The Comp Eagles senior girls basketball team was in North Battleford over the weekend.
Friday afternoon the girls played North Battleford Comprehensive in front of the entire school and it was an exciting game. It came down to the final seconds, but the Eagles lost by one point in an exciting match-up.
Friday night they played Lloydminster for the first time this season. Lloydminster is another 5A school so it was an important game for Regionals rankings which come out the second week in March. The Eagles ended up winning 48-24 in a low-scoring but important game.
On Saturday the girls played Melfort for the second time this season and had another good game, but lost by 10.
