The St. Benedict Saints are on the road again, this time participating in the David Preston Memorial Tournament at Pine Ridge Secondary School in Pickering.
The Saints, who already have two tournament victories under their belts, opened the tournament Thursday night with a 60-54 win over Pickering High School and will next face Metro Prep on Friday afternoon.
St. Benedict, which opened its District 8 schedule with two easy wins this week, will head to Edmonton for the REB Invitational from Dec. 15-17 and then play in Detroit, Mich., at the end of the month in the Motor City Roundball Classic.
The Saints will then play games at the University of Waterloo in early January against opponents that have yet to be determined and they will host their own tournament Jan. 13 and 14.
Meanwhile, the 12-team Southwood Roundball Classic is underway in Cambridge and features five local entries -- the host Sabres, Eastwood, Galt, Grand River and Cameron Heights.
There is also an eight-team invitational tournament taking place at Resurrection, with the host Phoenix facing Guelph's Our Lady of Lourdes in their opener.
The 16-team SJAM Junior Hoopla tournament is underway at SJAM and Forest Heights with 11 local entries competing -- the Highlanders, Trojans, Resurrection, WCI, Grand River, St. Benedict, St. David, Bluevale, Glenview Park, St. Mary's and Eastwood.
Still with SJAM, the senior Highlanders are in Brampton to compete in the Campion Classic.
