The basketball and hockey skills of Alexander Galt Regional High School’s male and female athletes dazzled throughout southern Quebec last weekend. Notably, the Junior Boys’ Hockey Team went undefeated and won the Soulanges Pionniers’ Tournament in Saint Polycarpe, and the Senior Girls’ Basketball Team won a tournament held at Sherbrooke’s CEGEP.
The Junior Boys’ Hockey team won all five games they played on their way to being tournament champions by winning the finals 3-2 against Cardinal-Roy, said Galt’s Athletic Director Robbie Fisk. The winning goal was scored with 56 seconds remaining in the game. The Senior Boys’ Hockey team lost 1-2 in their final of the same tournament. The Bantam Boys’ Hockey Team went 1-1-1 and failed to make the finals.
The Senior Girls’ Basketball Team went 3-1, winning their final championship game by four points. Eight teams participated in the tournament. The Bantam Girls’ Basketball Team made a valiant effort but failed to win a game.
The Senior Boys Basketball Team participated in a tournament at Howard S. Billings High School in Chateauguay, but Fisk had not yet heard what the results were.
