·         Yesterday the Jr girls basketball team travelled  to Gaetan Gervais and took home a win by a score of 49-3.  The girls worked well as a team with everyone making positive contributions on defense and offense.  Alicia Edwards, Megan Spiller, Hannah Birtch and Tatum Martino are to be commended for their rebounding.  Top scorers for OT were Elle Gonsalves with 8 points, Kaitlyn Ruetz with 8 points and Sophie Gilbert with 17 points.

·         The Varsity girls field hockey team finished their season yesterday losing in the Halton Finals to Hayden by a score of 1-0 in a very close game.  The team played very well and continued to push the play but they were unable to capitalize on their scoring chances.  The team was led by their captains Alex Levert, Katie McCarter, and Katherine Muschett.  Other graduating seniors are Dila Atalay and goalie Ainsley Morrison.  The coaching staff is proud of the way the team played all season
