The ‘Lukes Report

By Scott Maxwell
A quick roundup of all the action from your St. Marys DCVI Salukis.
The junior girls basketball team played Stratford Northwestern in the Huron Perth finals, looking to advance to WOSSA. The team had some concerns, as Northwestern dominated them 51-35 the last time they played. Northwestern played with that same fire at first, as they had a 25-19 lead going into the half, but DCVI’s junior girls showed a resiliency they hadn’t often needed to show all season, as a 19-10 second half completed the comeback, giving the Salukis the 38-35 win. They advanced to WOSSA for the second year in a row. Abbey Thorup proved she can perform when truly needed, scoring 17 points in the game, including eight in the second half.
Aside from that, practices have started for the winter season sports. The Salukis will be participating in boys basketball, curling, nordic skiing, swimming, and girls volleyball.
