Junior Tigers Update: March 5, 2020

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. 

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.
