As anticipated with 2 highly skilled teams, the game was fast-paced right out the gates. Innisdale took the scoring lead in the first, but not before James Nightingale hit a 3-point buzzer beater to keep them within 10 points. Eastview battled on defence and offence, with strong drives in the paint and made free throws to end the first half down by 3, with a score of 35-32. Despite our high energy and powerful team speeches at half, our Eastview boys simply could not match the 3-point shooting offence of Innisdale and ended the game with a loss of 69-79. The boys fought hard and have made their coaches extremely proud with how far they have come & developed as a team. Many great wins (including the historical Collingwood Tournament win), were a direct result of an entire team effort and shared minutes. Special thanks to our graduating Gr. 12s (Nate, Dan, Brady, Adriano, Sam, Wes & Kareem), many of whom have dedicated their high school careers to sharing their talents to develop the basketball program at Eastview. Gr. 11s - Cal, James, Patrick, Jacob & Jayden, we look forward to having you back next year! Look forward to seeing you all at the team dinner tonight - 6pm at The Works.

The race yesterday was their last one and was their last chance to be the best in Ontario. Capturing bronze on Monday in a slalom event was an impressive feat but yesterday the girls didn’t hold anything back and no other team could match their speed, skill and desire to win. For the first time in 20 years, an Eastview Alpine Ski team found themselves at the top of the podium with gold medals around their necks, proud of what they did and proud to being representing Eastview and the GBSSA.<br>Congratulations to Abby, Sydney, Yuna, Teagan and Avaon a truly amazing accomplishment.
