The Junior Girls team hosted their home basketball tournament on Sat. Feb. 23.

Teams from William E. Hay, Gus Wetter and Sedgewick came out for the competition.

It was a fast-paced tournament as the teams all had to win their first game in order to move onto the final.

The Knights had a good first game against Sedgewick. The girls played hard and were able to win by a handful of baskets, which allowed them to advance to the final against Gus Wetter, who also won their first game against William E. Hay.

The final game was a nail biter!

Parents commented that it was hard to watch such a close game.

The score was tight for the whole second half of the game as the two teams took turns scoring baskets with the Knights ultimately winning the game.

The final score was 51 – 50 for the Knights who were excited to keep the first place trophy in the building.

Ski Trips

The Junior High classes, accompanied by many parents, travelled to Canmore on Sun. Feb. 24 for their annual ski trip in the mountains.

The group travelled by charter bus and enjoyed some game of Uno and Crib to pass the time before arriving at their hotel for some water sliding and a good night’s sleep before the first full day of skiing.

The group skied for two days, both days at Lake Louise Ski Resort where they reported good conditions even though the mornings were a little chilly.

After their second full day of skiing, the tired group loaded up the bus around 4 p.m. for the trek home.

After a stop for supper, the group arrived back in Castor late in the evening, all smiles and with another successful ski trip under their belts.

The Theresetta Elementary classes also went on a ski trip recently.

The group headed out to the Valley Ski Club on Thurs. Feb. 28 for their day on the slopes.

The group arrived nice and early to grab their gear and while some started skiing right away, others spent a bit of time in lessons freshening up their skills.

Even though the day started chilly and cloudy, the group lucked out in the weather department as the cold wind lessened and the clouds vanished as the day went on.
