Rugby is back at Parkland! Yesterday, Parkland's Rugby 7s team won 3 out of 4 games and came home with a trophy. An excellent performance by all players and a special shout out to Sam Harper for his leadership skills on and off the field. A big thank you to Mr. Young for making it all happen. Way to go boys!

Parkland's Senior Boys Basketball Team came away with two important wins this past week as they hosted St. Andrews and Spectrum in back-to-back contests on the Thursday and Friday nights. They also had the chance to welcome some very special guests from Deep Cove Elementary School when their Gr 4/5 BBall team showcased their talents at half time of the Thurs night game!
Before the start of the Friday night game, the boys also took the time to honour their four senior players who will be missed next year: Conner M, Connor G, Josh M, and Avery B.
Great job boys, and good luck this coming week in the Lower Island Playoffs!
