The New Horizons boys and girls Nighthawks basketball teams ended their seasons on Thursday, February 23 by finishing in the medals on our home court. It is the first time NHS has hosted league final games.
The girls played in the bronze medal game against the Holy Spirit Heat. The girls took an early lead in the game and never looked back as they defeated Holy Spirit 38-18 to capture the bronze medal.
The boys team faced the St. Theresa Hawks in the gold medal game. They held their own against St. Theresa but eventually came up short in a 45-29 loss and captured the silver medal.
This is only the second year that NHS has had sports teams, and for each team to capture a medal is something to celebrate!
To the players, congratulations on your achievements. You have worked hard all year, and you have earned the medals that you received. You have made us all proud.
Thank you to the Ms. Wygiera and Mr. Craig who coached the girls and to Mr. Craig who coached the boys team. Your dedication, time and enthusiasm for the sport has helped make sport and the Nighthawks come alive in our school.
Finally, thank you to the Elk Island Catholic School Sports Council for including us in your league. Your welcoming spirit has helped our students experience an important aspect of school life.
