Alberta Cardston Cougars

Coming from Alberta, the Cardston Cougars will be bringing a fierce game to the 66th LIT! Last year, they finished first in their league and second provincially and were champions of their own tournament in December of 2017. The Cardston Cougars won LIT in 1996, and will be bringing their best again this year. The team and coaches focus heavily on leadership and building quality characteristics of respect, communication, and hard work to advance their team’s skills and placement in their regional league. Their undeniable achievements come from hours upon hours a week of working hard in games and practices, as well as treating teammates and others off the court respectfully to maintain a strong balance of friendship and sportsmanship. Ty Lewis, a grade twelve player on the team, was awarded MVP of the Cougar
Classic Tournament in December, and grade eleven, Taylor Barfuss, won All Star player in the Raymond Sugar Bowl. This team is incredibly strong, well-coached, guided by teamwork and connectedness among the players and will be exciting to watch this year!
