G6 Girls Volleyball - A Season of Great Teamwork On and Off the Court!

We ended our strong season of volleyball with a great Play Day at the Richmond Oval on Friday. We were so proud of our Mulgrave team. The girls have learnt so much over the volleyball season.

At the Play Day, it all came together. Our players were moving to the ball, communicating with loud “mines” and doing some strong serves. We even had one player achieve a great overhand serve! There was positive communication and support for one another. Players were tracking the ball at the net and being ready for any tips over. We had some great “three touch” plays and a couple strong hits/spikes! It was very exciting to see all of our hard work come together at the Play Day. Some of the highlights and reflections from our players about the season include our improvement in serving, our communication and teamwork. Players reflected that they enjoyed practicing with the team, meeting new friends and improving their individual skills in serving, setting, communicating and moving to the ball.

Thank you to all our Grade 6 volleyball players. You were a pleasure to coach. Thank you as well to our volleyball parents who supported us in many ways and cheered for us along the way!

JS Athletics Fall Season Closure

AS AUTUMN LEAVES MULGRAVE

Halloween ghosts, goblins, carved pumpkins and candies are already fading memories. The colourful red and gold autumn leaves that decorated the trees are now crunching underfoot. Motorists are rushing to put on winter tires. All this can only mean one thing - the Mulgrave Jr. School fall athletics season has drawn to a close and the winter season is set to begin!

The fall season ended with a flurry of activity. Last week our G6 girls volleyball team closed the first term’s ISEA season with a wonderful winning streak at the Olympic Oval. On October 24th, our G5 girls proved to be terrific hosts as their final games were held on their home courts. Mulgrave hosted the ISEA volleyball meet in which 240 players on 32 teams from 12 schools played friendly games all day on 8 courts in all our gymnasiums. Meanwhile our G5 and 6 boys soccer teams wrapped up their successful seasons with games in sunny Surrey and Maple Ridge. Finally, many of our G3-6 students took part in the ISEA cross-country championships. Our G3 boys team captured third place and several individual Mulgrave runners finished first in their respective categories. Most importantly, all of our athletes in these diverse sports were great ambassadors for Mulgrave at home and away games.

Thank you to all of the following coaches who generously devoted many hours at practices and games helping to refine our players’ skills and teaching them game rules and important concepts of team play and sportsmanship: Ms. Yakachuck, Ms. RB. Ms. Cannon, Ms. Shaw, Ms. Al-Mashouk, Ms. Hill, Ms. McGaw, Ms. Jones, Mr. Gardiner, and Mr. Teran.

Our winter season will begin after the November break. Our athletes will participate in basketball and swimming. Sign-up for the teams is still open, so if any student would like to join a team, please advise Ms. Myring or any Jr. School PHE teacher. The schedules of the exhibition games and Playdays for the various teams are set out below.

We are looking forward to a busy and fun-filled winter season. In the meantime I hope that all students and parents will enjoy a safe and happy November break.

Sr. Swim Team - Zone Championships Recap

The Mulgrave Senior Swim Team had a great effort at Zone Championships last weekend. The team had a top ten finish overall, with three swimmers qualifying for Provincials individually and almost every participant qualifying on a relay team.

Nick H qualified in all his individual races placing on the podium for all three. Vanessa T and Maddie R qualified individually as well as in freestyle and butterfly respectively. The team had many outstanding individual races where they finished just outside of qualifying positions (top 6 in the North Shore - Burnaby zone), but completed their races competitively with best times as a result. The team had nine teams qualify for Provincial Championships. Each team member rose the occasion, as the teams were often racing down to the wire to secure their birth in Provincials. Mr. Lee and Mr. Gardiner were very impressed with the results of the event and look forward to seeing how they compete with the best swim teams in the Province. Thank you to all the parents who volunteered throughout the event, it would not have been as successful without you.
