SJA Announcements

Oct 22-25, 2018

This week
  • The SJA JV Boys Soccer team demonstrated true resilience in the face of impossible odds yesterday as they snatched inevitable victory from the grasp of their opponent. Down by three goals with only five minutes remaining, the boys summoned an inner strength comparable to the sum total of the number of vowels in Ms. Aguinaga's last name. The balanced John A. attack was propelled by Cole "the Cannon" Crawford with 2 bombastic blasts, Peter, "Savoury" Savoie and "Scory" Rory Ward added the singles. The boys next game is this Wednesday at Westmount field at 4:30 pm. Mr. Turnbull will not be available for drives because he will be out of the building at PD. Please arrange transportation Pablo, Maxmillian and Bora! Ciao!
  • Flames girls hockey had some Cheetah meat for supper last night. A tied game against CPA with goals scored by Sophie Marsh and Sarah Cottreau. Catch the girls' hockey home opener THIS Friday at SMC at 4, while they take on Citadel!
