  • Male Co-Athletes of the Week: Kyle Parlee , Grade 11 Guard, and Dyllin Bernard, Grade 10 Forward, were instrumental in the Vikings’ final push into the playoffs. Their hard word in practice, dedication to improving their skills and their determination in our last regular season games helped to lift the team into the AA playoffs, and a quarter final upset of Charlottetown Rural last week.  Their effort continued into the Provincial Championship tournament, where their play got the Vikings to within one point of the AA bronze medal before falling to Morell 70-69 on Wednesday.   A special thanks to Team Manager, Kenny Richard, for helping the team prepare for games, and the Coaches with video and practice setup. Congratulations to all members on the Men’s Basketball team for a fine season.
