The Senior Girls Field Hockey team finished an excellent season with a 10th place showing at the BCs. The team finished third in their pool with two losses on the first day to JL Crowe and LFA, and then a great 4-0 win over SOSS. Then in the consolation side quarterfinal the team managed to hang out to a 1-0 win in a tense and physical match with Southridge. This win put them into the consolation semi finals where they played some excellent field hockey in a chilly, rainy early morning match.
This game resulted in a 3-1 victory which meant they were into the consolation final. In this game they were defeated by St. Michael’s but overall it was an excellent week of high level field hockey. Congratulations to the team on a wonderful season.
The Senior Field Hockey team crushed their opposition in playoffs and have won the Fraser Valley Championships. This means the team has also earned their eighth consecutive trip to the AA Provincials to be held in Vancouver next month. The team was dominant on offence and put in a solid defensive effort in each game. In their first game the Grizzlies got off to a bit of a slow start but once the offence got going they were in control and defeated Agassiz 6-0. Playing back to back games the Grizzlies came out strong in their second game and defeated North Delta 9-0. Their final game was against a familiar rival from Southridge, and the team played some of their best field hockey of the season winning 5-0. It was an outstanding effort from start to finish! Congratulations!
The Senior Girls Field Hockey team had a great trip to the Golden Pumpkin Tournament in Surrey. On Thursday the team battled to two 1-1 draws with Panorama Ridge and South Kamloops.

The Senior team will now compete at the Fraser Valley AA Championships next week and are looking to qualify for the Provincials at this tournament.

Prior to the playoffs the team will be travelling to Surrey to compete in the “Golden Pumpkin” tournament this weekend. Good luck Grizzlies!
The Senior Field Hockey team had an excellent game against Southridge, defeating their rivals 8-1. It was an excellent offensive performance, with balanced scoring from many different players. The defense and midfield worked hard to shut down the Southridge offence, and the Grizzlies had solid goaltending. The win keeps the team undefeated this season in their league.
The Senior Field Hockey team is off to a great start in their tournament with two shutout wins over Maple Ridge Secondary and Stanley Humphries Secondary. Excellent offensive and defensive effort from the whole team. The Grizzlies play their next games tomorrow afternoon.
Some great photos of the Senior Field Hockey team in action last weekend at the Southern Okanagan Field Hockey Festival. Next up this week the Grizzlies host their own tournament on Thursday and Friday.
