Theresetta Junior High students, under the skillful coaching of Mitch Finkbiner, proudly display the banner they earned at the 2022 CWAJHAA (Central Western Alberta Junior High Athletic Association) competition.
The badminton competition took place in Red Deer on May 10 – 12.
The 1J division of this association has over 30 teams and includes schools whose junior high population is under 100 students. The CWAJHAA tournament itself has around 60 schools who take part from five different divisions all around Red Deer, Lacombe, Ponoka and Innisfail.
Placing in the medals is a great achievement in itself, considering how many schools and large population centres take part.
