Boy’s Basketball

 

For the 2014 season, IHMS had two boy’s basketball teams:

  • A more experienced “A” team coached by Coach Martin with assistance from IHMS alumni Roman Meyer.
  • A developmental or “B” team, coached by IHMS alumni Coach Arndt.

 

The Boy’s “A” Team

The players on the boy’s “A” team were: Michael  L., Russell C., Nykola S., Karnvir B.,  Gabriele P., Hunter T., Stephen D., Andriy B., Aahandeep J., Collin A., Raphael C., and Ethan W. 

 

During regular season play, the boys played 8 games and won 5 of them. Note that there were 12 teams altogether in the league, and that each of them played only 8 games. So every team did not play every other team in regular season play.

 

The boy’s A team also entered 2 tournaments:

  • The St. Paul’s Tournament, where they finished a very respectable 3rd place.
  • The General Wolfe Tournament, where they played against mostly public school teams, and finished in 5th place.

During the playoffs, they won 1 game and lost 3, ending up in 4th place out of 12 teams. Despite their disappointment of not finishing higher than 4th place in the playoffs, the boys learned a lot of important basketball skills that can be used over the next few years as they continue to improve.

 

The Boy’s “B” Team

The players on the boys “B” team were: Stepan P., Mikey M., Edcel A., Gabriel M., Eldrec A., Armaan D., Sahil K., James L., Eric L., Yaroslav P., and Thomas T.

 

The boys on the “B” (developmental) team played 8 games in the regular season, and won 6 of them, an excellent record! They also entered the Westgate tournament where they played 3 games and won 2 of them. There are no rankings for developmental teams in the Manitoba Catholic Schools Athletic Association (they play for fun and experience), but overall the IHMS boy’s “B” team had a successful basketball season, winning more games than they lost and picking up a lot of valuable experience along the way!
