The Senior Boys’ Hockey Team travelled to Greenwood College School on Wednesday to open the 2018-2019 season. In a game that was highly anticipated, both teams did not disappoint with their play. In a game that saw both teams have a number of scoring opportunities, Greenwood prevailed and was able to squeak out a 1-0 victory. The team played extremely well at both ends of the ice, especially Jayden Bennett, who played lights out and made over 25 saves in net, as well as Cole Eichler and Christina Campanelli who had every opportunity to score but just couldn’t buy a goal. The team’s next game is Wednesday, December 5 when they take on Royal St. George College School.
The Varsity Swim Team had their first meet of the season Tuesday, and it was an absolute success! All athletes challenged themselves and swam multiple events, some that were very outside of their comfort zones. We came home with a total of twelve personal bests, and fourteen top-eight finishes. Our siblings on the team deserve some special recognition. Sarah Douey swam two personal bests, winning a bronze in the 50 back, and Sam Douey raced three personal bests, finally breaking 30 seconds in the 50 free. Newcomers Jack and Will Magan, also posted some extremely fast times, dominating their 50 free and 100 IM events. All swimmers should be very proud of their first meet of the season.
