Small school, big talent

Congratulations to all sports teams and coaches at the Phil & Jennie Gaglardi Academy. Our phenomenal volleyball and basketball seasons led to many pioneering moments for our school.

The Grade 8/9 girls volleyball team swept through games in the Comox Valley, Campbell River and Powell River, and won the North Island Zones Tournament.

“For the first time in Gaglardi Academy’s history, we had a Grade 9/10 junior boys volleyball team which created quite a stir in the district as the boys defeated many historically superior teams,” a news release states.

The Grade 9 girls basketball team was second at North Island Zones. And the school made its own history with its first ever senior high basketball team, comprised of Grade 10 and 11 boys. The team competed in junior and senior leagues, and in the Ucluelet and Campbell River tournaments. It end the season by ranking in the top four of the North Island League.

The Grade 6/7 boys basketball team capped an amazing season by winning the Valley Elementary Championship. They defeated Lake Trail 16-6, Huband 18-12, Puntledge 24-14, and then captured the trophy by edging out Robb Road in the final game, 14-12. The team finished the year undefeated with 15 wins and no losses.
