Gold and Two Silvers for HCAA Basketball Teams

HCAA basketball teams continued their success in basketball at the 2011 SHSAA Provincial Championships ("Hoopla").  The Humboldt Collegiate girls captured the Provincial Championship title in the 4A Girls category, both the Middle Lake girls and the Lake Lenore boys brought home silver in 1A Girls and 1A Boys respectively, and the Lake Lenore girls finished fourth in 1A Girls.

The Humboldt Collegiate girls won their first ever championship.  The girls, seeded third in the province, faced North Battleford Comp in the semi-final and Moose Jaw Peacock in the final.  Both games saw similar results with Humboldt winning by about 20 in each game on a very potent offense and solid defense.  Humboldt played steady throughout both games, never giving their opponents a chance to go on any prolonged scoring runs, and playing with the type of confidence a championship team exudes.

The Middle Lake girls team captured their third silver medal in four years in 1A girls play.  Middle Lake got past Frontier in a scrappy semifinal game, but lost a double-overtime heartbreaker to Central Butte in the final.  Lake Lenore settled for fourth, losing to Frontier in the bronze medal game.

In the 1A boys category, Lake Lenore made their third consecutive appearance at Hoopla, and for the second straight year captured the silver medal, having beat Sturgis in the semifianl but losing to Regina's Harvest City in the final.  The gold medal game was a wide open affair with 180 points scored in total.  Lake Lenore was outmatched by the Regina team but never once let up in their effort and kept their emotions well in check.
