The Kindersley Composite School senior girls basketball team has been on a roll over the last couple weeks. Following first place finishes at tournaments over the last couple weeks, the Kobras have some momentum on their side heading into second semester.

Two weekends ago, the girls were at a tournament at Leader Composite School where they faced LCBI from Outlook, Kerrobert Composite School and the hosts. The Kobras managed to sweep through the competition on their way to being awarded a plaque for winning the tournament.

Then last weekend in Maple Creek, KCS pulled through with more convincing performances to earn first place at the senior girls tournament at Maple Creek Composite School. Not to mention back in December before the Christmas break the Kobras won a tournament in Eatonia, too.

Jennelle Minish is a teacher at Westberry Elementary School in Kindersley and is one of the coaches for this year's senior girls basketball team. Not only are a lot of her players in their first year on the senior team, but she too is experiencing all this for the first time as she has never coached basketball.

Minish admitted that she was nervous at the beginning, but said it's a thrill getting to coach the girls and to learn lots through KCS teacher Eugene Bucko who is helping out with coaching duties as well. She explained how despite a younger roster for this year's team, the girls are still flowing on the court.

The chemistry is clearly there and the whole unit is putting in the effort necessary to bring home the W's. They also have a bit of a break from the court now as the girls are hitting the books and studying for finals over the next few days.

But once second semester starts back up, the girls will return to the hardwood to practice up for another stretch of important games in February. Minish tells us more about what is coming up for the Kobras in the next few weeks.

There's lots to look forward to for the senior girls this winter. If you have the chance to check out one of their home games, take the opportunity to go out and cheer them on. At the rate they are going, it looks as if they're poised to string some more wins together this winter.
