The team performed wonderfully at this past week’s qualifying meet. 16 of our 22 athletes qualified for the next meet in 29 events. Also, the team set 24 personal bests. The team is surpassing expectations and it is great to see them having fun and competing hard against much bigger schools. In just over a week, the team will travel to Coquitlam over three days to try and qualify for the Provincial Championships in Langley. The end of the season is creeping up but there is so much more to accomplish; the team is up for the challenge.

Another great day for the Highroad track and field team on Friday as they competed in the Christian Schools Meet. The team won its first track and field banner in school history capturing the ‘A’ Senior Boys title. Aaron, Ben, (Sam G. and Josiah G. ran on the senior boys 4×100 relay team), Nathaniel, Phil, and Vincent earned the well-deserved banner.
Additionally, Highroad also placed first in the ‘A’ categories of grade 8 boys, overall grade 8 team, and entire team.
This was the team’s last meet before the qualifying meets begin during the first week of May. They are peaking at the right time and it will be exciting to watch them compete against some big schools in just over a week.

The Lord was good to us and kept the rain away for our first meet of the season. There were many good results at the mini meet and the team was able to get an early gauge of where they are compared to the other local schools.

Last Saturday both of our Grade 8 and Grade 9 Boys Basketball teams played for the Fraser Valley East Banner vs. GWG and then moved into the Fraser Valley Championships.
The Grade 8 boys started slowly again GWG, but worked their way back throughout the second and third quarters. In the end they ran out of time and lost to GWG 52 to 33, placing 2nd in the Fraser Valley East and earning a birth to the Fraser Valley Championships.
In the Fraser Valley Championships the grade 8’s were up against a strong team from MEI. The game started off very well with the Knights leading by 8 at the end of the first quarter, but then MEI battled back and took over the lead in the second quarter and would continue to build on it finishing with a 66-49 win over Highroad.
The Grade 9 Boys played an excellent game against GWG on Saturday led by Easton Abel with a team high 23 points. Near the end of the fourth quarter GWG came on strong to tie the game and send it to overtime. Highroad would not be able to recover and ended up with a heartbreaking 59 to 67 Loss in OT.
Next up was the Fraser Valley Championships first round against a physical team from North Surrey. After another mid game lead, highroad could not hold on and lost 45-38.
