The fall sports season is up and running. It looks like a busy week with tryouts, games and special events.
The Lakers football team has had a competitive last few weeks. The Lakers dropped their Rocky View league opener to a strong Bert Church Chargers team last Thursday and then followed that up with a competitive loss to the strong Bishop O’Byrne Bobcats. Leading the Lakers offensively in both weeks have been seniors Dakota Konschuh and Roy Outh. In the receiving corps, Cody Currey and Jacob Dubois have been improving every week. Defensively the Lakers are being led by Blair Rota in the secondary and Kalum Konschuh and Mitch Tessemaker at linebacker.

This Friday, September 14th, the Lakers have their home opener at 6 pm against the George McDougall Mustangs. It is also our annual double feature Friday Night Lights game, with an outdoor movie after the game. Monetary donations will be accepted for the CHS Terry Fox run. This is the best attended game of the year so come out and be part of the action.
