12 Nov Athletics Update
The Grade 8 Girls Volleyball Team were in Mt. Sentinel last week for a play day. Team 1 went undefeated vs. Mt. Sentinel and Grand Forks and tied SHSS. Team 2 went undefeated vs. Grand Forks and SHSS and tied Mt. Sentinel.
The Senior Field Hockey Team capped off their season at the Provincial AA Championships in Victoria. The team went in ranked 6 out of 16 teams. The Hawks placed second in A Pool behind Collingwood School (winners of the Provincials). In pool play they beat Southridge of Surrey 7-0, Lambrick Park of Victoria 4-0, and lost to Collingwood 6-1. The Hawks played their best match of the season in the quarter final. In a tough matchup vs. Little Flower, the Hawks struck first, but late in the game, LFA’s National Team player scored a couple of goals which was the determining factor in the match, with LFA winning 3-1. Playing to salvage 5th place, the Hawks faced SMUS of Victoria. JLC was a stronger team but went down 2-0 early. The Hawks spent the entire second half in the SMUS goal area but could only manage one goal, losing 1-2. In the final game for 7th place, JLC won 2-0 vs. GW Graham of Chilliwack. The Senior Team had a great season and are definitely taking away some good lessons from the Provincials. The team will be strong next season and looking to improve their Provincial results.
