The Entrepreneurship 30 class held its final board meeting for the semester, to close out our semester long business, Cust-A-Mug. During the meeting our President of the Company and Vice-Presidents of Finance, Marketing and Sales, Human Resources, Production, and Technology all contributed their final reports. We had a number of business men and woman from the local community come and join us for our final meeting. These guests provided feedback, questions, and comments on the progress of the business since our initial start up in November. Our final act, in the meeting, was to fulfill a goal that we made at the beginning of our venture and incorporated it into our financial plans as we progressed as a company. This goal was to give back to our local community by donating a portion of our sales through a donation to Canadian Tire's Jumpstart foundation. Jumpstart allows local children to access financial support to play in the sports that they are passionate about. Many of our company members have been/are on teams and they really wanted to support a local charity that would help children be able to pursue their passion. We were very excited to present Peter Puglia, owner of Moose Jaw Canadian Tire, with a check for $302.00 to Jumpstart which he then matched! In total, $604.00 dollars will go to Jumpstart and allow 6 young, local athletes to enjoy the sport that they are involved in. CONGRATULATIONS to Cust-A-Mug on such a successful venture! We are all proud of your accomplishments and learning in our "Learning by Living" class!
Peacock Wins Girls Invitational Tournament
The Peacock Toilers wanted to measure their progress over the course of the Moose Jaw Senior Girls Invitational Basketball Tournament.
Suffice it to say that they’re ahead of the curve right now.
The Toilers beat Meadow Lake Carpenter 67-54 to claim the tournament title Saturday at home.
“We had a really good weekend,” said Peacock coach Renee Verge. “We were expecting this to be a really good weekend of growth for us with four games over the three days.
“Our focus for the weekend, after Thursday, was really to focus on our defence. We really saw that side of our game take a huge step forward.”
After allowing 65 points to Meath Park in the opener, the Toilers allowed an average of 41.3 points-per-game the rest of the tournament.
Verge was very happy with the progress the team made in working together, but felt there was plenty of progress still to be made in the coming months.
“We’ve still got two hard months ahead of us,” she said. “We’ve set some goals for ourselves and there’s a lot of little stepping stones ahead to achieve those goals. Certainly from what we saw this weekend we do have the pieces. The trick to basketball is staying healthy and to keep improving.
“We have a lot of room to take some big steps forward.”
Meadow Lake gave Peacock a good battle in the final. Peacock led 39-33 at the half and both teams got into foul trouble in the second half as they battled in the paint.
Meadow Lake’s Maddie Oystrick got into foul trouble and eventually fouled as did Peacock’s Amy Williams and Caitlyn Kitts.
Prior to signing a contract with budding Canadian modeling agency Numa in August, 16-year-old Justine Farago hadn’t considered doing modelling.
“It’s been really amazing. It was never something that had ever crossed my mind to do before, but then once I started, it’s just a confidence builder,” said Farago who is a student at Peacock Collegiate in Moose Jaw. Numa scouted her in May.
“It’s so much fun doing it and I love the team and everything. It’s just great.”
She will be competing to win the title of Miss Teen Canada this year. The first competition is the provincial competition to be Miss Teen Saskatchewan, to be held Feb. 24 in Saskatoon.
Peacock hasn’t played many games yet this season, but they looked like a well-oiled machine as they beat Central 76-32 in senior girls high school basketball play.
In the other senior girls game Tuesday, Vanier beat Assiniboia 50-43 in overtime.
Central beat Peacock 85-73 in senior boys action.
Toilers 76 Cyclones 32
The Toilers remained unbeaten in league play and are getting ready for a busy weekend of basketball when they and Central co-host the Moose Jaw Invitational Senior Girls Basketball Tournament.
“I think we’re just trying to continue to build,” said Toilers coach Renee Verge. “This is only our sixth game of the season. Many of the teams that will be at our tournament this weekend will be in the twenties by now.
“For us, every time we hit the court in a game situation we’re getting better because we haven’t played that much yet.”
