The Coaldale Kate Andrews Gaels will reign as the south- west zone "B" boys' basketball champions for the second straight year as they defeated the Stirling Lakers 46-60 in the championship final before a packed house at the University of Lelhbridge Saturday night. The Gaels earned the zone title by besting nine other teams from tlie southwest zone in a four-day single knockout event which got under way Wed- nesday and concluded Satur- day.
