Bluffton School basketball teams brought home gold medals from the Wolf Creek league final tournament held in Lacombe March 13.

Assistant principal Dan Walker, who coaches the boys’ team, said both teams played exceptionally well.

“I knew we had good teams, but it is the first time Bluffton has ever won the league,” he said. “We are pretty pumped.”

Walker said Bluffton girls defeated Lacombe Christian 29-21 in the final and the boys won 56-53.

“The girls were definitely a better team, the boys were close — too close for comfort,” he said.

Bluffton basketball teams also did well at 1J CWAJAA tournaments held recently.

The girls, who played in Rocky Mountain House, won the gold, defeating Halkirk in the final game.

The boys, who played in Caroline, took silver, losing to Mecca Glen in the gold medal game.
