Tigers Enjoying a Banner Year

YHS enjoying the best ever season in high school sports

The highly coveted title of Provincial Champion is something that doesn’t come along every year. To win a BCSS sanctioned Provincial Championship is a major highlight for any BC school.

Since 1999, York House had enjoyed many BCSS sanctioned titles which included 7 in AA basketball and 2 for alpine skiing.

Nine ‘blue banners’ in 12 years is a great feat.

The 2010-11 school year is one for the record books at YHS with three Tigers teams winning BCSS sanctioned Provincial Championships in one school year.

November 2010: Tigers Swim team took home the Girls Aquatics Championship.

March 2011: Tigers Alpine Ski Team won our 3rd Skiing Championship.

March 2011: Tigers Varsity Basketball Team won the AA basketball championship for our school’s 8th AA basketball title.

It has already been an amazing year for Tigers teams as it is doubtful any school in BC, has won three BCSS championships this year.

Two girls, Ava and Christina, both Grade 11’s, were a part of two winning teams; the Swim Team and Sr. Basketball Team.

With spring sports still ongoing, the Tigers do have a good shot at the BC Ultimate title but ultimate Frisbee is not a BCSS sanctioned sport as not enough schools in BC compete in ultimate. Therefore, if the Tigers ultimate team does win, we can celebrate a 4th BC championship but it will not be a BCSS sanctioned event and not come with the highly coveted ‘blue banner.’
