Congrats to the IHC Floorball Winners

By Lydia Barsawme

Last week we had our IHC Floorball and it was a great event! It’s always nice to see students come together and show good sportsmanship, enjoy a good sport and cheer each other on. Our first IHC was an all school event, so this was the first real house team vs house team and although we had to keep the crowd small they were still great. Congrats again to Russell ell House for their big win and for Pavlov coming in a close second!
