(Fort McMurray—Oct. 4, 2018) Keyano College is proud to announce it will host the 2019 Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) Women’s Basketball Conference Championships on February 28-March 2.
More than 100 athletes representing the best college women’s basketball teams in the province will be coming to Fort McMurray to battle for the championship.
“We are extremely pleased to host an event that highlights Keyano College’s facilities and the larger Wood Buffalo region to people from across the province and beyond,” said Dr. Trent Keough, Keyano College President and CEO.
This is the first time in its history the college has hosted a women’s ACAC championship.
"Hosting an ACAC Championship is an honor and it is a particular privilege for us to host the 2019 ACAC Women’s Basketball Conference Championships this season,” said Jonathan Lambert, Athletic Director of Sport & Student Wellness. “It will be an opportunity for the community to experience some of the best women’s college basketball offered in Alberta.”
Since joining the ACAC in 2010, the Huskies Women’s Basketball program has grown and the team has tasted success, notably in the past few years. The team had its best season in 2017-18, finishing 1st in the North Division with an 18-6 win-loss record. As well, the team was ranked #4 in the country, marking the first time our women’s basketball team has been ranked nationally.
With the core of last year’s team returning for the 2018-19 season, coaches are confident the Huskies will be competitive at the tournament.
All tournament games will be played on the Canadian Natural Resources Limited Gymnasium at the Syncrude Sport and Wellness Centre.
