Basketball well underway at Barriere Secondary

If you enjoy a good basketball game you might like to stop in at the Barriere Secondary gymnasium when the home teams are playing.

He notes the BSS Senior Boys have placed second and third in their first two tournaments, and the Senior Girls went 1-2 at the Norkam tournament Dec, 6 – 7.
