Athletics: Badminton

The Badminton team was down in Medicine Hat last weekend for Provincials, and it was a great weekend!


Vicky Deng took home a Silver Medal in a very exciting Gold Medal Match. She lost to a girl who is ranked #5 in Canada, so watch for Vicky on the national stage soon! It was her only loss of the tournament; she didn’t even lose a set until the Gold Medal Game. Awesome job, Vicky!!


Kya Pritchard and Ryder Jackson won the Intermediate Mixed Doubles Division B Gold Medal. Very well done you two!!


The other players either lost in the quarter finals or in the bronze medal matches, but they still played very well against some tough competition! Here are the other results:


  • Ella Black and Blake Hyshka - lost in the quarter finals
  • Brooklyn Melnyk and Nicca Laya - placed 4th in Division B
  • Jotham Jim and Samuel Koett - lost in the quarter finals


Overall, it was a great weekend and the students had a blast. A huge thank you to Dana Woroniuk, Ike Hanna, Ross Heidt, and our community coaches Ngan Nguyen, Leroy Stanisclaus for their commitments to the Notre Dame Badminton Team! It was a great season and we are all looking forward to next year!



GOOOO COUGS!!!!

Ten Peaks Entrepreneurship Summer Camps

Ten Peaks Entrepreneurship Summer Camps are for student’s grades 9 – 12 to explore their passion and ideas and help them turn them from an idea to action. Not your typical entrepreneurship camp, this 5 day, in-person camp at the Red Deer Polytechnic on July 4 - 8 or Calgary August 8 - 12, will allow students to discover their inner innovator.


Students will work in teams to develop their own new venture or social enterprise and end the week with a “Dragon’s Den”esque pitch to local entrepreneurs. Ten Peaks partnered with RDP, Alberta Innovates and the University of Calgary’s Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation to host these camps.


Join us for an Introduction to Entrepreneurial Thinking in Action Camp. Register for July 4 – 8 at Red Deer Polytechnic or August 8 – 12 in Calgary. https://www.10peaks.ca/camps
