Crowe Hawks gear up for regional tournaments

After a thanksgiving rest, the various J.L Crowe Hawks’ sports teams came back seemingly even better and stronger than before.

After a well- deserved thanksgiving rest, the various J.L Crowe Hawks’ sports teams came back seemingly even better and stronger than before.

With playoffs and regionals taking place this week, the anticipation is growing. Also, despite the crisp, chilly weather, the competition is heating up immensely.

The girls’ field hockey team met Castlegar on the pitch and came out victorious, which  set them up comfortably for Monday at Stanley Humphries. In an intense match up, the game went into overtime and had the audience on the edge of their seat as the Hawks won in a shootout 3-2. It’s a needed boost as the team prepares for its upcoming game in Kelowna this week.

In other news, the senior boys’ soccer team played Castlegar and obliterated them 6-0, landing them in a perfect spot for the Kootenay Soccer Playoffs in Creston. With their endurance and skill, a run at provincials could easily be an upcoming reality for them.

With their explosive results in the Kelowna tournament, the senior girls’ volleyball team is getting continuously stronger. They impressed many at the tournament, coming out ninth overall out of 40 teams.

Also, during a nail-biting tournament in Kaslo, they defeated the home team and had a few very close games against Nakusp. The girls will be heading to Castlegar today for a miniature tournament consisting of three teams.

The junior and Grade 8 girls volley ball teams, which are five teams all together, had four play-days last Thursday. The Grade 8s travelled to Grand Forks and had a fun time with great results, while the juniors played at J.L. Crowe.

The girls played stupendously, taking virtually every game and left the tournament feeling proud. While still becoming more swift and sure-footed, the girls are awaiting their chance to play against the current team to beat, Mount Sentinel.

Finally, aquatics continues to train vigorously. The swim team will compete at the Regionals in Kimberley this weekend in preparation for the Provincials in Richmond Nov. 15-16.
