The junior boys are off to the Prairie Christian Academy tournament in Three Hills on Oct. 27 & 28. The junior boys and girls have their last league game Tuesday, October 31 with the boys playing at Notre Dame Collegiate and the girls at Highwood High School. Both games begin at 3:45. In league playoff action, our senior boys and girls lost out in two hard fought matches while the junior varsity boys defeated Holy Trinity Academy in their first round playoff game. The JV boys will take on Foothills Composite High on October 26 at 6:00 pm at the “Comp” in the league semi-final. Go Eagles, Go!
