    Three Hills hosted zones on November 18 and 19 which marked the end of Volleyball season for the Sr. Dynos.
    The Drumheller Dynos played against teams from Calgary, Strathmore, Sundre, Didsbury and Three Hills. The Dynos won two out of five matches, one was their strongest plays, according to team captain Makenna Lutz.
    Lutz said, “The weekend was a great finish. We definitely had our highs and our lows but we played the best game of the season this past weekend against Prairie Christian Academy and took them to the third set.”
    For some of the athletes this will be their last tournament before graduating this year. Team captain Lutz and co-captain Nikki Thompson are among these.
    “It was definitely an emotional time for myself and Nikki Thompson as we said goodbye to everyone for the last time. But the season has been amazing, I think I can speak for us all when it comes to the friendships we’ve made with each other and always getting along and supporting one another. I’m very sad to be done for sure but I have so many memories I’m going to cherish forever with these girls!” Makenna Lutz said.

Referee clinic coming up Saturday

Basketball is a simple game where all that is needed is two teams, a ball and two hoops. However, it also needs a referee.
    To help get more interest in officiating basketball, there is a local clinic coming up on Saturday, November 26. There is always a need for more officiating to make the season go smoothly.
    The one-day clinic is open to anyone in Grade 10 or older, and there is no previous experience required. The clinic will give prospective referees a solid grounding in the rules of the game and how to officiate on the court. Refereeing is good way to keep in shape and maybe earn a few dollars.
    The clinic runs from 9 a.m., to 1 p.m. at St. Anthony’s School. Those wishing to attend are to bring clean indoor footwear and clothing suitable to run on the basketball court.
