Eagles Soar to Varsity Football Championship
After a 6 year football void, your Eagles, defeated the Eden Flyers 14-7 on Nov. 9th to capture the DSBN Tier 2 title! With realistic expectations of starting up the program again this group of boys exceded any pre-notions finishing the season with a 7-1 record. Special thanks to our captains Lucas Clarkson, Nate Joyner, Justin DeFaria, and Andrew Melo for their leadership by example and timely pep talks. The coaching staff couldn't be happier and are already preparing to defend their title. Any future Eagles looking to play football next year can come visit our booth on the Nov. 28th grade 8 open house.

O Captain My Captain! Silver Medal for Sarah Nelles
Sarah Nelles, a grade 12 student at GSS, recently captained the Ontario Blue squad in the Women's National U18 Hockey Tournament in Quebec City, Quebec. Sarah, who plays regionally for the Stoney Creek Junior Sabres, not only lead her team to the gold medal game, but was named MVP in the semi finals, where she scored a goal and an assist.
With a record of 3-0 (including a win over the Ontario Red team), Sarah and her team took on Ontario Red again in the final. Blue fought valiantly but came up short. The final score was 3-1.
Sarah brought home her silver medal to much acclaim. She has signed to play with the Mercyhurst Lakers, a Division One university in Erie, Pennsylvania next year.
Congratulations on an incredible achievement at Nationals, Sarah! Go Eagles!
