Outdoor Leadership Class (OLP) students received instruction from B!KE and Green-up on bike maintenance, repair and safety as they prepare to begin riding to Trent University for the next month during their fitness and wall-climbing unit.

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.
