Falcons stretch their wings and fly high GREGGCHAMBERLAIN year,” he said. “We have a solid starting five. Our point guard, Blake Rennick, he controls our team well.”

The Falcons’ leading scorer this season was Chris MacDonald. He graduated his fi- nal term in December and now Joe Mariutti steps up as the top shooter for SFX as the Falcons head into the qualifier. On the Falcons defence are Johnny Fid- aoui and James McDonald. “Johnny’s quick and he’s aggressive,” said Coach Stoqua. “And James, he’s our big body in the middle. We’ll be leaning on him for his rebounds.” Stoqua noted that hosting the qualifier is a significant opportunity for both the Fal- cons and SFX. “We’re looking at this tournament as a great way to showcase our school and our community.”

HAMMOND | The SFX Falcons are unde- feated on their way to the top. The Hammond high school basketball team is in top form this season with a sec- ond consecutive championship title in the Prescott-Russell league. Now the Falcons are sharpening their skills and talons for a shot at a provincial trophy when they host the Eastern Ontario qualifier tournament for single-A high school basketball starting Feb. 21. “Our guys are really excited,” said Coach Scott Stoqua. Saint Francis Xavier Catholic High School’s senior boys basketball squad finished first overall in league play this season. They cleared their schedule in the Prescott-Rus- sell league undefeated in six games then won the mid-December playoffs again un- defeated after eight sessions on the court. This marks the Falcons’ second league championship season as they prepare now for the regional qualifier tournament for the Ontario Federation of Secondary School Athletics Associations ( OFSAA). The two-day tournament will feature the Falcons host team along with five other schools in the Eastern Ontario sector. Ren- frew’s St. Joseph’s is the only other confir- mation so far as the other regional leagues are still in playoff competitions. The past four seasons have seen the Fal- cons qualify for the Eastern regionals. Last year they qualified for OFSAA. Coach Sto- qua is optimistic about the team’s chances of earning a berth at this year’s provincials. “We’ve beaten some double-A teams this VANKLEEK HILL | Le Match des Étoiles de la Ligue de hockey junior de la Capitale nationale aura lieu le 17 février, à 20 h, alors que les Cougars seront les hôtes au Centre communautaire de Vankleek Hill.
