PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONS

Congratulations to the Windsor Dukes Senior Football team on capping off a perfect 10-0 season with a 44-29 win over Abbotsford in the provincials finals. Ryan Baker was named the provincial MVP and Mitch Townsend was selected as the games top lineman.

This was a historic season for senior sports at Windsor with almost all of the senior teams qualifying for the BC’s. Topped off by the senior football team winning the BC’s there were also strong showings by the Senior Girls Field Hockey team (5th), Senior Boys cross country (6th), Senior Girls volleyball team (12th) and the Senior Boys soccer team (13th). 

On the soccer pitch, the senior Boys soccer team won the North Shore AA league and finished 12th at the BC’s. The junior boys soccer team finished 4th in the league. The senior girls volleyball team led the way on the volleyball court with a 12h place finish at the BC’s. The junior and bantam gold girls volleyball team made it all the way to the quarter finals of their league playoffs while the juvenile volleyball team lost in the North Shore consolation finals. A small but determined group of girls fought all season for the grade 8 green team. Their numbers were small but their spirit was high. 

The cross country runners enjoyed another year of strong running. The junior girl finished 4th in the North Shore league, 3rd in the zone finals and 15th in the province. The Junior Boys finished 2nd in league races, 2nd in zone finals and 12th in the province. The Senior Girls were 4th in the league and finished 5th in zone finals. The Senior Boys were 2nd in the league, 1st in zone finals, with Alex Campbell winning the race and the team ended 6th in the province.

Congratulations to all swimmers for their hard work on the aquatics team this year. Special recognition to Aaron Brandys for his 1st place finish in the 50M breaststroke and 3rd in the 50M Free at the BC’s.

Thank you to the WPAC for their generous support of Windsor athletics. Last year they purchased a new set of uniforms for the Senior Girls basketball team and much needed equipment for the track and field team. This year they have continued their support of athletics by purchasing a new set of junior girls soccer jerseys. Thank you again to the Windsor PAC.

 

The objective of extra-curricular athletics at Windsor is to foster a healthy appreciation of competitive individual and team sports.  Specifically, our program aims for the pursuit of excellence in the areas of commitment, competition, skill development, cooperation, sportsmanship, leadership, participation and enjoyment by Windsor students.  
 
The focus for teams at the Bantam and Juvenile levels (Grades 8 & 9) is to maximize participation, improve individual fundamental skills, develop team skills, and provide student-athletes with a positive experience in athletics while still remaining as competitive as possible.  Participation and the amount of playing time are both at the discretion of the coach who will consider practice attendance, commitment, work ethic, and other factors.  At the Junior and Senior levels the individual and team focus becomes more competitive.  Emphasis is on team concept development, execution, and being as competitive as possible.  While an effort will be made to maximize participation over the course of the entire season, junior and senior level coaches will play the players that can best help the team in the critical games and moments.  These players, as judged by the coach, are dedicated and committed to the team, work consistently hard in games and practices, and have high level athleticism and skill.
 
Athletics can form the foundation for classroom studies.  Many students are able to transfer the qualities learned in athletics to the classroom.  Others use athletics as an outlet that allows them more control in the classroom and a reason to continue to work hard academically.  For a number of students, athletics offers a lifeline that keeps them in school.  Whatever their approach, our athletes are STUDENTS first and must consistently attend classes and maintain a reasonable educational and academic standing to be eligible for extra-curricular athletics.
