SPORTS

  • THE JGBB team traveled to Nanaimo to compete in the Dover Secondary Provincial Qualifier tournament.            Mr Mossie skillfully navigated the team through snow and heavy rains to get them to their games on time.         Of the three challenging games, the highlight was game #2 against the host school. At the end of the fourth quarter, and with two minutes remaining, the score was 30 all. The Pacers battled hard, and with skillful determination, won 37-31. Congrats to all players for achieving 6th place. Shout-outs to the sharpshooters: Erin, Hilary, Eden, and Abby E, and to the skillful defenders: Fernanda, Peyton, and Sophia. An extra big “ow ow” to the Grade Eight “Abbys” (who were little powerhouses that led surprise attacks and scored important baskets. 
  • SENIOR GIRLS BASKETBALL REPORT: The Pacers made history this weekend as they took home the Police tournament trophy, beating Lambrick Park 85-70. The team knocked down three pointers, closed the ranks on defense, and battled in a physical game for the championship. Such humble, gracious champions! Thank you to all the fans who came out to watch! Mr. Stewart’s dad began the Police association over 50 years ago, and John Lane (who works with our teams) formed the Police tournament out of that association 49 years ago. While we have been in the final a number of times, yesterday was the first time the Pacers have won. By the way, the Pacers also dominated the three-point competition with Addy and Kailey both making the finals and Kailey downing 20 for the win, and Noah won on the boys’ side; it was awesome to have such great representation! All-Star for the tournament: Ella; MVP: Addy. Stay tuned this week as we host Christian Schools! It will be very competitive! We need scorekeepers (sign up on Mr. Stewart’s door); it’s the best seats in the house!
