Senior Tigers Update: April 26, 2018

SOCCER TEAMS TAKE SILVER AT ISAs

Our Junior and Senior Soccer Team played at the ISAs on April 19-20 out at Southridge School. Both teams did very well reaching their respective championship games and both winning silver medals.

The Senior Team started the tournament with a hard-fought 3-1 win over West Point Grey Academy (WPGA). In game two, the Tigers cruised to victory with a 7-0 win. The Tigers then defeated Glenlyon Norfolk School (GNS) 4-0 to reach the final. In the final, the tired Tigers battled hard against Southridge who won gold with a 2-0 victory. Congratulations to the girls and the coaches.

Our Junior Tigers also performed very well winning both pool games vs Southridge and Brentwood College. The Junior Tigers reached the final but ran into a very strong Collingwood team. Congratulations to the girls and to the coaches.
