St. Anne Shines at 10th Annual Rainbow-Catholic Coed Basketball Tournament

St. Anne Angels Cole Thomson and Jennifer Chalut celebrate their success at the 10th Annual Rainbow-Catholic Coed Basketball Tournament

April 26, 2006 - This past weekend saw quite a haul of both team and individual awards for the St. Anne Grade 5/6 Co-ed Basketball team at the 10th annual Rainbow-Catholic Coed Basketball Tournament.

On Saturday morning, the team fought a closely-matched battle againstt Valleyview and prevailed, winning the Consolation Medal 26-20. Chris Marcotte led all scorers with an incredible 18 points!

St. Anne entered a boy and girl into the Xcalibur competition, which is a shooting accuracy contest that pitted our 2 entries againstt 15 other schools. Jennifer Chalut and Cole Thomson finished 3rd in the initial 16 team competition, making them eligible for the four-team semi-finals. In the semis, Chalut and Thomson scored an incredible 57 points, missing the all-time tournament mark by only 3 points and qualifying them for the finals againstt last years winner, St. James.

In the final, Chalut and Thomson continued to shoot the lights out (from distances as far away as 20 feet, 18 feet and 15 feet!!) and were proclaimed the Grade 5/6 first place champions for the Xcalibur Competition!! Success continued for Chalut and Thomson. Chalut was awarded one of 6 Lion Heart awards, given to the top defensive and hard-working players in the tournament. Thomson followed up with the St. Charles College "Best Foot Forward" award, bringing home a new pair of leather basketball shoes.

Overall, the hard work and determination of the team was rewarded and Mr. T would like to congratulate all the team for their success and also their great fans who supported them all along the way. Thanks to Mr. Thomson who devoted countless hours, and his vocal chords to this fantastic team. Way to go Angels!
