Holy Redeemer Senior Men’s Basketball Wins Zones, Advance to Provincials

Edson’s Holy Redeemer High School’s Senior Men’s Basketball Team won their seventh Zone Championship title in the past eight years on March 9th.

The Zone Championship was held in Devon on March 8th and 9th. The Rebels entered the weekend ranked first in the zone, which meant they would receive a bye in the first round and an automatic entry into the semi-final.

The semi-final saw them face Mayerthorpe – a team they have faced numerous times in the past few zone championships. This time, the Rebels made short work of their opponents winning 81-42. The win would place them in the gold medal game against their Catholic rivals from Hinton – Gerard Redmond. The game was tense from beginning to end. At one point in the game, Hinton was winning by 10 points.

The Rebels dug dip and managed to come back and win gold, beating Gerard Redmond by a close score of 69-68. A number of veteran players on the Rebels helped secure the victory, including Grade 12 student Justin Breault who held the team together by scoring 31 points. Another key player came in the way of Neil Korolischuk who won many key rebounds to keep the Rebels close. And finally, Grade 11 student Anthony Warren made some major plays to help the Rebels get the lead.

The Rebels have now advanced to the 2019 2A Boys Basketball Provincial Championship. The Rebels will be ranked 10th and play games from March 13th to 16th.
