The Grade 7 team had their final practice of the year on Thursday morning, and we are fully prepared to play Mulgrave School in the first round of the 2020 ISEA Grade 7A Basketball Tournament on February 28 at Collingwood School (Wentworth Campus). When the Tigers and Titans met last, the game ended in a tie, so we are expecting another close battle. The winner of this game will play the top-seeded CHS Falcons in an effort to pull off a massive upset. We will have a full recap of the tournament next week.
On Thursday, February 20, the Swim Team competed in the ISEA Swimming Championships and finished 2nd overall! This is a very impressive result given that we had only three swimmers in each of Grade 3 and Grade 7, not even enough to make a relay team. Overall, our individual results were fantastic, and our Grades 4, 5 and 6 relay teams performed very well. The team worked very hard to achieve personal bests results and have fun, and Head Coach Christine Lee (‘16) thinks the team met both goals easily.
Speaking of Christine, we owe her a big THANK YOU for leading our swimming team with enthusiasm and passion. We are very lucky to have Christine as our Head Coach. Another thank you to Carmelita Carlberg-Nangle and our student coaches Victoria (‘20), Devon (‘21), Vivian (‘21), Monique (‘22) and Tristan (‘24). Coaches are a vital part of any athlete’s journey and we are fortunate to have so many good coaches with our swim team. Finally, congratulations to all of the student-athletes who met the challenges and commitments of this past season. The journey matters, and we are very proud of how well you all represented York House School.
