Jaden scored 26 points, K’Shawn Latty added 18, while Matthew Nelsons chipped in 14. Other scorers included Caiden Oshinowo with 6 and Imani Mighty with 1.

Wednesday afternoon the U-14 Division II Team traveled to Bayview Glen to play in their first game of the season. They were playing against an older team but they held their own. Great ball handling by Eli Horowitz and Ryan Wise, excellent leadership from Jamie and Cole Luepann, and great defense by Sam Ghiassi and Alex Wagner. Despite the loss the boys played hard, worked well together and had great enthusiasm.
The Varsity Swim Team dove into their season with a great meet Tuesday at the Markham Pan Am Pool. All swimmers showed improvement throughout the day, and posted some great times. Congratulations to those who made new personal best times; Robert Muresan, Andy Tang, and Kaitlyn Balter! We had four swimmers who accomplished the tough feat of placing in the top 8. Shout outs go to Mohamed Basha for placing 6th in his 50 Free and 4th in his 100 IM, and Matthew Laslop for placing 4th in his 100 Breaststroke and 100 Free, and 3rd in his 100 IM.
On Wednesday, the Junior Girls’ Volleyball Team played their season opener against TMS. Having only had a few practices as a team and learning a new system, the girls played admirably against a strong opposition. Recognition must go out to the serving of Maya Berger and Zakayla Day-Burrell, the leadership of Jadaia Reid, and the passing of Megan Pearlman. Although we lost the game, the girls showed that there is great potential as we fine tune our court play.
