The Dale Wentz Memorial Gymnasium at St. Michael's School in Pincher Creek was filled with young basketball players on Friday afternoon, March 13.  A total of 10 mixed-gender teams from four elementary schools participated in a Mini Basketball tournament.  Representing were 3 teams from St. Michael's, 2 teams from Livingstone School in Lundbreck, 3 Canyon School teams, and 2 teams from Isabelle Sellon School in the Crowsnest Pass.

Scores were kept during the games but not recorded for posterity.  The enthusiasm of the young athletes was contagious, the pace was relentless, and there was plenty of good basketball for onlookers to enjoy.  The future of the popular sport in this southwestern corner of the province is assured.
