It has been said that participating in sports encourages students to build life skills such as teamwork, time management, commitment and dedication. This idea could not be more true for Fulford Academy’s 2017/2018 group of student athletes.
Fulford Academy has recently been recognized as a LGSSAA member which means that our high school teams are eligible to compete against other local high school teams.
This past year, Fulford Academy fielded teams in Basketball, Soccer, Volleyball, Cross Country, Badminton and Tennis. Highlights of the year included the run of our female badminton player, Angel, as she made it to the bronze medal LGSSAA final and the success of our male Tennis player, Frank, who earned the Silver medal at LGSSAA and moved on to compete in EOSSAA in Kingston, Ontario!
As we continue to build our teams across the board, we have witnessed a dedicated group of both students and staff to develop our teams and the future certainly looks bright for the Fulford Academy Lions!
To celebrate our talented and successful athletes, we held our first Athletics Awards Banquet earlier this month to recognize the efforts and achievements of this awesome group of athletes. Congratulations to everyone, and all the best in your future athletic pursuits! GO LIONS GO!
