Horton In The News:
The first two articles of this year look back to the summer when Griffins participated in Athletic Games. One article is about the experience of Meghan and Heather McLean at the Canada Games in Manitoba. The other is about the six Horton students who competed at the North American Indigenous Games in Toronto (although soccer matches were played in Hamilton). Lauren Kruszewski, Emma Olszowiec, Skylar Maguire and Aliya Lickers were members of the Nova Scotia soccer team which represented Atlantic Canada. Nelson Kruszewski ran in the 400 and 800 m races and Emma Atwell competed in Archery placing fourth. Congratulations Emma! The Indigenous Games are the largest sporting and cultural gathering for First Nations people on the continent.
This week it’s all about football. The Living the Dream article talks about the establishment of the high school football in the AVRSB. It started with Horton and Avon View, followed by CK, NKEC and West Kings. Horton grads Adam Melanson, Cameron Davidson, Isaac Melanson and Brandon Whitman are all on the 2017 Acadia Axemen football squad and had great things to say about their time on the Griffins football team.
Another full paged article, which includes four photos, featured Horton’s home opener against Citadel which had an unfortunate 37-7 end. The Griffins got on the board with a last minute pass from Caleb Melanson to Alex Hayes converted by Luke Johnson.
