Jacob Hespeler Hawks head coach Mark Frayne and his players smile for the camera following their championship victory at the CWOSSA triple-A volleyball championship and Hawks receiver Carlton Smith celebrates his touchdown with teammates Owen Prutton and Simon Beeksma during the WCSSAA senior football championship.
I'm guessing there are no shortage of smiles today at Jacob Hespeler Secondary School.
The Cambridge school continued its week to remember on Thursday with a WCSSAA championship by the senior boys football team and CWOSSA triple-A volleyball championships for its senior and junior boys teams.
And the week's not over yet.
The senior girls basketball team is competing at the CWOSSA triple-A championship and the junior boys football team is in the A division championship on Saturday.
It's a great way to rebound from a week that started with back-to-back-to-back disappointment as the volleyball and basketball teams came up short in WCSSAA championship games.

The Resurrection Phoenix can hold their heads high after an oustanding season in the WCSSAA senior boys football league.
The championship final really could have gone either way but the Hawks came through when it mattered most and the Phoenix didn't.
Simple as that.
On this night, the better team won.

And yes, I picked the wrong team to win for the third straight year but let's no compare me to Sports Illustrated just yet.
I don't believe in jinxes.
Seriously, I had Rez folks blaming me for last night's defeat and Jacob Hespeler folks pleading with me to pick John F. Ross in Tuesday's CWOSSA semifinal.
If I had the kind of power, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys would never win again.
For the record, I picked 67 games this season and finished with a 52-15 record, or a 78 per cent success rate.
