What a year for YHS Athletics!
After over a one-year ban on inter-school competitive sport due to COVID-19, the 2021-22 season was a return to almost normal. Some teams and some seasons were still impacted by provincial health orders and restrictions but for the most part, we were all thrilled to see a return to competitive sport. On Wednesday, June 8, we held our annual Athletics Year-End Celebration and Awards BBQ. Thank you to all our coaches whose time, dedication and energy make this all happen. Thank you and congratulations to all student-athletes.
MOST VALUABLE TEAMMATE AWARD:
Criteria: in the opinion of their coach(es) demonstrates the character, leadership and skills that contribute to team success that qualifies them as the most valuable teammate. Many will consider this as an MVP award but often a team has an individual who is not the most skilled player, the “all-star” or top point scorer but whose leadership and character, combined with their ability is the most valuable individual to the team (one per team).
