The Varsity Boys Basketball Sabres slugged it out with WC Miller in the Zone Final last night. The action was fast and furious. The score remained close until the 4th quarter when Cole Baker went off the chain hitting 4 threes and 3 layups in the last 6 minutes leading Sanford to an 84 - 67 Zone 4 championship win! Logan Schreyer led all scorers with 37 points, Charlie Major, Greg Zeaton plus JV callups Colby Hay and Aaron McCorriston took turns playing shutdown defence on the Aces best player. Logan Nyman and Zac VanWalleghem cleaned up the 4th quarter rebounds to seal the win.
Thanks to the Varsity Girls team and all the fans who came to cheer. Kudos to Will Johnson who spent the entire game in the Sabre mascot uniform.
The team now travels to Ste Anne for the Provincial InterZone playoff tonight at 6pm.
Although the JV Badminton team planned to start the season last night in Carman, a power outage resulted in most events being cancelled. Only the girls doubles and boys singles events remained. After exciting round robin play and winning records, all Sanford players advanced to the playoffs! Congrats to Jackson Wilson on an incredible 2nd place tournament finish and to the dynamic and powerful duo of Abby Kirkness and Ava Hamilton who remained undefeated throughout, taking home the 1st place fruit basket in girls doubles. Delicious. Way to go Sabres!
