Ultimate challenge game at lunch:  staff vs the winner of the ultimate intramurals. Come and enjoy the game.                                                                                                                     Mr. S. Miljanic

GOLF IS A FICKLE GAME:  A single chip or wedge and an easy putt or a missed short shot leads to 3 putts…and a lost match.  The recent Provincial Qualifer Tourney saw the Viking Golf Team come in a very close third place….losing by only 7 strokes to VCC to qualify.  Grade 9 Andy Luo shot the second lowest score of the tourney….and with not a single member of the starting 4 players graduating the future looks very bright.  Congrats on a terrific golf season and see you at the Sports’ Banquet.                                                                                                                       Mr. Seehagen
