NewsNick Laping Memorial Basketball Tournament

Come out and cheer on the Varsity and Junior Varsity basketball teams as they compete against some of the top teams from around Manitoba over Feb 13-15.   The teams will compete in both the Eddie Cass and the newly opened Richardson Gyms.    The tournament tips off today at 3:30 pm with the JV team facing the Miles Mac Buckeys, while the Varsity team plays Portage Collegiate at 5:15 pm.

The tournament is named in honour of former St. Paul's teacher, basketball coach, and Director of Advancement Nick Laping.   Nick was a teacher and coach at St Paul's in the late 1960's and early 1970's coaching the basketball teams in those years.   He remained a strong supporter of the school and Athletic teams over his entire life, until his death in 2009.
