The LCVI basketball team consists of 5 senior students, Robby, Dallas, Conner, Brandon, and Conner. Each player on this team demonstrates optimism, positivity, determination, communication and team work skills. In every sport they play each one of these young men display kindness, respect and humility and are dedicated to enriching their lives through team sports.
The LCVI basketball team has been chasing the gold medal for three years; their first provincial games took place in Belleville, ON in 2016 – they practiced for weeks before the provincial qualifier, where they faced competitive and skilled teams. They did not make the Provincial Games that year, but left feeling determined and positive about the next year. They practiced harder the next year, securing a spot at the Provincial Games in Peterborough. During that tournament they played hard and faced competitive teams from all over Ontario. They made it to the gold medal game where they lost by just two points, taking home the silver medal. Although they were proud, they were even more determined to win that gold! Most of these athletes will be graduating this school year, making the Youth Games their last. Each player is determined to reach their goal and bring home that gold medal!
