The Holy Trinity Academy's 26th annual Knights Classic Sr. Boys basketball tourney was full of exciting drama over the weekend.

And talk about excitement, after four quarters the game bronze medal game was tied up at 62 sending them into overtime.
Unfortunately, the Knights lost 71-67 just missing out on the bronze medal.
Catholic Central went on to win the gold medal over Medicine Hat High.
The other Okotoks team in the tourney also had an excellent performance in front of hometown fans.
The Foothills Composite Falcons lined up against Archbishop O'Leary in their opening game on Friday night.
It just wasn't meant to be for the Falcons as they lost by only 2 points.

It was the Falcons racking up the points and almost doubling up on Chestermere 109-55 to clinch the consolation final and 5th overall.
