Junior Tigers Update: March 5, 2020

BASKETBALL:
The Grade 7 team played in the 2020 ISEA Grade 7A Basketball Tournament on February 28 at Collingwood School. In the first round game, the Tigers matched up against the Titans of Mulgrave. It was a hotly contested battle in which the Tigers dominated in all facets except the scoreboard. Even though the Tigers put up over 60 shot attempts, the Titans prevailed with a one point victory. Our next game was against Southridge, and the team played some great basketball. Alas, we could not pull out the win, and so our season came to a conclusion. We are very proud of how the team worked this year. Although our record does not reflect how much the girls improved, it is worth mentioning that our strong defensive play was noted by several other coaches. Congratulations to all of the players for their outstanding commitment and effort throughout the season. 

TRACK & FIELD and ULTIMATE
Sign-up for our Term 3 teams is now open. If you want to sign up for either, or both, Track & Field (Grades 3-7) and Ultimate (Grades 5-7) please visit myYHS and look for the sign-up form.

Senior Tigers Update: February 27, 2020

SENIOR TIGERS RETURN TO THE AA BC CHAMPIONSHIPS
This week, the Senior Basketball Tigers will be back in familiar territory. York House Tigers were a fixture at the BCs from 1998-2014 having competed in 17 consecutive BC Championships. Something no other program in BC has achieved. To add to that impressive streak, York House always placed top 8 with one 8th place finish, two 6th place finishes, one 5th place finish, one 3rd place finish, four silver medals, and eight BC Championships. 

The Tigers enter the tournament as the 5th seed in the 16 team draw. We are a young team led by Grade 11 standout Nadeen and a host of talented Grade 10s (including Avery, Finny, Mila, Rain, Kasey, and Sophie) who are no strangers to BC Championships (they won in Grade 8 and placed 9th last year as Juniors). The Senior roster also enjoys the talent and depth by Grade 12s Emma, Akash, Chloe, Jacqueline, Amneet, Natalie, and Maddie.

Game 1 for the Tigers was on Wednesday, February 26 at 1:30 pm vs 12th seeded Holy Cross. Games continue Thursday-Saturday, February 27-29 at the Langley Events Centre (LEC).
