The Chinook Sugarbeeters hosted and decisively won the tourney. The McDonald’s, principals at Box Elder, came over for dinner and the Cubs game on Frida...

    Fred Watstein|Oct 26, 2016

    The Ladies hosted their parents and handed out flowers for parents night Tuesday against Centerville. Unfortunately the ladies were not able to bring home the win. Ending the season with a loss didn’t stop them from still enjoying the game. The score for the three sets were 18-25 16-25 7-25.

    Fred Watstein|Oct 19, 2016

    The Pioneers came up against one of the top teams in the state on Friday. If not for the first quarter we could have had them. The Geraldine - Highwood Rivals came out rockin' and had three scores by the end of the first quarter. Any other team would have rolled over, but not our Pioneers. The boys came out in the second quarter and Laurence Allderdice punched one in the end zone. Then one minute later we got the ball back and Brock Proulx passed to Laurence Allderdice for the touchdown and a...
