We've spent the better part of first two months of the school year focusing on Volleyball, Soccer and
Outdoor games, and the skill improvement is amazing! With the end of October brings a new module and
one that is taken by all Sansom students: Dance. Students can look forward to learning and revisiting
Line Dances, Hip Hop and other styles of dance in a fun and stress-free environment! Get ready to cut a
rug in the gym!
It has been a truly excellent start to the school year for the Sansom Athletics Department! Soccer was
the first season to draw to a close, and the boys and girls teams fought hard at the Divisional
Championship tournament! Both teams came up just short of the championship final games, but had
some great experiences and represented Sansom with pride!
Next to finish was the Cross Country season, with all races taking place at Nose Hill Park, which is an
awesome venue for XC events! Again, Sansom athletes worked extremely hard and represented the
school with pride and brought in some great finishes, and a special recognition goes out to Nic P. who
had two amazing runs and finished in the top 10 in both of his runs! Congrats to Nic and all Sansom
runners on a great season!
Volleyball continues into November and has seen a ton of success to this point. All teams are turning in
great results in divisional play seeing them sit at or near the top of the standings! In tournament play, the
Jr boys finished a great tournament at Rally Pointe on Oct 4 with a semi finals appearance against
schools with some really experienced volleyball players! The same occurred on the 25th with both the Jr
boys and girls showing well, again at Rally Pointe! The Jr girls also had some skill building games at the
FEO tournament on Oct 17. The Sr girls and boys hosted SPIT Volleyball on Oct 17-18 which saw
Elboya, Tom Baines, and Calgary Christian School come to compete in the annual event! Both teams
played really well, with the girls finishing in the consolation game and the boys winning the tournament
championship! The Sr boys also attended the 8-team Crescent Heights feeder tournament and took the
tournament championship, and finished just short as the silver medalists in the 10-team Volleydome
Invitational. The Sr Boys will end the month travelling to Three Hills, Alberta to attend the Prairie
Christian Academy Invitational to take on 12 teams from all over Southern Alberta. All teams begin
Divisional playoffs in November, with the league finals being held November 14 at Lester B. Pearson High
school from 4:30-8:30 pm. Go Scorpions!
Finally, wrestling has started up and wrestlers are training hard to improve their skills. Practices are in the
wrestling room (the stage) on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and the first Quad meet is October 29 at
Clarence Sansom! The Quad will take place from 4:00-6:30 pm. More quad meets will follow in
November with divisional championships in early December.

Best of luck to all Sansom athletes throughout the month! Train hard, work hard and continue to
represent Sansom with pride!
