“It was a good weekend overall as we were able to practice a new system that the boys had never done before. We have a young team this year but lots of potential,” said coach Cory Olson.

Coming up on their tournament schedule will be a tournament on the Sept. 13-14 weekend in Estevan, then they are at the University of Saskatchewan for a tournament on the Sept. 20-21 weekend, and they will end off the month at Swift Current for a tournament on Sept. 27-28.
