The TAS Track & Field had a great day at COSSA yesterday in Belleville. Rhiannon Kissel won two 2nd place finishes in the Steeplechase and Senior 800 metre run. Ian Cunningham jumped his personal best to win the Senior Pole Vault event, but narrowly missed qualifying for Eastern OFSAA in his long distance Hurdle run. Dakota Lavery had solid runs, qualifying for Eastern OFSAA in both his 3 km run, and Steeplechase. Emma Rutledge jumped her personal best in the Pole Vault to also qualify for Eastern OFSAA. Kasey Hainer narrowly missed qualifying for next week, and ran personal bests in both her runs. Good luck to all athletes at the big Eastern OFSAA Track Meet next Friday in Brockville.

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.
