The U13 Surge boys basketball team opened their season at the Premier Prairie Classic in Moose Jaw on May 17-19.

Jackson scored 38 points, followed by 14 from Shea, and 11 from Alex Liu.

They dropped their final game 86-46 to XYE Elite.

 “XYE was very good at scoring in transition and near the rim. We had a more competitive second half after adjusting our defense,” noted coach Adam Jackson.
