Hawks take Bronze

Sports is a program at HHS that is valued and dear to many.  Coaches and athletes put in hundreds of hours to prepare for competition.  Sports helps prepare kids for life.  It keep them in school, it teaches them resiliancy and promotes healthy lifestyles.  


This season, our girls basketball team had to be a combined team, meaning that all girls, from grades 9-12 played on the same team.  Unlike larger schools, our senior team only had a few seniors, and many younger players.


Despite this challenge, our girls worked hard, earning a first place berth out of our division, to qualify for playoffs.  The day started with a heartbreaking loss to Manitouwadge.  Down most of the game, the girls came back, to fall short by one point.  This left them in the bronze medal match, against the combined Michipicoten and St. Joe's school, a team we had already played twice last week, with only one point between us.


Bouncing back from their heartbreaking loss, the girls took the ball in their hands and won the game by a score of 45-23, clearly demonstrating despite the close games last week, that the Hawks were clearly the better team!


So, on we go to the second season, with boys basketball and girls volleyball.  Our regular season will start shortly, with playoffs in mid-February!  Stay tuned for all the updates, here on www.hornepayne.com!!!

HHS Hawks Road trip to Chapleau

On Tuesday, October 15th, the HHS Hawks headed to Chapleau to play regular season games against Trillium and CHapelaeau high schools.  The boys came up against a tough squad at Trillium losing in straight sets, but recovered to beat CHS in two straight.  This year, CHS and Trillium have combined to form one team, and our girls beat them this afternoon.  This year, due to our school size, we have had to combine our junior and senior teams, so really, these are teams with grade 9's playing against students in grade 12 and even in a fifth year, so they hare hanging in there well!  Watch for updates next week, when we host Chapleau, and the following week, host and visit Wawa to play MHS and St. Joe's!
