On February 6, the Havergal community showed immense school spirit at a special Hockey Day at Mattamy Athletic Centre (formerly Maple Leaf Gardens). The event began with a Junior School mini game against the Bishop Strachan School (BSS) Junior team, with our young Havergalians winning with a score of 4 to 0.
The Senior Choir class kicked off the U20 game with a beautiful version of O Canada, after which our Gators took to the ice. Students, faculty, staff, parents and Old Girls all dressed in their best green and gold cheered on our team as they played an exciting game. In the end, the Havergal team lost 4 to 0 to BSS, giving up the Hewitt Cup after a three-year winning streak. But the fans were not deterred and showed their spirit to the very end, shouting “we love you” to their Gators and then joining the team for a rousing edition of this year’s school cheer.
