What a spectacular season. Ms. Pescador and Mr. Finnison would like to congratulate the Junior Girls Basketball team for a competitive and fun season. Dante should be proud of their team and the commitment they showed on and off the court.

Last nights semi final game was a nail biter. The score was always within 2 points. Our fouls got us in trouble and in over time with no time on the clock and the other team with foul shot in their favour…Dante is finally defeated.

Dante ends their season arguably in third place. Their coaches are so very proud of each an every one of their players….

JUNIOR BOYS' SOCCER

Date: Nov 4/09
Teacher’s Name: MR. TURCO
Subject: JR. BOYS' SOCCER

WE ARE THE CHAMPS!!! That is right. Our Jr. Boys' soccer team traveled yesterday to the Hangar and played their championship game against a very technical team Newman. The team worked hard and opened the scoring in the first half with Raemon Mendoza sliding the ball in the corner from a nice cross by Reggie Amankwa. Our boys tried to move ahead by two goals but were not lucky so Newman bounced back to tie the game before the first half was over. In the second half, Dante had some chances to seal the victory but could not score the go ahead goal. Both teams were deadlock at one goal apiece and both teams had to play sudden death for the victory. Dante stormed out in the first extra 10 min. half and pulled away with another goal by Raemon Mendoza. As soon as the referee blew his whistle the coaches new it was game over and Dante won their 5th T.D.C.A.A. championship in seven years. The coaches Aldea, Turco, Festa, Matitchik and assistant Martinuzzi would like to congratulate the entire team for a fantastic season. Not only did they come second in the St. Jean de Brebuef tournament they also brought home the T.D.C.A.A. banner. Each player also received a medal for their efforts. If you see the players in the hall, do congratulate them for an outstanding season.

JUNIOR GIRLS BASKETBALL

DATE: Nov 4, 2009

A special congratulations goes to the Dante Junior Girls Basketball Program. After a decisive win over Monsignor Johnson 47 to 29, the girls capped off a perfect season finishing 8-0 and enter the playoffs as the first place team in the west. The girls receive a bye in the first round and play next Thursday.
Game Recap.
The first quarter was very close with both teams exchanging baskets easily. Once our defence settled down, the girls were able to clog the middle and rotate quickly enough on the perimeter to get many turnovers and quick transition points. Special mention to Sonia and Chervonne who were the point leaders, as well as Chantel and Mila who play great defence.
Way to go Girls!

Ill Skillz

Date: November 3, 2009

Congratulations to ill skillz for their excellent performance last Friday at Toronto's Best High School Dance Crew. The students went up against nine very skilled dance teams and held their own. Ill Skillz grabbed the audience's attention in the first round moving on to the finals and then finished in a very respectable 4th place against some very experienced and talented young dancers. Percy Johnson took home the title as well as the $500 prize money and St. Mary's from Ajax came in second place. Ill Skillz and Loretto College were neck and neck for third, but Loretto ended up taking the third place finish. Ms De Angelis wishes to congratulate all the Ill Skillz dancers for the hard work and committment.
Thanks
Ms. De Angelis

JUNIOR BOYS' SOCCER

Date: Nov 2/09
Teacher’s Name: MR. TURCO
Subject: JR. BOYS' SOCCER

What is 2^2+1 equal to? No, this is not a math test but if you answered 5, then you are correct. Five is the number of times the Jr. Boys' soccer team has advanced to the T.D.C.C.A finals within the last seven years. If you guessed that the team won, then you are correct again. Dante had to fight back as they were behind 1-0 early in the first half of their semi-final game against McLuhan last week Thursday. However, before the first half was over, Jacob Orellana scored from a corner kick and both teams were deadlocked 1-1. During the first 5 minutes of the second half Dante pulled ahead 2-1 and never looked back. Scoring the eventual winning goal was Christian Samaniego with a header. The coaches would like to congratulate the team from their come from behind win against a very hard working team McLuhan.

The team now moves on to the T.D.C.C.A. final championship game against Newman. This game is played tomorrow Tuesday Nov. 3 at the Hangar. Come out and cheer for our team. The players are reminded of this very important game tomorrow.

Period four teachers are asked to dismiss the players tomorrow at 1:35(from Beatrice) and 1:50(from Dante) in order to board the bus for this very important game.
