On Oct. 1, the Christ-King Chargers faced off in an exciting match against the Big Valley Bulldogs. The girls displayed great teamwork, however conceded all three games. Playing four games, the boys took home three wins. They had some excellent plays, and showed great drive and ambition. Both teams have been playing very well together, and have worked hard at practices on Tuesday nights. Most importantly, everyone showed great respect towards the referees, coaches, and opposing teams.

The number of participants on our teams here at Christ-King, has climbed greatly this past year. The boys’ team had numerous ‘three hit attacks’ in their games, which was a goal for the entire team. The girls all had great serves, and moved well with the ball. Many members of Christ-King sports teams are very young, so it will take some time to develop in all aspects of the game. In the future, they would like to have set positions on both teams. As of now, everyone is practicing and playing all positions. This will continue until the coaches can decide where players fit in best.

Coach Wik is extremely happy about how the teams have progressed so far, and what they have been able to accomplish in these past couple of weeks! Upcoming games include a match against SMS on Oct. 8, and the CARA Tournament at SMS on Nov. 1.

The cross-country running team at Christ-King has done very well so far this season. Our runners have made it through another week of intense training and meets. Their last meet was Oct. 2, in Camrose, AB. “I’m very proud of all my runners. They worked very hard and all finished,” Coach Pinkoski stated after the meet. Although the weather was terrible, it was eclipsed by the satisfaction of finishing and the hot chocolate on the way home.

The runners representing Christ-King included: Charlotte Walker, Gage Bolstad, Jakob Hein, Hannah Canlas, and Jesse Jarmin. They all ran the 2km. Noah Greidanus, the youngest of the runners, ran 1.5km. The runners don’t know their standings yet, but in a couple weeks they should have their final results.

While being interviewed, one runner said he plans to work on pacing himself next race and hopes that the terrain isn’t so slippery or have as many hills. This runner also complimented Mrs. Pinkoski on her coaching skills, and he looks forward to continuing with her.

Upcoming events in Christ-King include a Thanksgiving assembly on Oct. 9, at 9:40 a.m. As well, the Junior-High class will be hosting their first dance of the year on Oct. 17. Any grade 6-9 students from the surrounding area are welcome to join in the fun! More details to follow, Stay tuned Stettler …

Classroom Sneak Peek

Taking a peak into our Kindergarten class this week, everybody is learning how to be unique. Their teacher Miss. Delhommeau is doing a wonderful job at demonstrating to them that everybody is different in their own way. They are also learning how to rhyme, and it’s taking them a short amount of time to master the skill!
