The Theresetta Knights completed another successful season by competing at the highest level possible for Junior High Athletics at the Central Western Alberta Junior High Athletic Association (CWAJHAA) tournament. The tournament only takes the top eight teams from Central Alberta spanning from Rocky Mountain House to Coronation.
The Theresetta boys started their tournament by defeating Clive. They went on to play the eventual champs Spruce View and lost to them. The boys completed the round robin by defeating Rocky Christian in a third game.
The boys continued to play well but found themselves in the bronze medal match. After two close games in the finals, the boys placed a hard earned fourth place.
The Theresetta girls travelled to Caroline for their tournament. The girls started the day by defeating Bluffton in two games. The girls continued to play well and beat Koinonia Christian School from Red Deer.
They played host school Caroline in the semi-finals and defeated the Cougars in two games. The Knights ended the tournament by playing Bluffton in the finals. The defending champion Theresetta Knights won both games and captured their fourth CWAJHAA championship in five years.
