Hal High Red Hawks – Judi Paul’s Class – Merci for this!
The senior boys’ basketball team defeated Fenelon Falls 37 – 32 in exhibition play. Luke Watson scored 15 points and 15 rebounds for his second double-double of the season. Chris Allison had 13 points and 5 steals and Justin Levely had 8 rebounds and 4 points.
Junior Basketball
The junior boys’ basketball team played an intensive, back and forth game against Fenelon Falls but were defeated 33-28.  Zach Cox scored 14 points and pulled down 14 rebounds for his first double/double of the season.  
The Red Hawk wrestling team travelled to Peterborough where they won 60 percent of their matches at the first tournament of the season. Keith Burley and Taylor Dair each placed third in their weight classes.
Congratulations to Gage Shelly, Cody Cox, and Dylan Graham on their gold medal performances.
The senior girls’ volleyball team travelled to LCVI to play in their first tourney of the year. The girls worked hard and proved to be a great contender amongst Double A rivals Brock and St. Thomas, winning a set against last year’s Kawartha champs.
The veteran wrestlers competed at the Ajax tournament and posted some impressive results. Bringing home gold medals were Mike Mazara, Bailey Walker, Tara O’Sullivan and Maia O’Sullivan. Kayla Gardiner earned silver, while Lily Coneybeare and Caitlyn Griffin earned bronze. Special mention to Greg Baumgartner who only lost one match in a tough class.
The senior boys’ basketball team defeated the St. Thomas Trojans by a score of 52-34.  Jesse Lefebvre and Luke Watson had 14 points apiece, and Damon Flatman had 11 points.
The junior boys’ basketball team earned a convincing victory over the St. Thomas squad.
Sir Sam’s Ski Area will be open this weekend with special lift deals and that lovely brand new plexiglass covered, full sound system equipped moving carpet replacing the old T-Bar that services the bunny hill, terrain park, Cash Register and the east side runs.
Had a chat with Chris Bishop last week and he is very excited about the plans for this year.

The Bonny and Clyde mixed bonspiel held last weekend at the Haliburton Curling Club featured guns, fedoras and many Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway wannabees.
Larry Holden’s rink took first place.
Many new members are enrolled this season and in fact two brand new members Andrea and Steve Roberts who are first year curlers helped to sweep Holden capture the crown.
