Senior Tigers Update: February 22, 2018

GRADE 8 TIGERS WIN LMISSGBA CHAMPIONSHIP
Our Grade 8 Tigers completed their undefeated league season on February 15, with a hard-fought 37-23 win over Notre Dame in the LMISSGBA final game. Notre Dame (ND) is a tough, athletic team who competed hard. The game was close for most of the first half with YHS holding an 18-13 lead. The Tigers took control in the second half outscoring ND 19-10 en route to a 37-23 win. YHS was led by Finley with 15 points and Avery with 11 points. York House qualifies for the 2018 Grade 8 BC Championships, March 1-3. The last time YHS won our LMISSGBA league title and attended the BC Championships was 2014, when our current Grade 12 class placed a YHS best ever 4th in BC.

GRADE 8 TIGERS WIN ISA CHAMPIONSHIP
The Grade 8 Tigers followed up their league title by demolishing the competition at the ISAs on the weekend. YHS played a strong and aggressive Mulgrave Team in the final. The game was relatively close but the Tigers played a great, composed second half and put the Titans away with a convincing 56-22 win! These Tigers get to add a gold ISA medal to the bronze ISA medal they won at Junior ISAs.

SKI TEAM GETS READY FOR THE BCs
This is an off week for our skiers and snowboarders. A perfect break to get inspired by watching the Olympics as they prepare for the 2018 BC Alpine Championships, March 5-6-7 at Sun Peaks Resort.

SENIOR BASKETBALL SEASON ENDS AT LOWER MAINLANDS
The Senior Tigers season ended at the AA Lower Mainland Championships. The Tigers opened the tournament with a solid win over Collingwood. They then lost a hard fought game to the #1 seed Britannia. YHS then had to play Little Flower Academy (LFA) in a must-win game. Up 52-51 early in the 4th, the undersized Tigers couldn’t stop LFA’s 6’1 post and lost 69-60. A strong season overall for our girls but they came just a couple wins short of qualifying for the BCs. Special congrats to our graduating seniors, Kyra, Kristen, and Maggie.
