This year’s DCSS school sports season has a tinge more excitement to it than normal. For one, students can actually play games again, instead of the practice-only seasons that increased skill level but left kids wanting more.
At the South Peace campus, junior and senior girls volleyball are both in full swing, as is the cross-country running team. These sports will wrap up near the end of November, with basketball starting early December.
“Student-athletes are super excited to be back playing!” exclaimed Judy Eagles, Vice Principal and athletic director for the South Peace campus. Eagles added that students are already eagerly asking about winter sports.
A highlight of this year will be the AAA Girls Provincial Volleyball Championships. DCSS was set to host the event last year before it was cancelled due to the pandemic. The best players in the province will be here December 1 to 4.
Eagles said student-athletes are still required to wear masks in the gym unless it is for high intensity activities, where the choice is up to the students.
