Athletics

  • Congratulations to the Junior Boys Soccer Team on an excellent showing at the KSS Soccer Tournament this past Friday. The team won their first two games with 4-0 and 3-0 shutouts against their opponents, and tied 1 all in the Semi-Final game against Holy Cross, which was ultimately decided for the opposing team in a shootout. Although the KSS Junior Boys did not move on to the final, we were impressed with the skill and teamwork they showed throughout the day as well as their composure on and off the field. Special mention goes to our goal keeper Jack for his excellent result in net as well as to Simon, Malcom, Nathan Arlain and Mirel who scored some brilliant goals over the course of the day! Please excuse the Junior Boys at 1pm today for their first game of the KASSAA season against La Salle. Go Bears!
