WCSSAA and District 8 team slowly got back into the swing of things last week, although a snow day cut into the number of games that were actually played.
Here's a look back at some of the top individual feats from the week that was. The abbreviated list is reflective of the number of games played.
Zubair Seyed, St. Benedict: The fifth-year point guard (front row, far left) and tournament MVP scored a game-high 22 points to lead the Saints to a 78-49 win over the Bishop Reding Royals of Milton in the championship game of the 29th Saints Invitational senior boys basketball tournament. The two-time reigning MVP of the District 8 senior boys basketball tournament was also MVP of the REB Invitational in Edmonton, Heinbuch Classic in Kitchener and Holy Trinity Tip-off in Oakville.
Liam Hartman, St. David: The Grade 11 defenceman scored three goals as the Celtics downed the Monsignor Doyle Mustangs in District 8 boys hockey league action. The cycling and paintball enthusiast also played midget ‘AAA’ hockey in Waterloo.
Edwin Antwi, Forest Heights: The fifth-year point guard scored 14 points to lead the Trojans to a 51-44 win over the previously undefeated Sir John A. Macdonald Highlanders in WCSSAA senior boys basketball action. He also led his team with 13 points in a 41-34 win over Galt.

Marshall Barrick, Bluevale: The Grade 10 guard continued his strong campaign with 15 points as the Knights dropped a 79-74 decision to the Eastwood Rebels in WCSSAA junior boys basketball league play.
