The Junior and Senior Girls Soccer Teams travelled to Kingston yesterday for a tournament with both teams finishing in second place.  For the Juniors, Bryerson White earned a shutout, while Jaimie Marchant scored an exciting breakaway goal.  Meghan Nydam and Beyonce narrowly missed scoring as each one hit a post.  Roo Thompson was graceful as she ran hard after the ball and came crashing to the turf.  For the seniors, Elisha Miller picked up two shutouts while Rhiannon Kissel and Megan Dick scored two goals each with singles to Sam Gillingham and Abby Berry. Africa Smith was a strong presence on the field all day.  Well done girls! Practices continue next week.

All members of the Badminton Team should return their goggles and racquets to Mrs. Madill or Mr. Muir as soon as possible.  As well those who have uniforms should also return those.

Congratulations to the Junior Boys Hockey team who reeled off 3 consecutive wins yesterday at the St. Peter's Classic to win the championship. Goaltenders Drew Hutchison and Billy Leahy shared a 5 to 0 shutout in game 1 over IE Weldon. Leahy was rock solid, picking up a 3 to 2 overtime win over Norwood in game 2, while Hutchison earned game MVP honours in the championship game, a 3 to 1 victory over Haliburton. The Griffins combined good defensive play with potent offense at the other end. Jarod Mayhew, Charles Cowie and Braden Little led the attack with 2 goals and 1 assist each, while Connor Harnden was the most generous Griffin, picking up 4 helpers. If you check out the team picture, you can easily see why TAS also won the award for the team with the "best flow" in the tournament.
