The senior boys basketball team from Alexandria’s École secondaire catholique Le Relais opened its 2019-20 PRSSAA season with a 2-2 record before the Christmas break.
Coach Éric Crête tells me that the squad scored wins versus Embrun and Russell, while losses came against Casselman and St. Thomas-Aquinas.
Leading the way offensively is #14 Xavier Gendreau, who is averaging 20 points per game.
The junior edition of les Rapides is 1-3, with the team’s lone win at the expense of Embrun. Losses were to Russell, Casselman, and St. Thomas-Aquinas.
Coach Crête says that 10th grader Jimmy Berry and 9th grader Zeph Lajoie are leading the way scoring-wise. He adds that the record isn’t a bad showing for an inexperienced team of players who collectively had 10 games of experience at the start of the season.
