Hats off to Eddie "the Machine" Masic in the triple jump, Abraham "the rocket launcher" Falls in the Javelin and Anna "faster that a hummingbird" Holota in the 800 and 1500. Athlete of the meet was Connor "the renaissance man" Harrision who, after setting two massive personal best in the 400, came back with with a strong anchor-leg in the 4 by 400 relay to help his team defeat cross-town rivals Mouat. Congrats all. All team members must see Mr. Wight sometime today.

Yale Rugby Boys Back From UK Tour!
The Yale Senior Boys rugby squad just returned from a very successful tour of England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. The squad of twenty-eight flew out on March 16th and began their trip in London England. They visited the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Piccadilly Circus, and the Parliament Buildings. After a brief stay in London the team traveled to Rugby, England and were hosted by Lawrence Sheriff Grammar School. The team was given a walking tour of Rugby School, where William Webb Ellis picked up a soccer ball in PE class and decided to run with it. This later became the game of rugby. The team played their first game against Lawrence Sheriff School, which was a very close match that saw Yale fall 27-25.
After a great stay in England, the team traveled to Wales. There was a brief stop in the capital city of Cardiff and then they arrived at Thomas Picton School in Haverfordwest, Wales. The team did a day trip to St David's Cathedral and went to White Sands beach on the Welsh coastline. The team's second game against Picton school was played in a downpour and high winds. The team lost 22-12 in a very sloppy game by both sides.
The next stop for the squad was in Tenby, Wales. Before arriving at Greenhill School though, the team went to Pembroke Castle, which was first built in 1093. The team were also taken to Swansea to watch a professional game of rugby in Liberty Stadium. There were two scheduled games against Greenhill. In the first game Yale won 19-12 in a hard fought match. In the second game Yale dominated and won 33-10. Spencer Loughlin scored two tries and Travis Murray was the Man of the Match.
The team then crossed the Irish Sea to Ireland. They were given some free time in Dublin before meeting their hosts in Downpatrick, Norther Ireland. The team were able to have a full day in Belfast, visiting the Freedom Wall and the Titanic Exhibit. The last game on tour the Lions fell to Down High, which was a very good side that beat Yale 22-5. On the last day of tour the team visited the North Coast and saw Giant's Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge.
The boys made some lasting friendships and learned a lot about the game of rugby to get them ready for the season.

Yale Students Staying Up Late For A Good Cause!
On Friday night, about 300 enthusiastic students from Yale Secondary showed up for the school’s second annual all-night fundraising event, Live to Give.
Students rotated through 10 activity rooms throughout the building, including Hunger Games-themed activities, glow-in-the-dark dodgeball, a candy room, a mechanical bull ride and more.
Each student that attended had to raise at least $50, which will go towards building schools in Sierra Leone via the Canadian charity organization Free the Children.
