CPC Takes Over at Kawartha Classic


The Crestwood Junior Boys’ basketball team won the 64 team Kawartha Classic over the past weekend, winning 5 games over the course of two days. The boys got off to a hot start last Friday with wins over Crestwood Secondary School out of Peterborough and Maxwell Heights. On Saturday, the Lions defeated WC Kennedy in the morning before taking down a tough Notre Dame Ajax team in the semi-finals. The finals set up a rematch with Pine Ridge, who the Junior Lions defeated 111-96 in an NJC game a month ago.   The championship game was back and forth until a big Crestwood run at the end of the 3rd quarter put Lions up 4 heading into the 4th quarter. The Lions built their lead to double-digits and then held on for an 83-72 win. The win was highlighted by back-to-back dunks by Elijah Fisher and Immanuel Oludele in the final minutes of the game. The Lions were led by Elijah Fisher’s 29 points and Immanuel Oludele’s 20. Kailon Nicholls added 15 points along with some terrific defense, while Matai Baptiste pitched in 12. The championship was a complete team victory as many players put in big minutes over the course of the weekend.  Let’s go Lions!

The U14 D1 Boys basketball team hosted UCC Wednesday. The Lions came out to a strong start that led to 19-7 first quarter. The lions were fuelled by intense full court pressure and great ball movement, which helped the lions walk into halftime with a score of 33-15. The boys continued to play great defence and share the ball throughout the second half, which helped propel them to a 61-33 victory over UCC.   Lions were led by Mikkel Tyne’s 18 , Marcus Green’s 16 and Jack Wu’s 8 points.  This was a great team win for the Lions, almost every player got on the scoresheet, and the boys that did not, found other ways to impact the game. The U14 Boys hold a 6-0 record and hope to remain undefeated throughout the remainder of the season.


Monday afternoon, the U-14 Curling team travelled to Donalda Club for their final regular season game against The Montcrest School.  Montcrest scored a point with last rock in the first end, but Crestwood’s team, skipped by Ally Sone, struck back with 2 points in the second, then four straight steals en route to a commanding 10-1 win.  Mr. Jull wants to congratulate all players for a strong game!  The team finishes third in their division and qualifies for the Page Playoff games next Tuesday.
Our Varsity Boys played against a very experienced Havergal curling team, with Snow Ren making his debut as Skip — and already showing poise under pressure with clutch final shots to take away big points from the opposition in multiple ends. Everyone stayed focused and played a solid game until the end, making their coaches all very proud of how they showed up against this difficult team. Good curling, boys!  Our Open Curlers also played a Havergal team, with Will Dennison as Skip and Peter Gelgor in his second game as Vice. Our team was making a large percentage of their shots, and their great tactical shot calls and team communication gave them the rock positions they needed to dominate their opponents. Well played, team!
