Bantam Boys Knox Ball Invitational – January 27-28, 2023
Over the course of two days, the Hawks Athletic Council hosted their Knox Ball tournament for the Bantam boys inviting around 5 teams to play round robin. Our very own team played a very good game on the first day beating Fraser Valley but unfortunately taking a loss after their evening game. On the second day, they played their hearts out having great communication on and off the court using several skills including blocking and great passing. Unfortunately, that wasn’t enough to beat the school they were up against and the Hawks came in 4th place in the tournament. It was a great experience for many of our players as it was their first tournament of the season. It was very nice to see them all show out their skills and be able to come in as a team with the grades who have been playing the previous year to create this team. Overall, there were great parents and staff supporters who came and cheered on the boys as they played and this is just the beginning of the great season. Let’s go Hawks!

JKCS vs Khalsa – Tuesday, January 31st, 2023
Last Tuesday Bantam Boys and Senior Girls competed against Khalsa. Both teams gave it their all but came up short. Despite the fact that both teams had lost, they were both entertaining to watch. Congratulations to both teams and best of luck in zones!!

Senior’s Night – February 1st, 2023
On Wednesday, February 1st, we celebrated our five graduating seniors as they played their last regular season home game of their high school careers. Despite the loss, all of them played their hearts out in front of their friends and family. Over the years, each of the boys put in all the blood, sweat and tears into our basketball program and not only did they come out as really good basketball players but as amazing young men. I feel confident that we are releasing them into the world who will be difference makers and leaders.
