The senior Sentinels squad swept a best-of-three series against Clarenville High School to win the School Sports Newfoundland and Labrador AAA regional qualifier. Carbonear won the first game in Clarenville Monday, March 4, by a score of 60-30 and reproduced that result with an identical 60-30 score in a home game played Wednesday, March 6.
