Coaching Thank You for Spring 2018

June 21, 2018

It is hard to believe but the year is coming to an end. This means the last session of the sports have come to an end as well. Success has taken place again on local and provincial levels. This is mainly due to all the people who put the time and effort in to our student athletes. The last two sports are Badminton and Track & Field. Although they are still team sports they have more of an individual spin. I also know that in track that sometimes other people work with the athletes besides the school coach. Have a well deserved summer!
