Rimbey’s junior B boys and girls basketball teams once again dominated in their most recent tournament.
The girls, coached by Rachel Hudson and Arna Schatschnider, placed first, while the boys, coached by Hudson and Holy Waldron, placed second.
“Our first games were good competition. The last game for our girls, it was very close. I think we won by four points. There was lots of back and forth the whole game. It was good competition,” said Hudson.
In the finals the boys lost to the Bentley Panthers, who are actually an A team but have several younger players. They were outscored by about 20 points.
Hudson hoped her boys would give the Panthers more of a run for their money but she says the experience was good practice. “They just felt defeated and acted that way,” she said. “But the boys played great. They’ve moulded together as a team.”
The tournament also featured a skills competition. The Bentley boys and Lacombe Christian Schools’ girls won.
