This past week, ND was sport filled, between curling, basketball, volleyball, indoor track and field practices, and hockey. Many of these teams have been practicing for a few weeks now and started to compete last week. On Wed., Nov. 28, the Senior and Junior boys’ basketball teams played games against La Citadelle, which we hosted. The Seniors won their game 45-23, but sadly the Juniors lost their game on their home court. Today, Dec. 5, the boys’ hockey team will be playing their first game. Good luck boys! Also, today, the girls’ Junior and Senior volleyball teams are travelling to Seaway High School to play against St. Joe’s and l’Heritage. Best of luck to both teams! Tomorrow, Dec. 6, and Fri., Dec, 7, the boys’ and both of our girls’ curling teams are competing in the Gore competition. Once again, we wish all 3 teams luck!
That’s not where our sports end, we had two in school games, and everyone had a blast! On Tues., Nov. 27, North Dundas had a Student VS Staff volleyball game. Sadly, for the students, the staff won. This was the staff’s redemption from the loss they took after the Student vs Staff baseball game in October. ND also hosted a Grade 7/8 floor hockey tournament on Fri., Nov. 30, which was a fun day for everyone. Spectators and players enjoyed the games!
On Wed., Nov 28 some members of Mr. Bougie’s construction class travelled to Ottawa to compete in the Secondary Cardboard Boat Races. Sadly, neither the Christmas team, consisting of Ella Holmes, Ally Beblow, Keira Bartlett, and Emma Acres, or the Beach Boys team consisting of Jack Link, Alia McNaughton, Chayce Hyndman, and Aaliyah Hutt earned medals. It was still a great day for all, and a great experience. The next day, Thurs., Nov, 29, the Improv team travelled to Tagwi to compete in their first competition. So far, they are in first, but they still have a few more competitions. Great job team!
Don’t forget to encourage your child to take an angel off the angel tree. There’s now a tree in our high school division as well, started by our wellness team. This tree will work alongside NDDHS’s tree to help provide the Lion’s club with gifts for community members. Please help make a difference this Christmas!
