their games. We never had any dehydrated players thanks to their very kind donations!
