Earlier this month, the senior boys soccer team from Char-Lan DHS competed at a tournament in Kingston. The Crusaders, to a man, played with heavy hearts, in memory of a fellow student who had passed away just days earlier. Below is a photo of the team in the Limestone City; for details on the team's results, please see the April 17 issue of The Glengarry News. The high school soccer season locally is expected to kick off later this month, depending on weather and field conditions.
