With school beginning Sept. 5, the high-school sport season is underway. There will be five fall sports — football, cross country, golf, soccer and volleyball. 


The first championship will take place Saturday, Sept. 9 when the SWAC district golf tournament runs in Eastend at Streambank Golf Course. Tee off time is 10 a.m. with golfers playing 18 holes.
Boys and girls will compete in both team and individual categories.
The top three females and top three males as well as the top female team and top male team will advance to the SHSAA provincial championships in Estevan Sept. 22-23. Students in grades 9-12 are eligible to participate in golf. Good luck to all golfers.
