News Oct 15, 2009 Ancaster News

With all of the fall sports teams underway, the season heats up as the Ancaster High Royals practise for upcoming playoffs and tournaments.

On Oct. 5, Ancaster High’s Senior boys volleyball team faced off against Vanier and the defending city champions, Westdale, at MacNab after school.

Ancaster High defeated Vanier in a strong 2-0 win. The boys knew that winning against Westdale was not going to be easy because of the team’s victories from the previous year.

The Royals ended up winning a close 2-1 game against the Warriors.

Excited about the win, the senior team is looking forward to playing strongly in upcoming games and playoffs.

“Going to OFSSA is by far our team’s biggest goal, but winning the city title is definitely our main focus right now,” said veteran player Brennan Wilson.

On the same day, both Ancaster High’s Junior and Senior girls basketball teams faced off against MacNab. The Junior girls came out on top 45-12. The Senior girls played a closer game with a score of 54-40.

The Senior boys football team also faced off against MacNab last week at their rival’s school.

The Royals experienced a disappointing 31-7 defeat. The offence was led by the team’s running back, Dave Smith.

The boys are continuing to practice in the hope of defeating their remaining opponents en route to the city championships at Ivor Wynne stadium in a few weeks.

Ancaster High’s girls field hockey team has also been extremely active this season.

The team faced Westmount on Tuesday, Oct. 6. Though it was a close game, the girls lost 1-0.

The loss was a valuable learning experience for the team and braced them for their next game against athletic powerhouse Westdale on Oct. 8. The Royals played an excellent game and defeated Westdale 3-0. The girls are hoping to play in semi-final games this upcoming week.
