John Abbott Tryouts Fall 2015

Mark your calendars, athletes, because John Abbott’s fall semester sports season is about to begin. Last year saw a great deal of athletic achievement from the John Abbott Islanders in a multitude of disciplines, including a 7th consecutive provincial title for John Abbott’s swim team, regional collegiate titles for the school’s baseball, lacrosse, female and male rugby teams, and the cheerleading team was the champion of division 4.2 in the Kick’s Athletics Celebration cheerleading competition. A new semester brings some new faces of course, and this semester’s tryouts are quickly approaching.
