A trip to Chestermere Lake Middle School on Wednesday afternoon marked the latest installment of the TELUS Stampeders Basketball Program.
The Red and White were able to revenge a one-point loss from last season despite falling behind during the second half.
D’Aguilar and Federkeil each made their 2017 debuts and both made impact plays on the hardwood. D’Aguilar brought down an abundance of offensive rebounds and Federkeil dazzled with some spectacular slam dunks including a breakaway 360-degree slam.
Recognized as the players of the game, Finley and Zane of CLMS each took home a prize package from TELUS. Each envelope contained tickets and food vouchers to an upcoming Calgary Roughnecks game, a TELUS calendar, selfie stick and critter.
The starting lineups and play-by-play were provided by Mark Stephen, the voice of the Calgary Stampeders on News Talk 770. Contributing to the fun-filled atmosphere inside the gym was Ralph the Dog and a live DJ. Students from all grade levels lined the court to check out the action between the Stampeders and their school’s boys and girls teams.
On-court photos took place once the game concluded.
On Friday, the squad will be at Springbank Middle School to officially begin the second half of this year’s TELUS Stampeders Basketball Program.
