Last night the D1 girls hockey team hosted their final home game of the regular season. Before the game, the team celebrated their 5 graduating lady griffins: Scotia Broome, Kara Hartt-Wellwood, Lily Price, Emma Ruston and Anna Syme. The girls played another nail-biter against the CK Gators. The game was tied 3-3 going into the third period with goals being scored for both teams back and forth. In the end the girls lost 7-5. Kara Hartt-Wellwood picked up her first goal as a Griffin! The remaining goals for Horton were scored by Caelyn Parker, Alexa Derrick and 2 from captain Sarah Hogan.

Well, the teachers came out strong against Team Unified and put up a good battle for most of the game. However, “old age” eventually caught up with the “teacher creatures” as the adults ran out of steam in the 4th quarter. Another big win for Team Unified and the student leaders as they proudly walked away with another victory. Congratulations to all on an excellent game!

NSSAF Memo Reminder:
Coaches are expected to wear masks while coaching and all team players and personnel have to wear masks entering, travelling through and exiting the building. Players who are not in the game are also expected to wear masks while sitting on the bench. A 1-2 minute mask break after exiting from the court is acceptable as long as remembering to place the mask back on covering the mouth and nose properly.
Last but not least …
Something to Think About …
“Fear is a reaction. Courage is a decision.”
(Sir Winston Churchill)
Be courageous today and make great decisions.
Have a great day Griffins and remember to be kind to one another.
