Wolfpack win at Stampede Showdown

It was a busy start to the month for three Whitehorse basketball teams in Calgary for the Calgary Stampede Showdown Basketball Tournament from July 5 to 7. Three Wolfpack Minor Basketball teams went a combined 11-2 and each won its respective division.

The under 13 boys team had the best record of the bunch, finishing a perfect 4-0. The under 11 boys team finished 4-1, with the lone loss coming in overtime to the team the Wolfpack ultimately beat in the final.

Finally, the under 15 boys team finished 3-1 with one win only being secured as time expired. (John Hopkins-Hill)
