The Grade 5 basketball team participated in the ISEA Basketball Playdays on St. Valentine’s day this week. With 31 students from YHS, the Tigers were well represented in both quantity and quality. To maximize everyone’s time on the court, our coaches divided the students into four teams. Each team played 4-5 games, and there were plenty of tired Tigers by the end of the day. Some games were won, some games were lost, but more importantly, the Tigers gained a lot of basketball experience that will serve them well next year in Grade 6. Congratulations to Mulgrave School for hosting such a big event (226 students, 30 coaches). Finally, a huge THANK YOU to Ms. Kanavos and Ms. Anthony for their time and expertise in leading the team.
The Grade 6 basketball team participated in the ISEA Playday on Wednesday, February 15 at the Richmond Olympic Oval. The Tigers were very excited to play multiple games in one day. Although there are only 14 players in this group, they are very keen and, no surprise, pretty good at basketball. It has been a pleasure watching this team work hard on their fundamental skills and team play. Congratulations on an excellent season and of course, a big THANK YOU to Mr. Bester for his continued leadership and coaching acumen.
Both Grade 7 teams had a good week of practice and are looking forward to their ISEA Tournaments next week.
The Swim Team will be participating in the ISEA Swimming Championships on Thursday, February 16. The team is a top contender for the title of Girls’ Team Champion, but results will not be finalized until later in the week. We look forward to bringing you some great results next week.
