The Oak Park Raiders scorched the turf at wintry Investors Group Field on Tuesday night — and now are the 2017 Winnipeg High School Football League’s junior varsity champions.
Relentless on both sides of the ball, the Raiders scored early and often, cruising to a 44-6 triumph over the St. Paul’s Crusaders in the Home Run Sports Bowl on a chilly evening in Fort Garry.
Manitoba High Schools Athletic Association had a gorgeous fall day to hold the 2017 Provincial High School Cross Country Running Championships at Kilcona Park in Northeast Winnipeg Wednesday.
The event featured over 2,000 of the province's best and brightest runners competing in four divisions over the course of the afternoon; Junior Varsity boys and Junior Varsity girls as well as Varsity boys and Varsity girls.
Here are some of our favourite photos from the event shot by Winnipeg Free Press staff photographer Ruth Bonneville.
This updated design is a clean, bold, and fresh iteration of the Manitoba High Schools Athletic Association logo, drawing heavily from the rich history of the MHSAA brand. The redesign incorporates the most relevant hallmarks of the MHSAA logo throughout it’s evolution; The ‘MHSAA’ wordmark, the blue and gold colouring, and the hint of the previous oval shape provides a familiarity, maintaining the already well-established attributes of the MHSAA brand.
In an eﬀort to create a refreshed and current aesthetic, this iteration oﬀers a few subtle yet eﬀective adjustments. The slightly rounded corners, found in the letters throughout, adds a smooth and updated style to the logo while creating a uniﬁed feeling between the wordmark and the full lettering below. The base of the wordmark forms around the golden horizon shape, an homage to the gold oval shape found in logos past. The outer legs of the M and the ﬁnal A extend beyond the horizon, enclosing the entire shape into one consolidated piece.
With solid colouring, simple shapes, and clean lines both the logo and wordmark ensure seamless usage across all platforms, on screen and in print.
