Bantam Girls Basketball – District Champions
The Bantam Girls Basketball team hosted the South Central District Playoffs on Feb. 27. The draw included five teams from the district. The Bulldogs faced the Coronach Colts in their first game of the draw. The Bulldogs jumped out to an early lead and played some good team defence to open up opportunities on the offensive end. Final Score 45-18.
The Bulldogs would face the Assniboia Jets in the final. All indications suggested a very tight final was in order. The Bulldogs played their best basketball of the season and stepped up their game with smothering defence. The teamwork and quick feet took away most of the scoring opportunities for the Jets. The more the Jets pressed to score the more the Bulldogs took advantage of the fast break opportunities creating a lethal combination leading to a dominant performance. The Bulldogs took the Championship with an impressive 63-23. The win is even more impressive when you realize that Central Butte School only has a total of 10 girls in grade 7-9 and 8 players on the team. Great job girls and coach, Dale Peterson. Proof that hard work pays off.
