The Blackville Rundown: High School Assessment Week

This week, Reese and Anna talk to students and staff about what assessment week looks like this year at Blackville School. They also give some helpful tips on how to relieve stress while studying.

Timberwolves Diary: Stuck in Orange

Team News
With New Brunswick still in the orange, there is no hockey going on - only practices. So, right now with the uncertainty of what will happen and when game play action will start up again, teams are just staying in shape and practising for when play returns. 

It’s definitely a very weird situation just practicing and trying to create "game-like situations" to keep in "game-like" shape and stay as sharp as possible. With the second half of the season starting, new faces are joining the team and we added two new forwards for the second half of the season.

Personal News
With New Brunswick still in orange and no games going on, I’m just staying in the Miramichi and practising with the Timberwolves. I am not going to Bathurst at all due to the limitation of traveling from zone to zone. I’m hoping to see games return sometime in the next couple of weeks. Hopefully the active case count will clear up and things will improve. Until then, I am waiting just like all the other players until the puck drops again.
