Bantam Boys' Basketball
The Bantams started out slowly, but matured immensely this season. They were a passionate group, who devoutly showed up to 7:00 A.M. practices under Mr. Cheung. They were eliminated in the quarterfinals against Central Tech in a close-fought double overtime. Central Tech went on to the bantam championships. Jarvis’s junior boys were a team that made up for lack of experience with excess heart.
Junior Boys' Basketball
Junior Boys' Basketball team was hardworking but couldn’t seem to bring all its work together to produce wins this season. They ended the regular season with 2-7 record and went on to be eliminated by Oakwood in the quarterfinals. Jarvis was able to keep the game close for the first half, reigning in their opponents and scoring, but were unable to contain Oakwood in the second half, causing their defeat.
Senior Boys' Basketball
The Senior Boys finished their league play with a 3-5 record and lost in the quarter finals to the city winners Northern. Unfortunate injuries plagued the team, making a huge blow to their expectations in mid-season. Despite injuries they did extremely well in all of the tournaments in which they were part. They were consolation finalists in the Jarvis Invitational and consolation champions in the St. Mike's tournament.
Junior Girls' Volleyball
The Junior Girls had a fantastic season, with a 6-1 record, coming 2nd in their regular season. They were eliminated in the semifinals against Northern. Ms. Sgouromitis attributes their successful season to “a huge amount of energy, enthusiasm and serving.” The serving on the team was indeed a deadly force, brushing through whole teams with aces, or unreturned serves.
Senior Girls' Volleyball
Senior Girls' Volleyball was a force to be reckoned with this year. They came 4th and 2nd in the two tournaments they played in, coming within one point of both the medal round and then the bronze medal, in the first tournament. Jarvis beat the first place UFA in the quarterfinals of their season, in a huge upset, but went down swinging to Oakwood in the semifinals.
Ultimate Frisbee began its season on a high note this year. It entered the Catch the Spirit tournament and defeated every team with ease. Jarvis won the finals against UFA 19-9 and tied two other teams in the tournament for the spirit award. The team has a strong set of new players, 17 at the tournament, and a core of experienced players who are hoping to drive to a winning season this spring.
The Swimming team had a record number of students this year, with 30 swimmers. They did exceptionally well, with 20 swimmers going to cities, and 9 on to OFSAA. At OFSAA the team did very well with Tera Li winning the Senior Girls' 50 freestyle and both the junior boys and enior girls making it to the finals. Special congratulations to the Senior Girls who worked so hard for their finals spots: Alissa Vieth, Katie Baldwin, Heather Sinclair, Casey Robinson, Tera Li and Sarah Stewart.
The Cheerleading Team entered their first competition but has already made a long list of contributions to Jarvis this year. They were a part of the December pep rally, the basketball season and the Jarvis Invitational Tournament. In their first tournament of the year, on Feb, 22nd, they placed second in their division, won the most spirited team award and a Tuan Chau won the hip-hop freestyle dance competition. It’s possible for students to see the team perform at Wonderland with a day pass for $26.50. Listen for further announcements.
Following Team Canada’s success in curling at the Olympics, Jarvis tried to follow suit. The team had a 4-3 record this year, carrying them to the semifinals, where they lost to Malvern 6-2. Two returning players, Merrick Anderson and Tianzhi Li, led the team along with a set of new and up-and-coming players who hold promise for next season.
