The Big Valley Bulldogs hosted the Christ-King School Chargers last Wednesday, Feb. 4, winning 56-16, though such a deficit isn’t usual for the Stettler girls, according to coach Kristy Gulak.

“This season we’ve shown a lot of growth and improvement,” she said. “We’re playing better as a team and improving individual skills. The score against Big Valley isn’t indicative of the season we’ve had.”

It’s a growing year for the Chargers, who have several Grade 5 students on the roster, and saw much of its scoring power age out at the end of last year.

Still, the girls have been playing hard all season and having a good amount of fun as they’ve learned to work well together.

There was plenty of movement on the court with the game as both teams spent a good amount of time chasing the ball from one net to the other, without either team owning the ball for most of the game. The Bulldogs simply had better setup and netting skills, Gulak said.

The Chargers will host the Erskine junior basketball team tonight, starting at about 3:15, in the Christ-King gymnasium. Everyone’s welcome to come support the girls, Gulak said.
