Opening ceremonies held for provincial tournament

The Lakers placed second in the league, which was enough for the team to head to Zones in Rocky Mountain House Nov. 17.

There they faced some of stiff competition, as teams from across Central Alberta fought for a chance to go to Provincials.

The Lakers fought them all off to take home the gold medal and will be viewing for the provincial championship once again Nov. 22-24.

This year, the provincial tournament will be hosted by the West Central High School Rebels out of Rocky Mountain House.

While the boys team will be representing Sylvan Lake at provincials, the senior girls team will not, as their season has come to an end.

For those unable to hear on the Sylvan Lake team in person, Provincial games can be watched live on YouTube this year at

The schedule of games can be found on the Alberta Schools’ Athletic Association’s website,
