Junior Tigers Update: November 21, 2019

Both of our Grade 7 teams competed hard in their respective ISEA Volleyball Tournaments on Monday, November 4. The Grade 7A team brought home the silver medal. The team rose to the challenge and lost an incredibly tight final to the Champions from Crofton House. Meanwhile, back at York House School, our Grade 7B team hosted a fantastic 10-team tournament. The girls played their best volleyball of the season and they were thrilled to finish 4th!

Congratulations to all of our students and coaches for an outstanding season of volleyball.

The Swim Team splashed down this week with their first practices of the season. Coach Christine Lee is pumped up about the young Tigers and everyone is looking forward to our first meet of the season, the St. George’s School Elementary Swim Meet, December 6 and 7. Good luck team!
