The Weyburn Comprehensive Eagles senior boys basketball team won the provincial 4A championship for the second year in a row, after winning both of their games at Hoopla on March 23 and 24.
The senior boys met up with Moose Jaw Vanier on March 23 and the Eagles edged them out by a score of 85-80, which moved them into the championship final on against Moose Jaw Central on March 24.
“We split the series with Vanier this year, so we knew it was going to be a tough game. We came out with a very strong first half and they responded with an exceptional second half. We were able to execute both offensively and defensively late in the fourth quarter to secure a berth into the championship game,” said coach Lars Guenther.
In the championship game, Weyburn came out on top by a score of 98-76.
“We lost both games against Central this year and they have played like the number one 4A seed all year. We knew we would have to play well in all areas of the game and sustain it from start to finish. We were able to do that,” said Guenther.
“The lads definitely saved their best game for the one that counted the most. I am very proud of them.”
