CROSS-COUNTRY TEAM AT PROVINCIALS
Congratulations to our Cross-Country Team runners who competed at the BC Championships on Saturday at Clearbrook Park in Abbotsford. The weather was amazing and our girls ran hard. Olivia, Gr. 12, ran in the senior race placing 75th in a field of hundreds while Tori, Gr. 9; Finny, Gr. 10; Tasha, Gr. 9; Sabrina, Gr. 10, and Tania, Gr. 8, all ran hard competing in the junior race. YHS qualified two other runners who were unable to run due to schedule conflicts. Congratulations to all the girls on a terrific season and thank you to coaches Mr. J. Emerson, Ms. M. Chang, and Ms. M. McInnis.
Congratulations and thank you to our graduating volleyball senior girls Maggie, Akash, Natalie, and Emily. The girls played their final home game of their high school career on Monday, November 4. The Tigers hosted Notre Dame in front of a crowd of family, friends, classmates, and staff. YHS started out slow and was down 0-2. It looked like a quick evening but then the Tigers woke up and went on to win three straight games 25-16, 25-14, and 15-6 to win three games to two and claim second place in our LMISSAA league.
VOLLEYBALL TEAM PLAYOFFS
Good luck this week to our Grade 8 Volleyball Team competing in league finals on Thursday at St. Pat’s. Also, good luck to our Junior Tigers competing at league finals Thursday at Notre Dame. When looking at the combined success of our Grade 8, Junior, and Senior Teams this year, 2019 has been one of the most successful volleyball seasons on record at YHS.
