It’s Rebel Classic weekend.

As the calendar flips to February, W.R. Myers High School prepares to host another edition of the classic, which tips off Friday.

“It’s going to be a good tournament this year,” said Rebels boys coach Dale Nielsen. “It’s a very nice range of teams from southern Alberta and beyond. There will be many good teams attending. Specifically, Kate Andrew’s and Brooks have proven very talented this year, with many fine players likely headed for post-secondary. They are also both ranked provincially in the ASAA rankings.”

The coach added the tournament also features a few teams that fans in southern Alberta should have an interest in checking out.

“We also have Bert Church and Wetaskiwin attending who we don’t see as often, but they are historically well-coached programs.”

Kate Andrews and Bert Church kick things off at 4 p.m. at Myers, before McCoy and Wetaskiwin hit the floor at 6 p.m. at Central Elementary School.

Central will host Brooks and WinstonChurchill High School at 8 p.m., while the host Rebels will take on Vauxhall in the marquee matchup, also set for 8 p.m., inside the gym at Myers.
