Sports

A HUGE congratulations to our senior girls’ volleyball team for their EPIC battle at SOSSA yesterday.  The girls faced a tough team from St. Francis during the first round and came out victorious.  During the finals, we faced a strong serving team from Dundas Valley and we battled a point for point game, but unfortunately could not pull out ahead in time.   Although this meant a second-place finish for our mighty Cyclones, and the potential second entry to OFSAA, we faced a challenge match late in the day - pushing our girls to a 3-game battle.  The girls played with heart and grit - but the Eden Flyers were able to squeak by us, ending our season.  The girls represented our school in a positive and sportsmanlike manner, proving what it really means to wear that Cyclone jersey. 

Thank you to all the students, teachers and administration for the their encouragement and support for the Sr. Boys Basketball team yesterday and throughout the season. Congratulation to the Sr. Boys Basketball team on a competing hard yesterday in the SOSSA finals game against St. Francis, unfortunately we finished a little short losing 66-55.
