Sports Corner - January 2015

The Boys Basketball tryouts for both Grade 4/5 and Grade 6 Boys have taken place. Boys who make the Basketball Team will practise on a regular basis on Tuesdays @ 3:15 p.m. and Thursdays @ 7:30 a.m.

Mr. Stamatopoulos
The Brown School Hockey team participated in the UCC U12 Hockey Tournament on Friday, January 9 and Saturday, January 10 2015. The team played 3 great games on Friday which included a big win against Crestwood and an extremely close loss by a score of 3-2 to Lower Canada College.  The team went into Saturday's games with high spirits and a great attitude, so much so that opposing coaches were complimenting the Brown P.S. team for showing great team spirit.

At the conclusion of the tournament the team played 5 games and are now ready to tackle the rest of their regular season schedule. Next up...Rosedale P.S. on January 21st @ Forest Hill Arena.

A special thank you to Christopher Bolton, Jason Blicker and Mr. D for all their help, along with all the support from the parents. We couldn't have done it without you.
