The teams saw a big improvement in

court awareness and skill development.

The Junior Boys team worked really

well together, learning a lot in their

practices and games. We didn’t

expect a Senior Boys team this year,

but because of the interest, we were

able to form a team. Both teams were

coached by myself. In addition to these

five teams, we also put together two

Grade 7 girls teams and one Grade 7

boys team for the Christian Elementary

School Sports (CESS) Tournament.

Our two girls’ teams finished 1st and

2nd and played against each other,

with one team narrowly winning 31-29.

The boys’ tournament was held in

Abbotsford and was postponed one

week due to the flooding. Our team

finished 6th.

soccer

There were twenty students that

joined the Junior Boys soccer team

this year, who were coached by

Esteban Diet and Sam Masih and

sponsored by Mr. Friesen. The

team faced a challenging year,

predominately competing against

older and more experienced teams, but

they learned a lot from their coaches in

practices, gaining valuable experience

playing in games and tournaments.

aquatics team

The aquatics team practiced every

Friday morning at 6:30am at Edmonds

Community Centre throughout the

Fall. They were coached by Jaspect

McCoy and Jadon Tsang, both John

Knox alumni, and sponsored by Mrs.

Hwang, a parent and the librarian at

the elementary school. There were

lots of great swimmers this year, and

our young mixed medley relay team

qualified for the Provincials. Our team

finished 2nd in Girls 1A Aquatics and

2nd in Boys 1A Aquatics, just shy of

taking home two banners.

cross country team

There was a great group of students

that joined the cross country team,

who was coached by Mr. Banya, a new

teacher at John Knox. There were

many strong finishes at the track

meets, especially from the Grade 9’s.

basketball

This year we have five basketball

teams, with a Bantam Girls and Junior

Girls teams coached by Mrs. Northand

Mr. Carey, a Bantam Boys team

coached by JKCS parent Pastor Billy

Chiew, a Junior Boys team coached by

Mr. Pierre Amador, and a Senior Boys

teams coached by myself. We’re in

the full swing of things with practices

starting and planning for a Junior

Boys Knox Ball and Senior Boys Knox

Ball in December, and the Junior Girls

Knox Ball in January. The Knox Ball is

an eight-team tournament that John

Knox Christian School hosts and is a

highlight of our basketball season.
