Thornlea SS girls team enjoy YRAA championship win

The Thornlea Secondary School senior girls team celebrated its win at the 2023-2024 YRAA competition in February, allowing it to retain its York Region championship status.

The Ontario Federation of School Athletic Association (OFSAA) competition followed in early March at the Markham Pan Am Centre.

The top twenty teams in Ontario — including Thornlea SS and St. Roberts CHS — competed for the provincial championship.

The Oakville Trafalgar HS girls came out strong, showcasing their many skills, and took home first place at the OFSSA championship event. Thornlea won the antique bronze medal.

Thornlea teacher Steve Hutchison, who co-convened the tournament with Nicholas Georgio, was presented the prestigious OFSAA Leadership in Spirt Award from high school coach Jim Fletcher and former student Mia Wong.
