On the sports scene from Mr. Callander and Ms. Main:

Congratulations to our badminton players who participated at provincials this weekend.

Kayla Kirkpatrick and Kyle Campion placed 3rd in their pool and then finished off 13th overall. Kallie-Jo Marsh & Mackenzie Poirier did not come home with any wins at provincials but gained some valuable experience for the upcoming years.

The Grades 7 and 8’s had a very successful season of badminton this year. Our doubles teams were Rylee MacKenzie and Eric Halls, Luisa Mendoza and Alora Campbell,  Mason Swith and Shenesa Poirier,  Brooke Poirier and Autumn Kirkpatrick.  Two of our doubles teams Brooke and Autumn, and Mason and Shenesa made it to playoffs in Divisionals but unfortunately lost in the first round. For Singles we had Spencer Duncan, Carlo Reyes,  Jonathan Coulter, Izzy Watt,  Lillie Reaid,  Brooke-lynn Rowand and Jessica Kristof. Brooke-lynn and Jessica both made it to the playoffs and Jessica went on to win 3rd place at Divisionals. She went on to zones winning second place.
