The 2014 girls field hockey team had a phenomenal season. From defeating some of the strongest teams to being one win away from provincials!
The girls played very hard this season and it showed! Beating KVHS (3-1) for the first time in eight years and other strong opponents HVHS (3-1)! The hounds also had 2 of the top 5 scorers in the district with Abby Morgan having a total of 12 goals this season and Claire Martin with 9! The girls were very close to provincials this year and are ready for next year!
A big thanks to coaches Ms. Wilton, Ms.Desmond and Ms.Leslie who put in a lot of time and hard work to make this team the shining stars they are! GO HOUNDS!!
Monday, Nov. 10th, the staff and students of SJHS came together to remember those from our school and throughout our nation, who have served, fought, and died on our behalf of Canada, defending the values we cherish every day.
The service was a compilation of music, readings, and video presentations, with the service convener being Grade 12 student, Sam Landry. Ms. Wood’s Canadian History 12 class presented a video selection focused on former SJHS students who enlisted to serve in both WWI, WWII, Korea, and Afghanistan, and paid the ultimate sacrifice. Mr. McNiven’s IB History 12 class paid special tribute to 2004 Graduate, David Greenslade, who died in Afghanistan in 2007 at the age of 20. Mr. Donald Greenslade was in attendance and was given a warm reception by the entire school body. Grade 12 students Allie Ruigrok, Caleb McKend, Hannah Ingalls, and Chelsea Roy paid tribute through a personal essay reading and a reciting of John McCrae’s “In Flanders Fields”.
Thanks goes out to Mrs. Gallagher and her SJHS Concert Choir who paid tribute to past veterans through the singing of three musical pieces. Both Principal Mrs. Van Horne and SRC President Ben Peterson laid wreaths on behalf of the staff and students, respectively, of SJHS. Special thanks goes out to SJHS staff EA Nathan Davis and his Cadets, under the command of Jordan Clarke, who acted as the Honour Guard for the service, as well as Mrs. Young who, along with her IB Art 12 students, put together the service program.
The JV Girls soccer team played their final game on October 25th in Edmundston, which marked the culmination of a great season. The girls fought hard for the opportunity to play at Provincials and represented their school well. The team demonstrated sportsmanship and, more importantly, enthusiasm for the sport; these qualities defined our players throughout the season. The JV team is always made up of an interesting combination of both new and returning players. This year we had a variety of players, a few first timers, some great new talent, and several older players to help shape the team. Regardless of age or experience, the JV girls bonded on and off the field and improved both individually and as a team over the duration of the season. I would like to give a shout-out to the players who stepped-up to play keeper; we are all proud of the progress you’ve made! The success of this year’s JV team would not have been possible without our fantastic coaches, Jennifer and David Peterson. On behalf of the team I would like to thank you for all the time you gave to make this season a fun and rewarding experience!
