I'm Ally Hancock and this is my last day wearing my Del uniform. And if I'm being completely honest, that's a very heavy thought. It forces me to reflect on my Del experience, and when I do that, I am reminded of a saying that you have probably heard: "What makes a place truly great are not the walls themselves, but the people within them." This adequately describes my time at Del because if it were not for the friends I have made, or the staff who have supported me, I doubt I would have survived.
Highlights and Achievements
On Friday, June 2, Del celebrated the player and team achievements for the 2017 Spring season during the morning Athletic Assembly. Two individual awards are given out per team, one for Most Valuable Player and the other for the William Markle Award.
Congrats to all those athletes who found success with our team this season. We are very proud of what you've been able to achieve thus far this season. Good Luck and GO GET EM!!!
Scott went 9-11 from the FT line and that was pivotal in our opening game one-point win. He made a FT with under a minute to go and that ended up being the difference in the game. He came off the bench and played most of the game. It was his first senior game of his career as he is in Grade 11.

Chloe is a natural leader on our hockey team, helping to give other players tips and direction on and off the ice. She usually double shifts herself in order to be more productive on the ice. She scored two of our goals against Lakefield and comes to every practice despite being the player that plays the highest level of outside school hockey.

Through quiet leadership, Kevin has taken on a lead role worthy of a captainship on the Junior Boys Basketball Team. He has exhibited leadership qualities throughout the season, including leading the warm-ups, staying after practice to work on his jump shots and free throws, and was the leading scorer in the first game of the season, burying four three-point shots and finishing with 15 points against St. Andrew's.

Marissa has really shown a commitment this year during her last year of junior volleyball. She has not only become a well-rounded player with her passing and setting abilities, but she has also found her form in attack. Her spiking power and swing has a lot to do with her baseball background and she has really stepped up as a leader of this team. Mix that with her tremendous serving abilities and how vocal she is both on and off the court, she has really become an integral part of the team. We look forward to seeing Marissa develop as she makes the jump to the senior level.
-Coaches Iantosca & Pellegrino
Nicholas has been a team leader both in practices and in our games. Despite his high skill level, he continues to work hard during practice to improve his game and become a better all-around player. He has lead the U14 Boys Basketball team to two big wins in a row, putting them back into the playoff hunt.
This is Emma's second year on the U14 Girls Volleyball team. She is a strong athlete, who has developed her technique considerably from last year, however what stands out for Emma is her constant positive attitude. She is the first athlete to make sure that everyone on the team is always okay and she is the one always offering a joke to make others happy. She truly embodies all the qualities that make a tenacious athlete.
