The Clipper Men's basketball team secured two victories over Alumni Weekend.
Briercrest College and Seminary's alumni team made it tough, but the Clipper Menís basketball team walked away from the annual Clipper Alumni Weekend, which took place September 18-19 in Caronport, with both their matches.

Coach Gene Wolverton was impressed with his team's effort and thought that their conditioning was a factor in their wins over the weekend.

ďThe team was using their speed throughout the weekend, and it was their speed that ended up tiring out the much bigger alumni team," he said.

Sixty Clipper alumni came to campus for a golf tournament, a steak and lobster banquet, and hockey, volleyball, and basketball games against the present Clipper teams.

Briercrest College and Seminary looks forward to some more exhibition play in a tournament in Medicine Hat, where they'll take on Lakeland College, Augustana, and Olds.
