Basketball districts for junior boys will be taking place at Biggar Central School tomorrow for a few teams in the west central region.

One team is heading into the tournament on a high as they have yet to lose a game all season.

Kindersley Composite School's junior boys squad is looking to make this a season they will remember as they're on the cusp of a perfect record.

Just this past weekend, the boys were crowned champions at an invitational tournament in Swift Current. Not only did they finish in first place, but they crushed their competition on their way to gold. The team defeated the tournament hosts by 40+ points along with big wins over Weyburn and Herbert.

"The team's doing very well. We're all friends and no one hates each other," said Steven Mei and Prince Pacis, who both play on the team. "I'm very confident that we will win."

Coaches Angy Johnson and Taylor Retterath started the campaign with a plethora of talent once the basketball season began. So much talent that they had to split the roster into two squads.

Both squads have had a chance to impress their fellow peers, parents and the coaches this winter. In fact, one of their most intense matchups was when both teams played each other at a home tournament in mid-January.

But, cuts had to be made for their districts roster. Most of the cuts were made by the players themselves because they were unable to commit due to other extra-curricular activities.

Now, the roster for districts has been finalized, and the players are feeling fresh after their tournament victory in Swift Current.

An interesting feature about this side is how the players are made up of different backgrounds. As Mei and Pacis talked about their teammates, they shared their thoughts on their multicultural squad.

"It's pretty cool actually," said Pacis and Mei. "We have one from Africa, six from Phillippines, one from China, and three from Canada. We're finally learning about everyone's backgrounds!"

The team will be travelling to Biggar tomorrow morning to compete in the day-long tournament.
