Listen to radio ads produced by Wm. E Hay students

This week was exciting in our comm-tech department.


This week was exciting in our comm-tech department. Comm-tech students participated in the ShineFM radio ad contest against 15 other central Alberta schools. Four of our comm-tech students were selected with winning ads and got to spend last Thursday in Red Deer at the ShineFM studio learning about and creating more radio ads. We are anxiously waiting to hear if Jordan Lee, Zach Desrosiers, Taylor Marko or Aubrey Carl were the winners of the contest. To hear their ads, listen to ShineFM 90.5.

In sports, the JV girls competed in the zone playoff tournament last weekend in Red Deer. The girls started the tournament with a heartbreakingly close game against Lacombe, finishing 44-42 in favor of the Rams. The Wildcats came back with a vengeance, though, beating the Camrose Trojans by 30 points. In the final game of the season, the girls came up against Lindsay Thurber and came up short. After the tournament, the JV Wildcats found their final ranking as sixth overall. Including their four tournaments, the JV’s record was 13 wins, 12 losses.

The team got medals at the Olds, Lacombe, and our own home tournaments. It was a good season for the Wildcats, competing as a Grade 9 team in a JV (grades 10-11) league. The coaches, staff, and students of Wm. E. Hay want to congratulate the girls on their outstanding commitment, diligent effort, and impressive growth as they represented our school in athletics. Well done, girls! We’re look forward to next season.

It’s March Madness and the senior basketball teams begin playoff action this week. The boys began Monday in Lacombe and the girls begin today in Lacombe. Both games are a one game playoff with the winner advancing to the next round. Best of luck to our Wildcats.

2015 Wm. E. Hay Athletic Board Members presented Central Alberta Basketball Officials Association a donation for their “Kids for Cancer” campaign. The athletic board members fundraiser kicked off their annual senior basketball tournament.
