Senior Boys Volleyball - Fraser Valley Champions
Last Thursday night, our Senior Boys Volleyball team captured the Fraser Valley Championship banner with a thrilling, five-set, come from behind victory over Fraser Heights. The Gators did not play their best volleyball in dropping the first two sets to the Firehawks, but rallied to even the match at two sets each. In the fifth and deciding set, the two teams traded points until Fraser Heights burst ahead, opening a 13-9 lead and putting our boys two points away from a second place finish. But the Gators rallied and stormed back to tie the set before eventually winning a nail-biter, 17-15 in the fifth set! Congratulations to coach Gary Lutes and all the players for a remarkable effort! Daniel Stead and Brett Christensen were both named Fraser Valley Tournament all-stars and Andrew Goertzen was named the Most Valuable Player. Their outstanding season will continue in two weeks at the BC Championships to be held at the Langley Events Center on the weekend of December 2,3,4 and 5. The team opens pool play on Wednesday December 2 at 9:30 am vs. Oak Bay followed by Fraser Heights at 12 pm and then concludes pool play against Vancouver Tech at 2:30 pm. The results from pool play will determine their game time and seeding for Thursday's playoff rounds. Good luck boys and go Gators!!!!
Langley Christmas Bureau
This year Walnut Grove is helping to collect donations for the Langley Christmas Bureau. Every year the Christmas Bureau collects donations from the community and puts together hampers that are delivered to local families who are struggling to feed themselves over the holiday season. This year, WGSS will be collecting items for over 15 families in need. Items include dry goods to incorporate into a Christmas dinner or breakfast and cash donations for gifts. Any help that you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
All items need to be collected and dropped off in our hamper box in the office or participating classrooms by Friday Dec 11th.
Thank you in advance for your help in supporting those families in our community who are most in need this holiday season.
