Sr. Soccer teams: 
Girls - Missed out on a playoff spot in a tie breaker with Citadel in the Division 2 league play. 
Boys - Lost out in the first round of playoffs in the Division 1 Metro high school league play. The team went undefeated through league play this year and exceeded expectations in Division 1 Tier 2 this year. They also traveled to Rothesday Netherwood School to take part in the Sr. Boys CAIS tournament for the first time in many years. 
Touch Football: 
Lost in overtime in the semi finals of league play after an undefeated regular season. Three of our senior school students were the volunteer coaches of the team along with Ms. MacNeil. Very happy with the success that this program has received over the past few seasons. 
Cross Country 
16 students advanced onto provincial championships in Cheticamp, NS. 
Grade 10 student David Waller won the intermediate boys division 
Intermediate girls team placed 6th overall
Intermediate boys teams placed 4th overall
Sr. Boys team placed 4th overall. 
The Rothesay trip did not happen this year but we did follow up with some lunch hour intramural opportunities down at the south end tennis club throughout September and October. 
4 Boys (3 senior and 1 middle)  and 1 Sr. Girl took part in the Regional tournament hosted at Grandview Golf and country club by HGS
Lily Reid advanced onto Provincials in Cheticamp, NS. Lily placed within the top 10 and tied for 6th place I believe. 
Sr. Girls Co-op Volleyball:
- 6 senior school grammar students have joined 6 Armbrae students to create a high school girls volleyball team. The team splits practice and game schedules between HGS and Armbrae. Armbrae has a coach who coaches the team. This is the 2nd year we are running this program and it has been incredibly successful thus far. The team is still playing and practicing through to the end of November. 
Senior School Intramural Volleyball: 
Two of our senior students (Tehya and Abby)  have started an intramural volleyball program that run during the lunch hour on Day 3 and Day 9. A big success in terms of turnout and participation by our senior students.  Will look to continue this opportunity for other sports throughout the year.
