The AESS senior girls field hockey team just traveled to Oliver as they kick off a new year of athletics at the high school.

New year, new teams at AESS

Girls field hockey team travels to Oliver, nets beautiful scoring opportunities

Contributed by AESS Athletic Leadership Group

Athletics is back at Agassiz Secondary! To start off the school year we have field hockey being played by the girls while the boys are playing volleyball.

The senior girls field hockey team participated in a tournament out in Oliver this past weekend. The girls were assisted by the junior girl’s goalie, Emily White, who blew everyone away as she played out of the net as a forward. The girls had a great start to the tournament on Friday playing and beating both Enver Creek and Clayton Heights with scores of 2-0 and 3-0.  There were some beautiful goals scored by Millar Fredrickson, Taylor Lees, and Alex Robertson. Saturday the girls played well, losing a very close game to Penticton High which sent one player to the hospital from receiving a stick to the head. The tournament was ended with a devastating loss. We wouldn’t have done as well as we did without our all-star goalie, Shelby Kramer, and our power house defenders.

The junior girls team have started off their season playing great games against some of the toughest teams in their league. All players have played great but Emily White was a life saver in the net.

The junior boys volleyball team had a good start to the season with a defeat over the Rosedale Ravens, with a score of 3-2. Shawn Bushell, Alex Schwichtenberg, Daniel Charlton and Mamadou Diarra all played a great game with the rest of the team not far behind.
