Students of the Game blog: Hawks hoopsters finding their game

I'm definitely happy to say that the W.J. Mouat Hawks are starting to get our game back.

The Abbotsford News’s high school sports blog, Students of the Game, features local athletes sharing their experiences and unique perspectives. Today, W.J. Mouat multi-sport athlete Callum Pilgrim discusses her team’s determination to snap out of a recent slump.

I’m definitely happy to say that the W.J. Mouat Hawks are starting to get our game back.

After a very tough loss against our rivals MEI in the finals of the Abbotsford Police City Tournament, we knew we had to step up our game quite a bit. After that final game and going into our next event, ‘A Tournament for Emily’ in Port Coquitlam, the team’s confidence had gone down a lot! Losing three out of four games in the tourney didn’t really help that much either.

During the Christmas break we have been practicing hard and staying in shape so that come January, we can play like our old selves. We are also very excited to play MEI again just to show them what our team is really capable of!
