During the final few weeks before the much anticipated winter break, many exciting games have taken place for the senior boys and senior girls’ basketball teams.
Starting out with the senior girls, they hosted their tournament on Friday and Saturday. With these being their first games together as a team, the girls were united and their endurance and depth of strength showed throughout the entire tournament.
With their skill and athleticism they easily handled and beat the L.V. Rogers and Creston teams. In addition, they played well against the skilled and developed Bonner’s Ferry team, from Idaho and took third place overall.
The senior boys meanwhile travelled to Mount Sentinel for an extremely competitive tournament in the valley.
They won their first game, it was close throughout but the senior boys made a final push and took the game by 10 points.
However, they then played a strong team from Creston, and despite a good effort came up short.
Finally, they played Mount Sentinel for third place. Despite their perseverance, the game’s early fouls and injuries cost the boys the game and they came in a respectable fourth place.
After illustrating their persistence and finesse, the senior boys’ next tournament will be an exciting one. Overall, after the well- deserved winter break, the J.L Crowe basketball teams will return and continue to play with stamina and resilience once again.
