She shoots. . .She scores!
Here is my granddaughter, Olivia in her hockey outfit.
Besides being an excellent student, Olivia is an enthusiastic hockey player. She recently took part in a regional East/West hockey game, which is a traditional annual high school event. It is made up of students from area high schools which are made up into two teams. Olivia is one for a few students representing Ecole Secondaire Northern Secondary School. She scored a goal for her team in front of 2,000 howling students and staff at Memorial Gardens in North Bay. It is always a boistrous affair.
Her proud father sent me the picture. She was one of the younger girls being only this year in the nineth grade. She is an enthusiastic player. Her father always speaks with pride when he tells of her taking the boys into the boards when she played on mixed boy/girl teams when she was younger. She is not one to back down from 'vigorous' play. I am glad she got a little recognition in the local paper for her athletic efforts which go along with her scholastic accomplishments which please me even more.
I am glad she is participating fully in all aspects of the school life and succeeding.
