DAVIDSON — Two provincial sports titles made for a historic year for Davidson School.
As Sandra Baldwin said during the school’s annual awards ceremony on Wednesday, both the senior boys basketball team and the senior girls volleyball team made history in going all the way and winning provincial gold.
For the school to earn two titles in one year was itself a significant milestone, she added.
Baldwin called the teams up one by one, inviting the players to join hands with Kindergarten students and lead them to the front of the room.
“Kindergarteners,” she said, “you are holding the hands of champions.”
The students’ achievements in academics, athletics and drama were honoured during the ceremony, held in the gym on Wednesday. Tina Stone and Andrew Read served as masters of ceremonies.
Const. Kam Hay from the Craik RCMP detachment was on hand to present the Citizenship Award to Grade 11 student Miranda Farrell.
Senior basketball player Gabe Ebenal paid tribute to coach Kim Rettger, who received the West Central District’s Outstanding Coach award.
