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.

Junior Boys have played one league game, where they lost a close one to Sahali.

Senior teams have their first home games on Wednesday, Dec. 11, and the Senior Boys Cougar Classic is this weekend, on Dec. 13 – 14.
