It is hard to believe that we are half way through the school year. Senior sports will be starting up again, after taking a week break for January exams.
Basketball, curling and wrestling programs will be preparing for their playoff runs and our first spring sport, badminton, is due to begin in a couple weeks.
The SCCHS Colt/Arden wrestling team travelled to Warman for the Scratch and Claw Wrestling Tournament in early January.
Congratulations to Elite wrestlers Aleah Nickel and Sebastien Marchand who both placed first in their weight classes. Shout out to Elite wrestlers, George Unger and Elijah Harden, who placed second. On the Novice side, congratulations to Kaitlyn Burns who placed first and Grace Geisbrecht, Kat DeKlerk, Trina Friesen, Josh Laroya and Blaid Snedden on finishing in third place. The Comp wrestlers are off to the Golden Bear High School Tournament in Edmonton on February 1 and 2.
