·        There's another team to add to the list of this year's champions. Your Sr. Girls Soccer team brought home a championship yesterday by claiming victory over our cross town rivals, the Sandwich Sabers.  A hard fought and close game was eventually won by a two to one margin thanks to strong all around play from all of the senior girls, as well as two goals by Kristen Swiatoschik. Your Wildcats will play for a SWOSSAA title next week. Wish them luck.

·        Day 2 of SWOSSAA Track was a much lighter schedule for Villanova but we still managed to add more qualifiers to next weekend's OFSAA Regionals. No first place finishes yesterday, but Mandy Brunet did manage a 2nd place finish in the Triple Jump while Aryana Cirino and Noah Renaud finished 3rd in their senior 200 meter finals. Other qualifiers for the day were: Chloe Gignac, 4th in the 200 meters, Dana Ruthven 5th in the High Jump, and Andre Tomassian, 5th in the 3000 meter race. That's now a total 15 individual events and 2 relays that Villanova will contest next weekend. Well done everyone who competed over the past 2 days. There were lots of hard fought competitions and unfortunately lots of heart breaks and close calls. We had 7 athletes miss qualifying by 1 place, some by as little as 1 cm of distance or 2 one hundreds on the clock. Full practice tonight and Monday.
