Keeping it traditional

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The annual Traditional Games Championships, hosted by the Aboriginal Sports Circle of the NWT, was once again held in Yellowknife from Feb. 27 to March 1. Every single school in the NWT was eligible to compete and those athletes who did come took part in a mixture of Dene games and Arctic sports. Some of the competitions included hand games, stick pull, one-foot high kick and kneel hop.
Each team consisted of four boys and four girls and all of the athletes were be between 10 and 12 years of age.
See the next edition of NWT News/North for a recap of the action.

Setting up the field

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The NWT Volleyball Championships in Yellowknife wrapped up on March 1 and it was a true territorial event.
Players were entered from Behchoko, Lutsel K'e, Whati, Deline, Tulita, Norman Wells, Fort Simpson, Fort Providence, Inuvik and Rankin Inlet from Nunavut.
The round-robin for the men's and women's divisions began on Feb. 27 and ran until the next day. The finals for both divisions were scheduled for March 1.
See a future edition of NWT News/North for the lowdown.

Round and round they go

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - Rounding out a busy weekend in the capital was the NWT Speed Skating Championships, which ended on March 1.
Clubs from Hay River, Yellowknife, Fort Smith, Norman Wells, Inuvik and Fort Simpson from the NWT were represented as was the Cambridge Bay Speed Skating Club, which was making its return after a four-year absence.

Victory on the ice

Thompson, Man. The Rankin Rock atom hockey team pulled off a historic win late last month at the Munn Cup tournament in Thompson, Man.
The team downed the Cross Lake Islanders by a score of 9-1 in the final to win the tournament's A division for the first time ever.
The Rock won three games and tied one in the round-robin and coach David Clark said the win in the title contest was the biggest of the tournament for them.

Bumping, setting and spiking - oh, my

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The NWT Volleyball Championships in Yellowknife wrapped up on March 1 and Nunavut was well-represented by one of the stronger communities when it comes to volleyball.

See the next edition of Nunavut News/North for a recap of the team's performance.

Battle on the ice

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - Another Nunavut team was in Yellowknife, this time for the NWT Speed Skating Championships, which happened on Feb. 28 and March 1.
