A Word from Martin Ritsma, OFSAA Past President Martin Ritsma has been a member of the OFSAA Executive Council since 2006 when he began his six-year presidential term. Martin's term on the Executive Council concludes this spring. His insight and knowledge has been extremely valuable, and we will miss his expertise and enthusiasm greatly. Martin's dedication to the student-athletes of Ontario is evident in everything he is involved in, and he is a pillar of leadership in his Stratford community. Martin is currently principal of Stratford Northwestern SS. It is with mixed emotions that I write this message as the outgoing Past President of this amazing organization – OFSAA. As I shared at our April 2012 AGM, life is all about service. My past six years of service with OFSAA has been a great experience for me and has provided me with so many opportunities for professional growth. In addition, I have been blessed in meeting and working with so many phenomenal educators from across our Province and across Canada. Our teacher-coaches are our most important resource when it comes to high school sports in Ontario, and remains OFSAA’s most important asset. Nothing gets done through OFSAA without the hard work and dedication of the hundreds of volunteer teacher-coaches in Ontario. A huge thank you for what you do and your dedication to ‘education through school sport’. Your service to our students certainly plays a major role in their success in education, as well as their growth as citizens in our school communities and in the larger communities where they live. I would also like to thank the OFSAA staff: Doug, Michael, Elizabeth, Lexy, Lindsey, Beth, Hannah, Peter, Diana, Brian and Ken for their commitment to high school sports and for their patience and support during my six years in the role. I am proud to be connected to this group of professional and



dedicated individuals. Their service to our student-athletes and teacher-coaches goes well beyond the walls of the OFSAA office. I have valued both their professional work and their sincere friendship. I would also like to extend my thanks to Mr. Ted Doherty, Director of Education, the Avon Maitland District School Board of Education, for allowing me to serve on the OFSAA Executive, and for supporting all of the championships hosted within the our board and by the schools in our local Huron-Perth Athletic Association. Thank you as well to our many sponsors that support OFSAA. These valued partnerships provide many scholarship opportunities for students and support programs and championships run by OFSAA. I will certainly continue to be part of OFSAA in the years to come through the hosting of and attending OFSAA championships (so perhaps a few more photo opportunities). I look forward to the opportunity of continuing to serve as the Chair of the CS4L committee. Please continue to brag about this amazing student-based and teacher-driven organization. Promote all that OFSAA does and encourage students and teachers to get involved. Thank you again for allowing me to lead OFSAA, an organization that is known and respected in the Province of Ontario and the Country of Canada.

Launching September 2012! OFSAA is pleased to announce that a new AELS website will be launched for September 2012. The new site will include a number of new features for coaches and administrators, including the ability for schools to perform mass student uploads directly into their database without having to send files to the OFSAA office. Important to Note 1. The AELS system will not be accessible June 18 -20, 2012. During this time, all school, student, and coach information will be transferred to the new system. 2. New security policies require that all usernames and passwords be re-set. Your current usernames and passwords will no longer function after June 29, 2012. Each association has been asked to

provide one email contact for each school. The school’s new password will be sent to this email address at the start of the school year. Should the password be lost, a function of the new site will be a “forgot your password” option, which will reset the password and automatically email it to the email assigned to the school. Schools can change the email assigned to their school at any time. 3. Although many of the functions of the new site will work similar to the current site, a PDF document will be available outlining how to use all the AELS functions. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Michael Suraci at michael@ofsaa.on.ca or 416-426-7440.

OFSAA KidSport Grant for Students This grant program is a joint venture of Kidsport and OFSAA, providing funding for students who would otherwise be unable to participate in school sport because of financial restrictions. Up to $250 per school year was available for a student in need and 32 secondary school students

took advantage of this grant in 2011-12. Application forms were on the OFSAA website and a teacher or administrator from the school endorsed the submission. Students could only apply for the basic fees related to local league play. OFSAA thanks Kidsport for its contribution to this grant program, and we hope that this funding will be available again next year, so check our website for full details in the fall!



Continues in Schools in 2011-12 Thanks to the ongoing support of the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Sport, and the Ontario Trillium Foundation, over 100 schools received up to $700 to conduct Try Day programs. Schools used the funds to motivate the Grade 9 students by providing them with new, interesting and often challenging activities. Most schools purchased equipment that will enhance their physical education programs for years to come. Some focused on fitness with zumba, TRX bands, martial arts and yoga. Others got active by introducing omnikin, floorball, peteka, minisports or pickleball.

Regardless of the sport or activity, they were all a lot of fun!

School Sport Canada Presents the Nike High School Grand Prix

From May 10-13, School Sport Canada presented the Nike High School Grand Prix, the first-ever cross-Canada invitational track and field event for high school athletes. More than 250 student-athletes from 10 provinces and territories gathered at the University of Toronto's Varsity Stadium for a track and field experience like no other. It was a chance for student-athletes from across Canada to come together in competition, celebration, and team pride in an educational forum. Male and female high school teams, selected from each provincial or territorial school sports association, took part in 10 events testing their abilities and dedication. They also enjoyed a weekend full of activities including fun tours of the city, educational panels, and social events. 4


Keep an eye out for information on the 2013 Nike High School Grand Prix. It is open to students from Grades 10-12, and is a one-of-a-kind experience commemorating school sport in Canada. Ontario is able to send one female and one male track and field team, based on leadership, school involvement and track and field experience. For more information on the event, please go to www. highschoolgrandprix.ca. Event photos can be found at www.facebook.com/ HighSchoolGrandPrix.

Bridging the Gap Through School Sport The extension of this grant program enabled leadership students in 56 secondary schools to present flag football, flag rugby, or ultimate to new elementary schools this year. The interaction of these students with the Grade 7-8 classes provides a connection and level of comfort for these elementary students, which will hopefully

encourage more of them to continue their involvement in school sport when they reach high school. Some secondary schools conducted the Bridging program for all their feeder schools and this proved very successful. Both the elementary and the secondary schools received equipment and resources so that the sports can continue in future years. www.ofsaa.on.ca

On May 3 and 4, more than 80 female educators attended the OFSAA’s Women’s Sport School at Brock University in St. Catharines. The Women’s Sports School conference provided a fun professional development opportunity, bringing together female health and physical education teachers from across the province to share ideas and get motivated. Over the course of the two-day event, participants had the opportunity to attend teaching sessions led by experienced professionals. Highlights included information on bullying, mental health, aerobic gymnastics, tchoukball, battling ropes, Zumba, TRX training, and field hockey. The interactive sessions united phys-ed teachers across the province and allowed participants to ask questions, network, and discover new/unconventional sports and teaching methods to pass on to their students. The conference also included a tradeshow, which gave sponsors the opportunity to display and sell programs, products and services, while interacting with conference participants one-on-one. There were a wide variety of booths to visit, as well as many prizes to be won. Following the tradeshow, a social was held for all conference attendees, which had the ladies mingling, dancing and doing the limbo. Keynote speaker and Olympic rower Melanie Kok, shared her story of determination to a captive

audience, followed by an opportunity to see her medals first-hand.

Hannah's Story: Competing as a StudentAthlete with Type 1 Diabetes My name is Hannah Schmidt. I am a 17-year-old athlete/ student, and I have type 1 diabetes. My life before diabetes was great. I have always been an athlete. I have paddled, play basketball, soccer, skied and was very competitive in all sports. I love to train and compete in just about anything. During my elementary school days I tried to play on as many school teams as possible. In fact participating in sports probably helped me get through school. In Grade 8 I was ill for a few months, and I was then diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I had no idea what that meant, but knew that it was something I could manage. Sure there were times when I felt, why me? I felt that I wanted to be who I was before I got diabetes. So I did just that. I learned very quickly that testing my blood many times a day, measuring all the food that I eat, deciding how much insulin I needed to load in my needles, and finally, putting needles of insulin into my body, were now a regular part of my life. Did it bother me? Of course, but I accepted this is how my life is now. It has not been easy, and yes I make mistakes, but that is part of my learning as an athlete with diabetes. Most recently I was able to be put on an insulin pump. The pump helps me manage my diabetes even better. I had to earn my pump, with consistent blood glucose levels over a span of time, and I was able to get my levels much more steady. I now know how important it is to have great balance in my life. I have always wanted to be a National Team Ski competitor and diabetes will not get in my way. I do have other things to think about while training and racing, however I am extremely organized and am dealing with it. I work hard at everything I do and I feel that overcoming adversity will only make me a better and stronger athlete/person now and in the future. My recent experience at OFSAA 2012 was a great example of setting a goal for myself and trying to ski my best always. This year it was good enough for a double gold medal performance. As I mentioned I do have big goals and I know that making the National Ski Team is going to be a journey full of hard work, disappointments, and attention to detail. I am up for the challenge though, just as I have had to be resilient and determined to live my life as I always had, just now with diabetes. I have an amazing team that surrounds me, my coach Yves, fitness trainer Andrea, sport psychologist Bettina, Dr. Lawson from CHEO, Animas Canada, my teachers 10


who have supported me at West Carleton and Banting, and last but not least, my family, who is always there for me. I continue to participate in community activities that raise awareness for diabetes such as the JDRF Walk for the Cure Fundraiser every spring, where we walk to raise money for a cure for diabetes- something I really hope will happen soon. And I also paddle in a Dragonboat race in Montreal each spring that supports children who are diabetic. I enjoy working with younger children with diabetes to show them that they can do anything, regardless of their disease. I like to show them they can still live a very productive life with diabetes. I would like to challenge anyone out there who has had challenges in their life, to keep working hard and BELIEVE you can do anything! In closing I would like to thank the 2012 OFSAA Organizing Committee for a great event! I had the best time, and I am so glad I went and took part in an event that I will remember for a lifetime. Hannah Schmidt West Carleton Secondary School 2012 OFSAA Double Gold Medallist

March 5 - 7, 2012

Convenor David Whitty and his team at Ridley College (CISAA) were fresh off the heels of hosting the Girls’ A Basketball Championship in November, so they were ready when the basketball players returned to St. Catharines for the Boys’ A Championship. Kicking off the three days of play was the breakfast banquet, which was just the right thing to help fuel up the athletes for the competition ahead. The banquet also allowed for the presentation of the Leadership in School Sport Award, which went to David Whitty for his more than 30 years of coaching in football, basketball, rugby, rowing and gymnastics. He has also volunteered his time hosting numerous national and provincial championships, and organizing countless school team trips across the world. Using the wonderful facilities at Ridley College, athletes were able to showcase their talents in front of lively crowds, as well as to fans across the province through live streaming. The host school battled hard throughout the tournament and for the third year in a row found themselves in the gold medal game against a strong team from Pretty River Academy (GBSSA). In the most exciting game of the championship, the teams went into overtime to determine this year’s winner.

Welcoming athletes to the championship with a banquet dinner helped set the tone for an exciting event to come. A highlight of the banquet was the presentation of the Leadership in School Sport Award to long-time coach Mike Rao of Notre Dame College (SOSSA). Mike has been committed to coaching school basketball and soccer for 36 years, and he is known for helping students reach their potential. He has been a mentor to many aspiring coaches and has been an active volunteer inside both the school and the community in promoting sport and active living. The competition tipped-off and fans were treated to exciting game after exciting game. As has been the case with many AA championships, the strength of competition was once again very deep, with all teams capable of taking home the gold.

OFSAA Boys’ AAA Basketball Windsor

March 5 - 7, 2012

OFSAA Basketball returned to Catholic Central HS (SWOSSAA) lead by experienced convenors Peter Cusumano and Mike McKittrick, as well as their dedicated volunteers. Coaches were quickly introduced to the experience of this committee as all 16 teams were registered within 20 minutes before being treated to a neverending Italian buffet. The banquet had a wonderful flow with speeches being made, prizes handed out, students being fed, and key note speaker Gerry Brumpton, legendary high school coach, sharing stories from his years coaching and bringing teams to OFSAA. The presentation of the Leadership in School Sport was made to Gino Naccarato of Catholic Central HS (SWOSSAA). Gino has been involved in school sport for close to 25 years, bringing a philosophy focused on developing self-esteem and building a strong team first mentality. He has been heavily involved in coaching basketball, but has recently taken up coaching tennis at the school. Gino is also an elite level basketball official having officiated for 30 years. His passion for sport has him always eager to get involved with the planning and hosting of championships, which is non-stop at Catholic Central. Windsor fans were treated to hometown wins by both Catholic Central and Herman HS on day one of the championship. Both teams lost closely contested matches in the quarter-finals, leading to an eventual showdown Participating Teams I.E Weldon SS Jacob Hespeler SS Holy Cross CSS St. Theresa HS Notre Dame CSS Anderson C & VI Earl Of March SS St. Mary’s College Sherwood SS W.F.

OFSAA Boys’ AAAA Basketball Ottawa

March 5 - 7, 2012

Boys’ Basketball returned to Ottawa this winter under the leadership of Mike Rowley (Mother Theresa) and Richard Sutton (Ridgemount HS) and their wonderful committee. The organizing team put a plan in motion to ensure a fantastic and memorable event, and they absolutely succeeded. Sticking to tradition, the championship began with a banquet, bringing the teams together to celebrate their success and set the tone for the tournament ahead. For the banquet, the Sala San Marco provided the venue and dinner for the hungry athletes and coaches. This also provided the opportunity for the presentation of the Leadership in School Sport Award, which was given to Giovanni Donato for his more than 22 years of coaching basketball, football, soccer, and track and field. A true believer in the benefits of active living, Giovanni has implemented programs at his school to help blend athletics with academics. Further, Giovanni has volunteered his time convening four OFSAA championships, sat as a member of the local soccer and track and field committee, and acted as a race starter for NCSSAA. A very competitive tournament tipped-off at a number of host venues across the Ottawa area before the semifinals found their way to Carleton University on day Participating Teams St. Michael's College School St. Mary's HS John F. Ross CVI Collingwood CI Holy Trinity CHS Pine Ridge SS St. Patrick's HS É.S. publique Louis-Riel Our Lady of Mount Carmel SS Father Michael Goetz CSS Westmount SS Ursuline College CSS Father Henry Carr CSS Eastern Commerce CI West Hill CI H.B.

three. After a pair of hard fought semi-final matches, the championship featured last year’s gold medalists, Vaughn SS (YRAA) facing a talented Eastern Commerce (TDSSAA). However, a fast start by Vaughn SS allowed the team to take an early lead which they held onto, reclaiming OFSAA gold with an 86-51 victory. Congratulations to Vaughn players Shandon Mootoosamy, Henry Tan, Kassius Robertson, Roshane Roberts, Cy Samuels, Troy Reid-Knight, Brenden Clark, Julius Antoine, Jawara Pedican, Amir Jabbarian, Martin Kulinich, Monte Gill-Caesar, Vitaly Goroshko, Tristan Newman, and coaches Gus Gymnopoulos, Sharrief Sims, and Kevin Cheung. One of the hardest working teams in the tournament, H.B. Beal SS (WOSSAA), must also be congratulated for being recognized with the Team Sportsmanship Banner. The convenors and organizers were very impressed with the attitude and fair play exhibited by the H.B. Beal athletes and felt they were very deserving of the award.

OFSAA Boys' and Girls' Curling St. Catharines, Grimsby, Welland

March 21 - 24, 2012

Unusually high temperatures made ice conditions tricky for this year’s championship held at St. Catharines, Grimsby and Welland Curling Clubs, but the 40 teams (20 girls', and 20 boys') were up for the challenge. Very close and exciting curling highlighted the round-robin play, and continued into the playoffs, which was great for spectators. Rina Rode from Sir Winston Churchill SS and Karen Douglas from Welland Centennial were this year's convenors, and with their organizing committee left nothing to chance. It was a very well organized and smooth-running event. Congratulations to the boys’ champions from Central Algoma (NOSSA). Team members included Cody Tetreault, Kyle Sherlock, Austin Adams, Daniel Rankin, and head coach Kathy Ingram and assistant coach Mike Brown. Congratulations to the Girls’ Champions from Grimsby (SOSSA), a three-peat performance from that school. Participating Boys' Teams Sir Winston Churchill SOSSA Preston HS CWOSSA St. Andrew's College CISAA Guelph C & VI CWOSSA Osgoode Township HS NCSSAA Uxbridge SS LOSSA Central Algoma SS NOSSA Christ the King SS GHAC Blessed Cardinal Newman CSS TDCAA É.S.C. des Jeunes NEOAA Gravenhurst HS GBSSA St. Ignatius SS NWOSSAA St. Paul High School SOSSA Loyola CSS ROPSSAA

Team members included Chelsea Brandwood, Claire Greenlees, Danielle Greenlees, Charlotte Tousaw, Allison Easterbrook, with head coach Todd Brandwood and assistant coach Pamela Chun. The hit of the banquet was guest speaker Perdita Felicien, who is a World Champion hurdler. Perdita managed to link curling and hurdles together, and delivered an inspired message to all present. Thomas Dillon from Notre Dame College School in Welland was presented with the Leadership in School Sports Award for his role in developing student-athletes at his school over the years. He is a great role model for both coaches and students. Timiskaming DSS (NEOAA) for the girls and Christ the King SS (GHAC) from Georgetown for the boys were chosen as the recipients of the Team Sportsmanship Award for their exemplary behaviour both on and off the ice. Congratulations to both schools!

OFSAA Girls’ Gymnastics Barrie

April 30 - May 1, 2012

Bear Creek SS in Barrie played host to the 2012 OFSAA Gymnastics Championship, and was able to showcase the sport by holding it in their school's triple gym. It was a great opportunity to show both students and members of the community high school gymnastics at its best. Convenors Debbie Grant and Heather Robert worked tirelessly to put on a wonderful event after stepping up at the last minute to host this past fall. Thank you to the convenors and volunteers who helped make the championship a memorable experience. Your commitment to continuing the tradition and excellence of gymnastics is greatly appreciated. The OFSAA Dr. Gene Sutton Award was presented this year in memory of Dr. Sutton, a long-time volunteer whose contribution, commitment, and passion for girls’ high school gymnastics and development were highly regarded. This year’s recipient, Kaarina Tuslisalo, coached the Waterloo Collegiate gymnastics team for more than 25 years, and since retiring in the 90s, Kaarina has attended every Gymnastics Championship, archiving and displaying the history of girls' gymnastics in Ontario. She has helped organize many championships



and still volunteers her time to coordinate the award presentations. Congratulations Kaarina and thank you for sharing your love of high school gymnastics with generations of high school athletes, coaches, and judges. The OFSAA Leadership in School Sport Award was presented at the banquet to Debbie Grant from Bear Creek SS in Barrie (GBSSA). Debbie has been a teachercoach for 20 years in a variety of sports, including golf, volleyball, basketball, and soccer. Debbie started the gymnastics team at Bear Creek in 2007 after an aerobic gymnastics workshop at the OFSAA Women’s Sports School. In addition to hosting this year’s Gymnastics Championship, Debbie has coordinated many Association meets. Congratulations Debbie and thank you for your commitment to school sport!

OFSAA Alpine Skiing Collingwood

February 26 - March 28, 2012

This year, the OFSAA Alpine Skiing Championship saw more than 350 student-athletes from 76 schools across the province gather at Blue Mountain. Since the winter of 2012 was very unpredictable, attendees were pleasantly surprised at the comfortable weather and good ski conditions. Unfortunately, a number forgot to bring sunscreen and it showed on their faces later. At the banquet on Monday evening, the first day awards were presented to the top eight individuals and the top eight teams in each category. The attendees watched an excellent slideshow of all the athletes in the first day races. A recognition award was presented to retired teacher-coach Ernie Philp for his long-standing contribution to OFSAA Alpine Skiing. Ernie has been involved with OFSAA Alpine Skiing since it began in 1971. It was very heartwarming to see the standing ovation which he received. Congratulations to Karen Normet of Iroquois Ridge SS (GHAC) for receiving the OFSAA Leadership in School Sport Award for her outstanding leadership and commitment to high school alpine ski racing. Since she became the alpine ski convenor in GHAC, their participation numbers have doubled. This year she also organized an official’s certification course for many coaches, and she is currently on the OFSAA Alpine Skiing Sport Advisory Committee. Thank you to Elaine Wright, the convenor and chairperson of the OFSAA Alpine Skiing Sports Advisory Committee, the organizing committee, the more than 60 volunteers and the Blue Mountain staff Congratulations to all the participants and the award winners. The numerous spectators were well entertained and enjoyed themselves watching the excellent Slalom and Giant Slalom races. Level 1 Girls’ Slalom Individual 1. Allison Leeming South Carleton HS 2.

OFSAA Nordic Skiing Huntsville

February 23 - 24, 2012

A year ago Nordic skiers were hearing rumours of an OFSAA that would cover downtown streets in snow and bring the race to the people. This was a vision convenor John Cowan (Huntsville HS) had, and 12 months later made a reality by convincing the town of Huntsville to bring in 200 dump trucks full of snow into the city centre. To say there was excitement for this event would be an understatement! A truly collective effort between the town, Arrowhead Provincial Park, Huntsville HS, and countless volunteers made this year’s Nordic Championship one that will be remembered by all who attended. Coaches and athletes were treated to fantastic ski conditions, especially given the warm winter experienced in Ontario. Arrowhead Provincial Park hosted the individual time trials on day one under warm sunny skies and an atmosphere of smiling faces. The busy day on the trails left athletes with an appetite that was satisfied at the banquet hosted by the tremendous staff at the Deerhurst resort. Despite the warm accolades for each of our award winners, they didn’t compare to the thunderous applause that erupted and brought the audience to their feet as John Cowan was announced as the recipient of the Leadership in School Sport Award. A 20-year biography of sport involvement that is too long to list here, John has been heavily involved in coaching Nordic skiing and soccer at Huntsville HS, he has also acted as the school’s athletic director. He has been very active in the community wearing many hats relating to sport development, coaching, officiating, and of course hosting. The evening concluded with an inspiring speech from Dan Roycroft, former Team Canada and Olympic Nordic skier.

As athletes enjoyed the banquet, volunteers were out in the streets of Huntsville preparing the stage for the day two relays. The relays were absolutely spectatular to see as snow fell, music played, and cheering fans lined the downtown streets as skiers made their way around the course. It was a venue that exceeded even the hosts’ expectations, as things couldn’t have worked out better with great ski conditions and closely fought races. For the second year in a row, and in front of the home crowd, Huntsville HS won the Junior and Senior Combined Banners. Once again, a huge thank you is shared from the OFSAA Nordic community to the Town of Huntsville and the host committee for making such a memorable championship for everyone in attendance.

OFSAA Swimming Milton

March 6 - 7, 2012

Convenor, Kevin Wong from Bishop P.F. Reding SS (GHAC) once again stepped up to convene the 2012 Swimming Championship, and even with a last minute venue change to ensure the championship ran as planned, Kevin hosted a successful event. The organizing committee and Kevin put in countless hours of work to ensure the event could be held in a new pool at the Milton Sports Centre. Kevin once again played many roles, including official and chair of the Swimming Sport Advisory Committee. OFSAA appreciates the time he has dedicated to the sport and thanks all the volunteers who made this event possible. The 2012 OFSAA Leadership in School Sport award was presented to teacher and swimming coach John Loncke of Riverside SS in Windsor (SWOSSAA). John has dedicated 15 years to developing the swimming program at the school and expects the best from his coaches, swimmers and volunteers. Over the years, numerous former swimmers have returned to the deck to help coach the team,

illustrating the passion for the sport he instils in his athletes. John has also organized many association swim meets and assisted other convenors with hosting meets. Congratulations John, and thank you for sharing your passion for high school swimming and student-athletes. See results on the next page.

OFSAA Girls’ A Volleyball Toronto

March 5 - 7, 2012

This year's Girls' A Volleyball Championship was convened by University of Toronto Schools teacher Garry Kollins in Toronto. Much effort was put on communicating public transportation options to ensure athletes and spectators didn’t get lost in the big city and at the Ryerson University campus, where the event was held. The volunteers also did a great job webcasting live video of the games for those that weren’t able to attend in person. Thank you to Garry and his organizing committee for their incredible organization of the championship. Garry's commitment to school sport over the years was celebrated at the banquet, where he was given the Leadership in School Sport Award. Garry has coached various sports at his school for more than 20 years, including hockey, basketball, rugby, and volleyball. He has also convened many events and has been the TDSSAA Athletic Representative. Garry has developed the entire volleyball program at UTS around his philosophies of inclusiveness and sport for fun. Defending champions É.S. Embrun (EOSSAA) came out in full force to defend their title, and had a strong performance throughout round-robin play. In a wellplayed gold medal game, Embrun beat out Chippewa

three sets to one to claim the championship. Congratulations to É.S. Embrun players Samantha Boisvenue, Véronique Caya, Alex Chabot, Emma Chesser, Michaela Doyle, Marie-Anne Gougeon, Isabelle Jansen, Amanda Kelly, Élisa Lagacé, Jevana Larocque, Geneviève LeVoguer, Karine St-Clair, head coach Philippe Goudreau, and assistant coaches Andréanne Dazé and Karo Blanchard. The OFSAA Team Sportsmanship award was given to É.S. Cité des Jeunes from Kapuskasing (NEOAA). The Cité des Jeunes Cosmos were leaders at the championship to all athletes with their positive cheering, never-quit attitude and great sportsmanship.

This year’s Girls’ AA Volleyball Championship was held at General Amherst HS in Amherstburg, where many celebrations were taking place remembering the war of 1812. The championship organizing committee, headed by Jeff Miller and Greg Scott, put many hours and effort into making a memorable and well-run event. Thank you to the convenors and volunteers for all your hard work. Congratulations to championship coconvenor and long-time teacher-coach, Greg Scott from General Amherst (SWOSSAA), who was presented with the OFSAA Leadership in School Sport Award.

Greg is much appreciated for being such a leader in the sporting community. Reigning champions É.S.P Gisele-Lalonde (NCSSAA) came back to defend their title and made it through pool play and the quarter finals with ease. It was St. Michael (Stratford) who took the challenge of upsetting the reigning champions in the gold medal match, but fell short in a few close sets.
