Sean Davies, 13 a student of St. Anthony’s, finished the season on top as captain of the Wheatland Warriors when they won their final playoff series against Cranbrook on Thursday, March 26. The Warriors finished the series early with two wins on Wednesday and Thursday, 3-1 total in the series, and crowned the South Central Alberta Hockey League Championship, receiving champ rings.

The Dynos were at the provincial tournament in Picture Butte over the weekend. The team came home with a second place finish, right behind the tournament hosts, the Sugar Kings. “The guys saved their best basketball for the last time of the year,” said head coach Jeff Messom. We played the style of basketball we have been wanting to play, intense, aggressive in your face. I was told one of the college scouts mentioned that it would be the fire power of Picture Butte versus the intensity of Drumheller in the final.”
