Gr. 8 and Jr. Volleyball Teams take home silver at ISA’s

Both the Jr. and the Bantam (Gr. 8) Volleyball teams took home silver medals at their respective ISA Championships.  The Jr.’s headed to Brentwood College where they dominated the competitiion until they ran into a very strong Collingwood team.  The Tigers played well and won silver medals.  Meanwhile, York House played host to the Bantam ISA’s and too played excellent volleyball all day.  The final saw YHS taking on CHS. These two teams were clearly playing a higher level of volleyball than other teams.  CHS came out on top in the final. These two teams are evenly matched and later int he week at a league game, our Tigers beat CHS 2-0.  A good rivalry in the making.  Congratulations to both teams and their coaches, Mr. Bester and Mr. Ruse and Shannon Coutts.

Our Sr. Tigers Swim Team entered the Vancouver-Richmond Zone Championship Meet as the favourites and did not disappoint.  Led by grade 12 star, Laura Sze, the Tigers dominated the event easily winning the girl’s title and placing 2nd overall to St. George’s.  York House qualified 17 swimmers to compete at the BC Aquatics Championship to be held in Nanaimo, BC, November 19-20.  York House finished 2nd overall on the girls side last year and this year hope to equal that mark and perhaps take home the highy coveted BCSS Provincial Championship.
