The 1973 edition of the Spartans went undefeated all year.  Led by Coach Gary Grubert, the Spartans participated in numerous tournaments both in Province and out and advanced to the Provincials with an undefeated record.  The Spartans featured many players who went on to outstanding University careers, including Martin Riley (U of M) who captained the Canadian Olympic Team, Bob Magel (U of W) and Dan Kinaschuk (U of W), Ben Szymkow (BU), Randy Prokopanko (U of M), Les Sikora (U of W).  Other team members were Gary Rozak, Frank Douglas, Marshall Rosner, Glen Zelenewich, Ernie Archia, Brian Whitney, Terry Symonds, Tom Mokry (manager), Russell Horbal (manager) and Mr. Gary Grubert (coach). No team has gone undefeated since and many of the players have gone on to teach and coach in Winnipeg and other areas.
