Athletics

orAnge Times 

The athletes and coaches were chomping at the bit to spread a little orAnge around the CSHSAA (Calgary Senior High School Athletic Association). 

The Women’s soccer team played their Hart out.  They made Div. II playoffs, but were thwarted in their attempts to move forward in the division.  Coaches Mme. Larocque and Mr. MacLean were quoted in saying “these girls left it all on the field every day.  We could not have asked for more from them.  What a pleasure to be with these girls day in and out”.  Congratulations to Kendal T who was selected onto the Grade 12 CSHSAA Soccer Allstar team.  

The gridiron was graced by the Abe football team once again.  Mr. Mo and his staff led the Jr. Team onto their field of dreams.  The season was ended in the playoffs, but kudos go out to the team and the coaching staff for another year representing the orAnge.  Our Sr Boys had a tough year playing up with the Big Dogs in Division I.  The train that was the Sr Abers came to a halt when they played Manning in the 1B finals. 

The Power group – also known as the Cross Country team had a phenomenal year.  The Abe Roadrunners capped off the CSHSAA season with silver all events (5) and Sr Boys won the City Banner.  The Abe contingent converged at Provincials in Red Deer with Chloe T. taking home the Provincial Gold – made even more marvelous in the fact that she was competing a level up, and was ahead of the nearest competitor by over 2 minutes. Coach Power had this to say, “I am so proud of these athletes.  They represented the orAnge so well this season. I can not wait to start this all over next year.”


Now onto volleyball… what an amazing season had by all.  The Jr. Boys went through the regular season without dropping a match.  Sadly, the Cinderella season came to a close when the boys lost out in playoffs.  The Jr. Girls also went through the season undefeated, culminating in bringing home the City Banner with a dominate win over the Trojans.  Next are the Sr. Boys, again, they destroyed the competition, dropping 2 sets in the whole season.  The juggernaut team of Abe went on to add to the banner problem at Abe.  The Sr. Girls played one of the best come back games of the century in the semi finals vs Western, and clawed their way back from a 13-8 deficit to go onto the finals.  Here they left nothing to chance as they also brought home the Banner. 

The Sr. Boys and Girls continued their season by heading to Provincials.  Both teams represented Abe well, with the girls taking home the bronze plaque and the boys taking a back to back Provincial win. 

Coach Fosti was quoted stating, “At this rate, we will need another gym, or just another wall to hold all the banners”.  So true Fosti, so true!


We are happy that parents and siblings are allowed back in the stands.  Seeing the support of the orAnge at our home means the world to all of the athletes and coaches. 

Stay tuned and Basketball and Wrestling have started their seasons. 

 

Athlete Highlight - Chloe T

Chloe is a Grade 11 phenome at Abe.  In the fall, Chloe represented Abe on the Sr. Girls Cross Country Team.  Chloe finished the regular season with a Gold Medal at Cities.  It did not take long for Chloe to pack her bags to head to Red Deer to represent Abe and Calgary at the Provincials, where she capped off her Grade 11 year with a provincial gold.

Last month, Chloe was in Ottawa to compete in the U18 Cross Country Nationals.  In harsh running conditions, Chloe ended up 6 overall. 

If you would like to meet this amazing athlete, you can find her in an Abe jersey on the basketball court.  Chloe is currently playing for the orAnge Jr. Women’s basketball team. Congrats Chloe.

Welcome to orAnge nation.

Julie Farquhar and myself, Kelly Lloyd would like to welcome you to our House of orAnge. 

Aberhart athletics is built on our history.  Aberhart is recognized throughout the CBE and across the province as a force to be reckoned with.  

The athletes that come to ABE and compete for the orAnge are a special group.  At ABE, we emphasize family.  We value the relationships built within the walls of the school, the gridiron, the pool, the pitch, the mat and the track. 

We value athleticism, and are ecstatic to work with all our students to support and develop their love of the sport.  At ABE we offer a wide variety of team and

Individual sports through the CSHSAA, as well as being one of the only schools in the CBE to offer ASAA sanctioned sports (curling, ultimate and golf). 

We are fortunate to have a phenomenal coaching staff, both in school and community.  Through hard work and effort, our Aberhart athletes have raised multiple banners in the ABE gym. 

Last year alone our teams brought home 10 banners, before COVID shut down athletics. 

 As great as the banners are, we are most proud of the individual accomplishments of our teams.  The first provincial win of our Sr. Boys Volleyball team and the Sr. Boys Basketball teams bid to get a bid into the Provincial tournament. The Cross Country team won the provincial's, taking away a 25 year banner run for Harry Ainley.  Our curling team winning the first Cities and Bronze at the first provincials CSHSAA hosted since 1972 (which was won by ABE). The Track team stirring fear at Provincials with the team cry - “ABER, ABER, ABER, HART, HART, HAR" – resonating across the field and then the Sr. boys Soccer team dedicating a goal to a player's mom; and celebrating that goal as a team. The list goes on. 

The ABE family is also proud of the accomplishments of our athletes.  Many of our athletes get the opportunity to play at College and University with scholarships across Canada and the USA.  We are also excited to watch our athletes wearing the leaf at the National and Olympic level. 

We thank you for choosing to be a part of the ABE family.  We welcome you with open arms.  If you have any questions about our program, please do not hesitate to contact us.  We cannot wait to meet you.

Yours in orAnge

Julie Farquhar (jafarquhar@cbe.ab.ca) and Kelly Lloyd (krlloyd@cbe.ab.ca)


Priceless 

Being part of the first provincial banner for Abe boys in our 60 year history was the best moment.  The win in volleyball against Scona in the final was priceless.  I will never forget the bus drive home reveling in the win with the girls and coaches. 

Wicked 

Thank you Mr Power for your tireless coaching with the cross country team. Bringing home the junior girls banner and seeing my name on the wall is a wicked feeling every time I see it.

Most Fun 

Playing in the semi final Division 1 senior men's basketball game at Bishop McNally in the basketball with the 300 screaming fans was the most fun I had playing a game and we beat COVID by 1 week.

Launch a spear 

Mr. Beland connects the track team so well. It is an individual sport that is made to feel like a team sport.  I hope our COVID numbers drop and schools can start sports again so I can launch a spear and jump over a 3 m bar using a long pole!



Golf
