The sound of bouncing basketballs are filling the halls of Barriere Secondary.

The winter sport season is definitely off to a good start at the high school.

Vice-principal Cory Carmicheal has again taken the junior boys on this season as they defend their tier 2  Championship title for a third straight year.

The junior girls are being coached by Tiffany and Rachael Bowser and are looking like a strong squad competing to regain the West Zone tier 2 title this season.

Mark your calendars for the Junior Girls Cougar Classic this weekend on Dec. 11 and 12.

Both the senior boys and girls teams have set their sights on winning the West Zone title and qualifying for the Provincial Championships this basketball season.

Both teams trained hard in the off season to get ready and prepared for this very busy and competitive season.

The teams are doing multiple fundraisers to earn money to help get them to their goal of qualifying for Provincials.

The senior boys basketball team are selling Christmas trees at Barriere AG Foods on Sunday, Dec. 13 and 20 as a fundraiser for the team.

The team will also be hosting a Chicken and Rib, Steak, or Pasta Dinner fundraiser in partnership with the Station House Restaurant on Jan. 17.

Tickets are $20 and would make excellent stocking stuffers this holiday season.

Barriere Senior Cougar Classics tournament dates are Jan. 8 and 9 for the boys, and Jan. 15 and 16 for the girls team.
