After Goderich was unable to make it to St. Michael’s in Stratford on Tuesday, the game that was planned for the senior boys and girls’ of DCVI is now being rescheduled. However, the elder Salukis did have one game as they visited St. Mike’s. However, both the boys and girls, despite some very good efforts and showings, neither team was able to emerge victorious. In the senior girls game, the team put in a hard fought game but unfortunately fell at the hands of a very impressive showing from St. Mike’s, falling 5-1. When the boys took the field, they too hung with their opposition and put in a strong showing, however, fell to a heart-breaking 3-2 defeat. The junior boys and girls were busy yesterday as they hosted the teams from Goderich and St. Mike’s at DCVI.
The regular season will be coming to a close for the soccer teams this week. The junior teams will be finishing up their strong seasons with two games on Monday followed by two on Wednesday. They will be at Stratford Northwestern first to face South Huron, before heading over to St. Mike’s for a game against Listowel. On Wednesday, they will end their year on the road at Central Huron, taking on both the host team and Stratford Central. As for the senior boys and girls, it is currently unknown when they will have their game with Goderich, but on Tuesday, both the senior boys and girls of South Huron and F.E. Madill will be coming to DCVI to do battle with the Salukis.
In addition to the soccer season, track and field athletes have been working hard for a few weeks and on Tuesday and Wednesday, went to the Huron Perth meet and showed their skills. Jenna Dufton, a grade 10 girl, won first place in the shotput event and was one of three different DCVI students to record first place finishes. Hazel Taylor also picked up a very impressive victory as she finished first in the Women’s 1500 meter steeplechase. Finally, Marcel Scheele, who has become synonymous at DCVI for his outstanding athletic prowess, especially in track events, once again showed his speed. Marcel not only finished first but blew away his competition in the steeplechase, 1500m and 3000m runs. A big congratulations to Jenna, Hazel, Marcel and all of the students from DCVI who competed and made DCVI very proud at St. Anne’s.
