~~~ Track & Field Recap

This is the first year that our entire Gr. 7-9 student body attended the CISAA Track & Field competition. For many of our students this was the first time they ever tried many of these events. We were commended by other coaches for being out there cheering on teammates as they competed with all their heart and soul. Congratulations to all athletes in Grades 7-9 for continuing to be resilient and relentless during their practices and during the meet.

Evan D. and Rowan A. both qualified for the CISAA Jr. High Championship Meet held on May 30, 2019.
