The girls placed fifth in league and earned a berth in the ‘AA” Lower Mainland Championships. At the AA LMs, the Tigers beat the #4 team and then ended up defeating the #1 seed in the semi-final to reach the final. The Tigers lost a close final to St. Pat’s but reaching the AA LM final and qualifying for the 2016 AA BC Championships is a great accomplishment for a team which is so young.

At the ‘AA’ BC Championships in Abbotsford, BC (Nov 30-Dec 3), the team ended up fourth in their pool due to the result of a game between two other teams that created a three-way tie. YHS ended up at the bottom of the three-way tie resulting in a very tough draw in the playoff round, and placed 14th overall.

The team also competed at the ISA’s at Crofton House. Although they lost in the bronze medal game to SMUS, the games were close and everyone was on the edge of their seats. Our team has worked hard all season and they have a bright future as they are quite a young team, with three Grade 9s, five Grade 10s and three Grade 11s on the roster this year! A special thank you to our Grade 12s on the team, Erin and Sophia who were role models and tremendous leaders, and thank you to coaches Mike Lodewyks and Noble Kelly.

The Tigers placed fourth at ISA’s after beating Stratford Hall and Shawnigan Lake quite easily (Dec 2-3). However, the semi-final vs Southridge was a tough game as it was the Tigers’ third game of the day. Southridge came out on top and went on to win the tournament. In Saturday’s bronze medal game vs Mulgrave, YHS was close throughout the game, but lost in the end.

Swim Team
Fourteen swimmers, 10 relay teams and two individuals qualified for the BC’s at the Vancouver-Richmond Zone Championships on October 30. They placed fourth at the 2016 BC Championships in Kamloops (Nov 19-20).

Emily, Gr. 10, and Rebecca, Gr. 9, competed at the Cross-Country BC Championships in Kamloops. The course was a tough 4.8km long, two laps of a cross-country ski trail with seven hills, lots of mud, grass and uneven surface. They competed against over 200 runners from all over BC. Emily finished an amazing 13th and Rebecca a strong 72nd. Congratulations, girls!
