Interhouse Swimming Carnival

On February 16, St Norbert College Senior Boys Basketball commenced the first game of the ACC Championship against Corpus Christi.
The game was a close one throughout with both teams sharing the lead throughout the first half. It wasn’t until a time-out from the Canons late the third quarter to settle Corpus Christi’s run and change the tempo in the game. The Canon's defense sparked the run with the “General” Jesse Overmars leading the way and with steals from Blade Sartorelli, Ethan Port-Louis and Aaron Weldeslassie St Norbert College started to gain momentum. Our big men cleaned up the boards with Caleb Yende-Emoko, Armeyas Dejene-Teklu and Bob Watson making sure St Norbert College never gave up second chance points.
Ethan Port-Louis went on a 11-0 run in the fourth quarter which ballooned the margin out to 15 points and Corpus Christi College were unable to reel in the Canons as they went on to victory 60-45.
Next game is against Lumen Christi College.
