We've made it to this point with no gym, and we'll have to continue life without a gym for the
next few weeks. Students have adjusted really well to having classes outside and the weather
has been amazing! Students are currently working in Fitness (in the fitness centers), Outdoor
games and Soccer Modules. These modules will continue for the next few weeks into
November and will be followed by similar offerings as well as Table Tennis. Please come to
school ready to be outdoors and active with a change of clothes that will support activity in
colder weather (Sweat Pants, Jacket, Toque and gloves/mitts).
Soccer season came to a close at the beginning of October, both the boys and girls teams
hosted the Division Championship tournaments, and the boys made it all the way to the finals
and battled a tough Laurier team to the finish, coming up just short! Great effort by all players
this season and big thanks to Mrs. Hillard, Mr. Newman, Ms. Muirhead and Mr. Bakos for all of
the time that they devoted to the soccer season!
Volleyball season is still in full swing and has been a very successful one to this point despite
not having a gym to practice or play in (Big thanks to our friends at Douglas Harkness and
Pineridge schools!). As of now, the Sr. Girls, Sr. Boys and Jr. Boys have all clinched 1st place
in the League and head into the playoff as the top seed! In tournament play, the Jr. boys
brought home a championship from the FEO tournament and a Silver from Valley Creek! Jr.
Girls competed at the Volleydome and brought home a bronze medal from FEO. Sr. Girls
grabbed a Silver Medal at the Crescent Heights Feeder tourney, and battled hard at the
Volleydome. The Sr. Boys finished in the Championship Bracket of a very tough Volleydome
tournament. The Sr. Boys & Girls will both be challenging the SAIT Tournament on October
31st! Division Semi-Finals and Finals are the first week of November. Please check the
Clarence Sansom website for the athletics calendar for all dates and times.
Wrestling season is also in full swing with Mr. Joseph and Ms. Muirhead running practices twice
a week. This team is open to all, and if you're willing to commit to two practices per week, you
can be a member of the team and represent the school in competition! Again, refer to the
athletics calendar for specific dates/times for practices and quad meets.
Basketball season will begin with tryouts at the beginning of December...hopefully we have a
gym by then!
