Congratulations to both our Boys’ and Girls’ Senior Basketball teams, who have won their respective Capital Region Division 3 Banners.
Our boys demonstrated teamwork, passion, and skill during a dominant Division finale over Armbrae Academy. Special mention goes to Grade 12 student Simon Tector, who for the last three years had led the team to numerous victories, including this one. Big thanks to coaches Allan April, Brent Martindale, and Jamie Smith for nurturing these boys into such a dominant force, which they also proved last week with a big win in an exhibition game over a strong Division 2 team.
Then it was the girls’ turn to impress. After some disappointing losses earlier in the year, the girls showed their tremendous growth and grit with a win over Armbrae Academy for the Banner. Shout out to Grade 11 students Tua MacNeil and Claire Rankin who both had big games for the Sharks. Kudos to coaches Mr. Antwon Christian and Ms. Claire Reardon for their leadership guiding this year’s team and instilling in them such a fighting spirit.
Our student-athletes and our coaches should be very proud of their efforts and accomplishments this year. We certainly are!
