Track & Field Exhibition and Preliminary Meets

In our first year of having a Mulgrave Titan's Track and Field Team, thirty eight students competed on the Team at the six Exhibition and Preliminary Meets. These events were used a qualifying heats for Zones that took place on Tuesday. To qualify, athletes had to place in the top 8 for sprints or 12 for middle distance and field events. It was exciting to have twenty athletes qualify for Zones in sprints, middle distance and field events. Sadly the Bantam and some Junior athletes were unable to represent the school due to GeX service trips. However, of the twelve Grade 10 and 11 students who participated in the Zones, three qualified for Provincials as individuals and a further three to make up the speedy Junior Boys 4 x 400m relay team.

First to qualify for Provincials was Madi R in the Senior Girls 400m. Augustin W qualified next in the Junior Boys 800m and Florian S in the Senior Boys shot put. The Junior Boys 4 x 400m relay team comprised of Josh C, Augustin W, Jose V, and Mark H will also compete at the Provincial competition May 31st to June 2nd. We wish them every success!

Grade 5 Girls Soccer

Tuesday, May 15th the Grade 5 Girls soccer team participated in the annual ISEA Play Day tournament hosted at Southridge School. In total the girls played 4 games against Collingwood 1 & 2, Fraser Academy & West Point Grey . The girls won their first game, tied the second & won the third game. In our last game the opposing team did not have enough players, so we played a mixed team game. In practises leading up to the tournament, the team focused on defensive awareness, ball control, passing to open space, shooting and defensive techniques. During the series of exhibition games, the girls improved in all areas. Kira L was our top scorer, showing great bursts of speed, shooting and dribbling. Elena C demonstrated great commitment to the team by being a leader in the defense, making great plays and taking great shots. Leandra G-M progressed dramatically throughout the season with her offensive awareness, footwork and shooting. Leandra is to be commended for her commitment to the team for attending every single practice and game. Way to go, Leandra! Coco M was a stellar goalie all season long, making timely saves and effectively communicating with her teammates. Erica P had great offensive moments, scoring many goals and getting shots on net every time she was on the field. Deanna N displayed a great level of athleticism on the field and impressed the coaches by her willingness to play any position at any given time. Eva G has great natural soccer instincts, consistently putting herself in great scoring and defensive positions on the field. Sophie Y showcased her superb defense by making great tackles and passes. Grace W is to be commended for her effort she made every time she was on the field. Grace also made great runs, passes and tackles. Jane H demonstrated great sportsmanship and enthusiasm for the game every time she was on the field. Martina R improved her skills during the exhibition games. All girls put forth an admirable effort all season long, making their coaches very proud. Congratulations to our Grade 5 Girls Soccer team!

Grade 5/6 Rugby

The Grade 5/6 Rugby finished their season on a high note on Tuesday at Klahanie Park. The team put together their best run of play against Collingwood and St. George's, maintaining good possession of the ball, strong transition game, and improved defensive awareness, positioning, and tackling. The team, buoyed by our Grade 6 leaders, played with great energy and intensity. Our Grade 4 and 5's steadily developed throughout the season and demonstrated enhanced confidence in their ability to contribute to the team. It was great to see our substitutes were excitedly waiting to get in the game, watching the game intensely, and cheering on their teammates. While we fell short of victory, the team has may reasons to hold their heads high. The coaches were more than pleased with the development the team showed throughout the season and look forward to seeing further growth next year.


Grade 6/7 Girls' Soccer

The Grade 6/7 girls' soccer season came to a close with the Play Day at Southridge School on Tuesday, May 15th. The girls had a great time, worked hard and maintained a smile on their faces throughout the tournament.

Their first game was against West Point Grey Academy (WPGA). This game was very exciting as the scoring went back and forth between teams. WPGA struck first, but it only took a couple of minutes to tie the game up. The play went back and forth until the last five minutes of the match where WPGA scored twice just before the end of the match. The girls demonstrated great passing in the box that led to a couple of our goals. During the match, one of our players got injured and we were to play with one girl short for the rest of the tournament. This made it tough for our girls as they had to play the rest of the tournament without a substitute.

Our team rallied and regained their strength for the next opponent, Collingwood School. They have been one of our toughest competition this season and the girls got mentally prepared for this challenge. Collingwood took control early and had scored first. Mulgrave bounced back and put lots of pressure on the ball and maintained control most of the second half. Many shots were taken, but only one made it into the net. Even though we were showing fatigue, the girls persevered and finished the match with their heads held high.

Unfortunately, we did not finish as we hoped, but Ms. Jones and I left impressed with the development of all the athletes that came out this season and how they always played their hearts out. We saw bonds between teammates develop, bringing the team together, making us stronger on and off the field. Well done girls!!!

BADMINTON:

The Jr. Badminton team finished 2nd on the North Shore this week! The juniors stunned the favourites (West Vancouver) with an 8-3 win in the semi-final and came up just short to Sentinel in the Championship game, 6 to 5.

Meanwhile, the Sr. Badminton team played with incredible heart and lost in the quarter-finals to Bodwell 7-4, amazing considering they were without the G12s.

GO TITANS GO!!!
