Horton In the News –
The Football Griffins won their semifinal game against Cole Harbour to secure their spot on the D1 provincial football final. The article features a photo of quarterback Caleb Melanson and quotes from Melanson and running back Jayden Simmonds.
Horton hosted a Brain Wars event for schools in the Board recently The event was organized by Jessica Bennett and Ms. Webb, who are also featured in the accompanying photo and quoted in the article. You’ll have to read the story to find out what project earned the Horton team their second place finish.
The Boys Hockey Griffins record of 2-1-0 got them to the semifinals of the Birthplace of Hockey tournament in Windsor, but unfortunately their only loss was in semifinal play to the Glace Bay Panthers who went on to win the tournament. Featured in the article is a photo of Tristan Cavanagh and Callum Pardy teaming up against the J.H. Gillis goaltender and quotes by Coach Jeff Moore.
O’Neal Blackman, who graduated from Horton last year and is attending Acadia recently held a Wheelchair Dare for Muscular Dystrophy at the university’s sports complex. For a donation he offered the opportunity to try a wheelchair and experience what it is like to do everyday activities. The event, which raised $300 for Muscular Dystrophy Canada, also raised awareness of the barriers that wheelchairs users face.
