SOSS Hornets warming up on the court – alumni games and annual Okana Quen
This weekend – two games with former players – one for the old timers on Friday and one Saturday with more recent grads.
Old Timers (2010 and earlier) Hornets won 77-69
Younger Alumna (2011-2015) Hornets won 90-67
Well the new season is upon us and there are some new changes this year. The team is being coached by former stand-outs Greet Gill and Sunny Buttar. These two great players are also working with Kevin Chase.
I would also like to acknowledge the generous donation of 500 dollars made by Scott Wallace to help assist the team and SOSS athletics stay strong. Costs have been rising and you can only ask the players and the local businesses for so much. If you can make a donation towards SOSS Sr. Boys Basketball and or Athletics that would be greatly appreciated every little bit counts.
