VARSITY FIELD HOCKEY PLACES 7TH AT ‘AA’ BCs: Congratulations to our Varsity Field Hockey Team for an excellent season and strong finish at AA BCs. While our goal was top 4, we lost a hard fought battle to Shawnigan Lake (SLS) in the quarter-final. That loss put the Tigers in a battle for 5th place but we suffered a hard-fought 1-0 loss to Little Flower Academy (LFA) due to an upset earlier in the tournament. The Tigers then faced South Kamloops. Overall, the girls dominated Brentwood, North Delta, and South Kamloops all with 5-0 scores. They lost 3-1 to Collingwood, the eventual champion, 2-1 to SLS and 1-0 to LFA. The girls competed hard and we celebrate their effort, commitment, and achievement. Special congrats and thank you to all of our graduating field hockey players. Many Grade 12s play field hockey. These girls have helped elevate our Varsity and Senior Team to new heights over these past few seasons. Thank you! Sam, Isabel, Sydney, Matteya, Hannah, Olivia, Ava, Mira, Stephanie, and Kathryn.
