Varsity Cross Country
Congratulations to the Varsity Cross Country team for their excellent performance at the Earle Bales “Gravity Grinder” cross country meet. The course was a challenging one, with two loops up the dreaded Earle Bales ski hill. Special mention goes to Senior Girl, Caiti Skain who dominated her division and took home first place with ease.

Junior Boys Soccer
The Junior CPC Boys soccer team hosted Lakefield Wednesday October 15th in what turned out to be a highly entertaining affair, full of goals, slide tackles, and timely goal keeping. In what Coach De Franco thought to be the boys best half of the year, CPC began the game with relentless pressing and ball possession, which eventually led to THREE goals by the end of the half. John Mainprize connected for two of the first half tallies, while Braden Harris closed off the half with a single.
Not to be outdone, though, Lakefield, a playoff contender, battled back in the second with two goals of their own, making the match a 3-2 affair with minutes left in the game. But CPC kept their composure and kept taking the game to Lakefield whenever it could, eventually preserving a well earned 3-2 victory for our boys in blue.
Our boys close off the regular season with a game at Trinity on the 22nd, as they move one step closer to a playoff spot.

Senior Boys Volleyball
On Wednesday, the senior boys’ volleyball team faced off against a tough opponent from Lakefield. After coming off their first loss of the season last week, the boys wanted to return to their winning ways. The game started out well, as we took the first set 25-19, but Lakefield stormed back to win the second set. With the match tied at 1 apiece, our boys pulled together to dominate the next two sets. Our victory came thanks to the strong serving of Aaron Jackson and Justin Memar, the defensive skills of Akib Shahjhan, and the setting of David Hagon and Cam Teboekhorst. With a record of 4 wins and 1 defeat, the boys are looking good heading into the playoffs with one regular season game left against Albert College.

Junior Boys Volleyball
On October 15th, the Jr. Boys volleyball team played a home game against TMS. After a tough first set of working out the kinks of our new offence, the team played a very close second and third set. The skillful serves from Noah Aaron and Rachael Pape gave us the lead, which was maintained by some amazing hits from Will Paisley and Jason Yang. Throughout the game, Gavin Wei, Erik Usher, and Tymon Weinstein kept us neck and neck with some excellent service receptions. Unfortunately, in the end TMS snuck in for the win.
