Rocket Report: students attend track meet, badminton regionals

The track team headed to Swift Current on May 4 for an invitational meet, where the whole team excelled in most of their areas.

ASSINIBOIA - This past week had Assiboia students thinking about their future! Grades 10 and 11 headed to Moose Jaw on April 30 for a career expo that hosted many other schools in the surrounding areas.

The expo was quite hands-on. For example, some students could build small wooden toolboxes at the Saskatchewan Polytechnic table. There were also multiple medical stations where students could ask about nursing, speech pathology, x-rays, ultrasounds, and many other medical courses. This career expo allowed students to explore more career paths and think about next year’s classes.

The track team headed to Swift Current on May 4 for an invitational meet, where the whole team excelled in most of their areas. Kaelyn Snape said, “Our Rockets gave those city kids a run for their money!” and they sure did!

Firstly, in the Grade 9 category, Keagon Haug got first in high jump, 3rd in long jump, second in the 200m and the 100m, and finished with a personal best of 12.30 seconds.

Then Ava Coghill won second in the 200m race and discus and placed third in shot put. Kaelyn Snape got first in high jump, second in the triple jump, and third in javelin.

In the Grade 10 category, Ella Kwasnicki got fourth in the high jump and placed quite high up in her other events.

Grayson Ciocia won second in high jump, hurdles, and triple jump and was only 0.03m away from placing first.

Then our senior group Kaylee Beaubien won third in 1,500m, second in 3,000m, and third in 800m races. Also, Jessica Beaubien won second in discus and did very well with her first time doing the quadrathlon this year.

In badminton, Ty Reid and Keaton Hillmer headed to Rosetown and won gold. Seven other boys double teams made it to regionals and the two were placed in a pool with Swift Current, Colonsay, and Kindersley. They went undefeated in the pool after they advanced to the semifinals against Leader and went into an intense battle winning two matches, and Leader winning one - scores were 21-17, 21-18, and 22-20. This forwarded the boys to the gold medal match against Rosthern where they became victorious with a 21-6 and 21-9 win. They are headed to Nipawin on May 11 for the SHSAA badminton provincial championship.

Over the week the crew of the drama production has been working insanely hard to get costumes, props, and sets together before the curtain opens.  The team hopes that many will be able to see their hard work put into action.
