It’s a first

It’s a first: Carihi’s Senior Improv team made  history at the Canadian Improv Games North Island Cup, by being the first Campbell River team to win the competition.  The North Island Zone, which includes Carihi and teams from Vanier, Isfeld, Highland and Captain Meares, has a strong group of competitors from all schools, but the team from Carihi came out on top with strong performances from everyone. “It feels amazing to see our team grow over the past three years, and to be able to accomplish such a feat,” says Shane Murphy, a grade 12 student. The team is made up of mostly grade 12 students, so they have had several years to hone their skills, and they proved that hard work pays off with amazing characters and stories. “It’s great to take home the cup because it was our last shot at the North Island championship as most of the team is graduating!” says team member Abby Neufeld. The team performs Feb. 1-3 in Victoria, where they will try for the Vancouver Island Cup. - Photo submitted
