Dozzi’s placings at provincial meets have been steadily improving over the past couple of years and the Grade 10 still has a long career ahead of him.

Zone 7 athletics athlete Tanisha Davis’ saw a 6th place finish in girls’ shot put, with Shivohn Peters placing 16th in discus and Nigel Dodd placing 13th in the boys’ 800 metre. The boys 4 X 100 relay team placed 7th.

In swimming, the Zone 7 Girls 4 x 50m Medley Relay placed 7th, with the Girls 4 x 50m Free Relay in 8th.

The boys’ softball team placed 6th overall, with the boys’ and girls’ soccer teams and the boys’ basketball team placing 8th.

The boys’ beach volleyball team finished in 9th place, with the girls’ indoor volleyball team placing 8th.

“Headed to the games we knew we would be up against the most challenging teams and having the youngest team there increased the challenge,” said volleyball coach Kam Siemens. “The goal of the team was to ensure we elevated our game play and could compete with the best of the best. Although we placed 8th out of eight, the girls showed the other teams they were not going to just hand over the win. Every match we had was neck and neck and the competition had to earn each point. I am very proud of our girls.”
