The Peacock Toilers junior girls’ basketball team started their final game off strong and continued to push the ball up the court with quick momentum. Their quickness and ability to press was enough to hold a 14-point lead at the half-time break and cruised to a 59-38 victory over Vanier. With the win, the Toilers were named the 2013 Moose jaw high school junior girls’ league champions on Thursday evening. “It feels good. We had a good regular season and we finished strong. It is a good way to end it,” said Peacock’s coach Craig McDougall. – March 8, 2013
