I Got You, Z

This game was not like any other the St. Joseph’s Jaguars had played before. This one was for their teammate. The senior boys basketball team turned a regular-season matchup with the St. Peter’s Panthers into a special fundraiser and event in support of Zecharyah Jaghmohan, a Grade 12 student and hoopster who was involved in a serious car crash a few months ago. “It’s serious injuries, so he’s been recovering at Sunnybrook (Hospital),” said St. Joseph’s principal Joe Timmins. “It’s significant for us here because he’s a well-known student (and) well networked with his peers, having played football and...

It was a long time coming for the St. Peter’s Panthers. The Barrie school swept the Monsignor Clair Cup, winning both the girls and boys championships in early December. The girls’ squad had to come from behind to defeat the St. Joseph’s Jaguars in the semifinals before knocking off the defending champion, St. Joan of Arc Knights, 3-1 in the final. The route for the boys’ team was no easier. They bounced the Jaguars 3-0, before having to come from behind late in the final against St. Joan of Arc to force a shootout. From there, the Panthers exorcised...
