 ATHLETICS -  

  • The Sr Boys braved the icy roads saturday morning and represented our school at zones in Edson.  The boys played hard but were not able to qualify for playoffs. Our small team of guys had big hearts and they showed it repeatedly.  Thanks for putting on the jersey and working hard throughout the season boys
  • For the Sr girls it was a very sad “close but not quite”.  The Sr girls showed up Saturday morning for the snow delayed zones in Calmar.  With two days worth of games being crammed into one day it was busy. The girls opened the event strong, going 4-0 in the round robin playing and beating the other 4 teams in the event back-to-back-to-back-to-back...without a break!  Unfortunately, the girls were then matched up against a strong Calmar team they had just finished beating 17-15 in the 3rd set in their final round robin game.   Calmar was out for revenge after being so close in the previous game and despite a few push-backs our Mustangs were unable to regain their confidence and ended up losing the crucial semi-final match.  Despite being heartbroken our girls played with pride, beating Devon in the bronze medal match.  In most seasons a team would be thrilled with the amazing results the team had: 1st in their home tournament, 2nd in Hilltop, 1st in Devon, 2nd in the B side at Rocky Mountain House, 1st in the GCAA, and finally 3rd at zones.  The 2018 Sr Girls were a talented and competitive team though and the bronze medal was not the one they wanted to bring back to Onoway.   They played their hearts out all season long and represented our school and community with pride.  Way to go girls.
