Provincial Champions to be Recognized at Mill Rats Game
Newly crowned provincial champions, the Saint John High JV Boys and the KVHS Girls basketball teams will be recognized at centre court for their achievement at Thursday’s Mill Rats game!
Students from those schools who want to come celebrate their success can get a ticket to the Mill Rats game that night for just $5.
Saint John’s ‘adopted son’ Modibo Diarra has been activated to play for the Saint John Mill Rats against the Orangeville A’s at 7PM at Harbour Station.
The league’s leading shot blocker, Anthony Stover, was placed on Injured Reserve after he sustained a deltoid hematoma on his shoulder during practice. Stover’s prognosis is listed as day to day.
Diarra immigrated from Mali to Canada in 2012 after civil war broke out in his home country, trapping his wife and daughter there. The Mill Rats created a fundraiser called “Africa to Canada” and raised the necessary funds to get them safely to Saint John, where Dibo has settled with his family. He currently works at the new YMCA facility.
The 6’10 Diarra averaged 2.6 points and 2.6 rebounds per game in 2013-14 with 13 minutes of playing time.
Thursday is also momentous as it’s Multicultural Night with a special multicultural dance performance at halftime!
