The ECS Senior Girls' Basketball team held their 'Shoot For A Cure' Pink Tournament this past weekend, and it was a great success and a lot of fun, and although the Elecs didn't come in first, they played hard and placed 4th. The girl won their first game against the Moose Jaw Cyclones then fell to the Weyburn Eagles and then fought hard but couldn't quite pull ahead of the Notre Dame Hounds. 

"For the week that they had, they did pull together," shared Elecs Coach, Ashleigh Dzuba. "It's been a very emotional week for them, losing a friend and classmate, so what they've gone through I think they've done well, they've pulled together, every tournament we see improvement with them. They are a very young team, and they're constantly improving, they haven't quite peaked yet, but I'm hoping we'll do that at the right time."

It's a lot of work to put on this tournament, but it's so worth it," shared Elecs coach, Jessie Smoliak. " Especially when you see the families we help. Seeing the Sinclair family and how much they appreciate it and what it means to them and how the girls see they are taking it because the girls are learning to pay it forward and do things for others and that's huge especially when they are at such a young age. That's what we are trying to teach them, to pay it forward."

It's the ninth year of holding this great tournament, and they are looking to bring together all the families they have helped together for the tenth annual pink tournament celebration of them helping families and for the families battling cancer. 

The ECS Senior girls basketball team and their coaches are thankful to all who helped to put on the tournament, all the teams for coming out and playing their best and all the supportive parents and the community for coming out to help support the teams and the Sinclair family. The Elecs will be spending the week practising for their next exhibition tournament in Weyburn next weekend.
