J. L. Crowe sports in full fall swing

As another eventful and well anticipated week of J.L. Crowe sports went by, the outcome was once again successful.

As another eventful and well anticipated week of J.L. Crowe sports went by, the outcome was once again successful.

The Senior Boys soccer team had a great run in Cranbrook on the weekend, beating Castlegar 7-2, and tying Creston 2-2, before downing Kimberley 4-1, and the U.S. Team 3-0. However, the high-flying Hawks would be grounded in the final by Nelson in a 5-0 loss.

The Junior Boys’ soccer team is up and running with 17 players. The team played their first matches Wednesday in a three-game play day, and they provided not only passion, but a great deal of understanding for the sport. Victorious, they won rather easily in all three of their games.

All six of the volleyball teams hit the hardwood. Starting with the Senior Girls, who went 1-1 and are still improving from their already impressive beginning.

At the Junior Girls’ first tournament at Mount Sentinel in the South Slocan, the team bonded as the volleyball soared. Although Creston was the eventual winner, competition between Crowe and Creston promises an exciting rematch.  In Nelson, the Grade 8 teams played five games, in which they all triumphed.

In other news, Rossland’s Sage Robine and Daniel Merlo of Trail raced at L.V. Rogers on Wednesday in cross-country running. Taking fifth and sixth place with pride, they elated the audience and illustrated both talent and potential. With their results consistently improving in award placement and becoming much stronger, success is in their near future.

Furthermore, with many strenuous practices, the girls’ field hockey team is developing their skill and unity very effectively. After playing very exceptionally they came up on the short side of a 2-0 game with rival L. V. Rogers of Nelson on Thursday. Unburdened by the loss, the Hawks faced a tough Castlegar side on Monday, as Crowe’s Sidney Pollock scored the lone goal for a well-deserved 1-0 victory.

“It was their best game of the season,” said Crowe athletic director Colin Adamson.

In addition, the Crowe Aquatics team has been training continuously up to six times a week. Growing in ability and numbers, the team is looking forward to the Zones swim meet on Oct. 26 in Kimberley. With this, they are hoping to qualify for the provincials in Richmond in November.

Overall, after hours of dedicated practicing, the teams are fully showing their promise and potential, which gives us all a taste of the prosperous and bright future of J.L Crowe sports.
