Bassano senior boys hosting weekend volleyball tournament
Volleyball at Bassano School is in full swing with seven teams, said school athletic director Nathan Hodgson.
A junior varsity boys team, senior boys and senior girls team are joined by two intermediate and two junior high teams this year, he said.
Interest in the sport remains the same as last year.
Hodgson said there were 17 boys and 16 girls who tried out for the senior teams.
Both high school teams only have one grade 12 player.
The bulk of the girls will return next season when Bassano hosts the provincial volleyball championship.
Hodgson said the school anticipates having 24 girls wanting to play high school volleyball.
“We will run a pretty solid program next year with junior varsity and varsity,” he said.
Teams were away at tournaments this past weekend. There will be six home tournaments.
Hodgson said the senior high boys tournament will be held this weekend. The senior girls tournament will be held in late October.
Bassano School will host the intermediate boys zone tournament in November.

Buffalos drop close decision against Cardston Cougars
It was a good game but unfortunately the Brooks Composite High Buffalos dropped a 23-8 exhibition football game to the Cardston Cougars.
Last Thursday’s game in Lethbridge matched the Buffalos against a team ranked second in the province in tier 3.
Head coach Braedon Cameron said the Buffalos knew they would be in tough against the Cougars.
The game was similar to the team’s 23-7 loss the previous week to the Crescent Heights Vikings.
The game was close to start but penalties and inconsistency offensively proved costly.  Full Story >

Oilers sweep Bandits to open AJHL regular season
The Brooks Bandits (0-2) dropped their home opener for the second straight year to their divisional rivals, the Okotoks Oilers (2-0) on Saturday night by a 3-1 score.
The Alberta Junior Hockey League victory gave the Oilers a sweep of their season-opening home and home series, following up a 4-2 win the night before.
A crowd of 1,406 at the Centennial Regional Arena in Brooks was the best home opener crowd for the Bandits since 2013, the year the team raised its RBC Cup championship banner. But Jake Theis (Chanhassen, MN) provided the only major burst of noise from the assembled fans with his goal in the second period.  Full Story >
