The Canadian Tire basketball league completed another season with gold and bronze medal games played Thursday evening, May 17.

In a league media release, the Grade 4-6 division was won by Team Grey. The entire team chipped in for the win using many of the strategies and techniques taught over the season. All players did a terrific job of spacing on the floor allowing for some great team passing. Team Grey defeated the Red team by 12 points.

Team Red was a force to reckon with all season and they captured the Grade 7-8 championship with a 20 point victory over a strong Gold team. This was a well-played game that entertained all who watched. With a fast paced flow up and down the court all players were winded at the final whistle.

The High School division went to Team Blue, defeating the Red squad. For many involved in the league it will be the last time playing in the league. The players have certainly elevated the game of basketball in this area with some long range shooting, quick passing and the odd dunk.

Organizers of the league, Mark McNeill, Kevin Darlington, Leigh Roberts and Tim Smith and very pleased and thankful to the many Saugeen District Secondary School students who volunteered to officiate and coach. They would also like to thank Canadian Tire for their support in keeping the league alive and providing opportunity for youth to participate in the great game of basketball.

To celebrate another successful season, Boston Pizza supplied pizza for teams to enjoy, while the coaches presented a coach’s award to each team.
