NORTH DURHAM: With warmer weather finally on the way this week, the spring season for local high school sports will be heating up in North Durham, as LOSSA regular season action gets underway for most sports.
Girls rugby is first out of the gate, on Wednesday, April 24th, with the Junior and Senior teams in action for Port Perry and Uxbridge. Starting at 2 p.m., Uxbridge will host a doubleheader against Ajax, while the Rebels will trek to Pickering for the season-opening matches.
The Tigers and Rebels will both be looking for strong seasons, with two entires, the local league granted to the OFSAA provincial championships, to be held in Clarington in early June. Uxbridge claimed bronze medals at last year’s OFSAA championship.
Boys rugby is part of a busy Friday, April 26th, with the Tigers travelling to Donald Wilson SS in Whitby, and the Rebels playing host to Ajax, in Port Perry.
The co-ed ultimate frisbee season also starts on Friday, with Uxbridge at Dunbarton in Pickering for a doubleheader against the host Spartans and Pickering HS. The team from Port Perry will be in Courtice to take on Anderson (Whitby) and Pereyma (Oshawa).
Closing out a busy Friday is the first of four LOSSA Mountain Biking events, all of which are held in Uxbridge Township, at Skytop, with the races getting started at 2 p.m.
