Sports Update Fall/Winter 2016

Fall Results

Golf: The Golf team won the GMAA championship, held at the Caughnawaga Golf Club.

Volleyball: Both the Midget and the Juvenile teams had a good season but unfortunately neither advanced to the finals. This year there was no Bantam division since there were not enough teams in the league.

Soccer: The Juvenile Soccer team won the GMAA Division 1 Final Championship against Lasalle Community Comprehensive High School. It was a battle between two undefeated teams that went into overtime, with Loyola bringing home the banner. At the Bantam level, Loyola’s Division 1 team reached the semi-finals, and the Division 2 team reached the finals. The Midget team also reached the finals this year.

Cross-Country Running: Racing against more than one hundred other athletes per category at the Annual GMAA Cross Country Run held at Mount Royal, Loyola placed third in the Bantam category, and took home first and fourth place in the Midget division.

Football: While our teams did very well in the regular season, the Juvenile team lost in the regional final against Dalbé-Viau and our Cadet team lost in the semi-finals to Collège Jean-Eudes.

Winter Sports

Hockey: This year, a second Peewee Hockey team has been added to our sports program, in consideration of the fact that there are generally anywhere from 65 to 90 students trying out for one team. Both Peewee teams are in first place right now - one team is part of GMAA, the other is in the LHIQ (a new league formed last year). Our Bantam team is undefeated in regular season play. Despite winning the Alexander Galt Tournament in late November, the Juvenile team is in the middle of the pack in league standings.

Basketball: All three teams (Juvenile, Midget and Bantam) are off to a good start this season. To date, the Juvenile team remains undefeated.

Wrestling: The Wrestling team had their first meet on December 8th against l'École secondaire de Mortagne, and prevailed by a score of 73-5. They are the defending GMAA champions. 

Swimming: The Swim team will have their first meet at the beginning of January.

In Summary

Winter sports have started off well for Loyola. And despite a slow start to the year performance-wise with only two GMAA championships (compared to the last two years, where Loyola had 7 or 8 after the fall season), the coaches are very proud of the effort and commitment of our athletes during the season. Whether on the practice field or the game field, it was the contribution of every player and the desire to play as a group of brothers that made for a great experience. Well done boys!
