Stettler girls beat Christ King, wins CARA Consolation

This past weekend Stettler’s Christ King Catholic was host to the CARA Consolation Basketball Tournament.

This past weekend Stettler’s Christ King Catholic was host to the CARA Consolation Basketball Tournament, which the Stettler girls won, beating Christ King in the finals on Saturday afternoon, March 4.

According to Coach Rachelle Campeau, the Stettler girls played a strong defence throughout the tournament, which helped them to perform better than the other teams, besides the fact that their shooting was on point.

“The biggest thing for me was how much the girls were cheering for each other and stepping up with two of the girls Kenya and Marcia not feeling well and so many teammates not able to make the tournament,” said Coach Graham Scott. “This group has played hard from day one, but they also made great strides with their basketball skills of defence, dribbling, passing and shooting.”

Campeau added that the improvement of the girls from the beginning of the year to the end of the season has been incredible.

“There is no comparison and I don’t even know where to start on their improvements,” Campeau said. “Communication, running plays, seeing the court and cutting for opportunities, they truly amazed both Graham and me with their efforts and growth.”

Speaking of the team in general, Scott said, “Beyond their amazing team spirit, they also made great strides with their work ethic, confidence and quick decision making. We are grateful to those that had a hand in arranging and hosting the tournament.”
