Playing hoops & dunking donuts

On February 10th Valemount RCMP took on the Valemount Secondary School basketball teams in a friendly but surprisingly competitive game of hoops. The RCMP team was supplemented with elite athletic high school teachers resulting in what some fans described as “a really stacked team.” Constable Rob Reimer was voted by his peers as the game MVP for fearlessly out-rebounding the opposition (who, in all fairness, did average 20 inches shorter and 140 pounds lighter). School principal Derrick Shaw sat in as the RCMP coach. He was asked to draw up some plays, but mostly just drew pictures of donuts and Tim Horton’s coffee cups on his whiteboard. Somewhat of a stereotype, but not completely wrong either. All in all, the game was a success and both sides are looking forward to a rematch in the spring. /SUBMITTED
