The Estevan Comprehensive School Elecs senior boys basketball team has punched their ticket for Hoopla next weekend in Saskatoon.
Estevan defeated the host Yorkton Regional team 81-70 Saturday afternoon in the semifinal of the rural regional playdowns, and qualify for the 5A boys Hoopla provincial basketball tournament.
The Elecs still have one game remaining, as they will face Lloydminster Comprehensive at 5 p.m. The game is to determine the rural regional winner and will be for seeding purposes for Hoopla, since both Estevan and Lloydminster are heading to the tournament.
As for the senior girls Elecs, they face Notre Dame at 3 p.m. in Wilcox. The winner of that game will advance to the 4A girls Hoopla competition next weekend.
The Mercury will have more details as they become available.
