Cassie Wiebe, a 5’7″ Guard from Carman, MB with a well-rounded average of 5 boards a game, 2 assists and 50% field goal percentage, is very pleased with the 3 game margin the Blazers hold over first place. “We’ve had a really strong start, which is exciting” says Wiebe. “We had a lot of talent coming in for our first years. I think we were all a little nervous about how we would mesh together but we’ve really been picking up on our chemistry which I think has really been going to our advantage”. “There are a lot of really good shooters and shooting teams in this league…so I think anybody can come back at any game at any point because I think the teams in our league are such high-volume shooting teams”.
