Cougars emerge with spoils at LCI meet By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer "Santa Claus visits Catholic Central Cougars twice." The Catholic Central Cougars received their second big present from the jolly fat man in the red suit this season. Saturday night the Cougars bounced the LCI Rams 68-50 and carted home the fifth annual Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Invitational Basketball Tournament championship title before a standing - room-only crowd. It's been a most rewarding year for coach Dean Dahl as the Cougars added this title to their Southern Alberta "A" Boys' football league title won earlier in the year. "I'm really pleased about the way things have been going so far this season," commented Dahl "The boys put out a 100 per cent effort during the football season and I hope they'll do the same for basketball," added Dahl. If the two-day tourney' was any indication, the C o u g ars will be out on the floor giving it all they've got this season. In their bid for the championship title, the Cougars trailed their opponents at one point in each of their games. En route to victory they dropped Edmonton Ross - Shep-ard 59-49 in the tourney opener t r a i 1 i ng 27-25 at half-time.

The Comets took an early 20-9 first quarter lead and held on for a 35-28 lead at half-time.
