Tigers Ski Team Provincial Champions

YHS Ski Team - BCSS Provincial ChampionsYork House Ski Team have just won the 2010-11 Provincial Championships in Kimberley, BC. For the first time ever, York House has won 2 BCSS Provincial Championships in one school year (our swim team took home the championship banner in November).

The girls were amazing and I can’t say enough about their skiing, behaviour and maturity (hard to believe with all grade 8’s except for 2 grade 9s!). The girls managed to bring the banner home after 2 years away. They defeated a very talented Seacove team by 10 points (quite a lot in skiing) and got their revenge for a 1 point loss last year.

Our snowboarders had a challenging championship as they were dealing with a whole lot of new experiences and nerves. Both Silvia and Joanna learned a lot and despite being very inexperienced, managed to represent the school very well and have a bright future ahead of them.

Thanks to all of you for your support of the team and the girls. A large part of the team is now racing for their club team in Panorama – they will be tired when they return!

Great results from this weekend…

On another wet miserable day, our ski team again swept the competition, this time led by Siobhan and Amelia. On the snowboard side, the girls had a good showing, especially Sylvia who finished 1st.

In basketball, the Junior Tigers did well in Kamloops losing a close game in the final.

The Senior Tigers beat BC’s #3 AAA team (SKSS) in the final 60-50, despite SKSS having a 6’4″ star! Laura was named MVP and Alisha an All-Star. The Tigers beat AA#6 Sahali and AA#4 NVSS enroute to the final.
