Graduating students from our OFSSA programme
Every year it’s great to take all the high-school-aged archers down to the annual tournament, but there’s always a sad part to the trip. Every year, we have to say good-bye to some of our competitors and hope that they stay with the sport as they move on to work and/or higher education.
This year, we say good-bye, but hopefully not farewell to:
Hannah Robinson (NDDHS)
Patrick Jaquemet (NDDHS)
Jay Simzer (Seaway Valley DHS) and
Mackenzie Gifford (NGDHS)
Good luck to each of you!
OFSSA Archery 2015 – great SNAC performances
For almost 30 years, Ontario High School students come together in Toronto to compete indoors and for most of those years, SNAC archers have been there.
This year, we had a terrific group of students who shot very well! All archers shot either their averages, personal bests and/or better than last year. Congratulations to everyone! Area archers came back with 2 6th-place medals: McKenzie Gifford (CPD UNL) and Patrick Jaquemet (OLY).
Schools represented this year were: North Dundas DHS, North Grenville DHS, Osgoode THS, Leahurst College, St. Mark’s, St. Michael’s HS, John McCrae SS and Thousand Islands SS.
Special thanks goes to our parent volunteers who helped Kathy get everyone down and back: Kelly Robinson, Erika Hockey and Ted Broadhurst.
