Sports Roundup (Dec. 19)

On December 16th, the Junior Girls Volleyball team played their first game of the season against Bayview Glen. The girls started off strong with an amazing first set score of 25-12, dominating over the opposing team with stellar teamwork and powerful serves. After stumbling with points lost in the second set, the girls pushed through. With some powerful serves from Taige Matosas-Adderly and Ella Okubasu, crucial middle blocks from Saleah Joseph, support from the precise sets of Chiara Codron and Bryn Wensley and a great effort from the rest of the team, the girls claimed victory in the third and fourth sets to win the game with a score of 3-1. Our next game is in the new year against TMS School and Albert College. Great start to the season girls, see photos!

On December 16th, the U-14 Boys Div 3 Basketball team traveled to The York School to play in their fourth game of the season. The team got off to a great start and never looked back. With strong play from Christain Baldasarra, Nikita Starov,  Ashe McEwan, and  Tyler Elwood, we pulled out a 40-19 victory over TYS.

More on December 16th, the CPC U14 D1 Boys Basketball team won another game against a formidable opponent.  Your CPC lions started off with a bang, connecting on a mixture of 3’s and layups. The boys jumped out to 13- 6 lead at the end of the first quarter and went into the half with a score of 25-18.  In the second half,  the two teams were trading baskets and CPC was unable to fully extend the lead until the late 4th quarter where Aiden Nunes hit some big shots and Marcus Green sealed the deal with a strong attack. It was a very impressive defensive game for the lions as they held their opponents to less 33. The final score was 45-33 with great contributions from  Marcus Green who had 19 points, Aiden Nunes with 10, Jay Codron with 9 points and 4 and 3 respectively from Coen and Geoffrey. Great team win!

The Senior Boys Prep Basketball team went on the road Tuesday night and picked up a big victory 90-72 over Thornlea Prep. The boys started off hot and extended their lead to 18 at halftime, 49-31. Thornlea made a couple of runs in the 3rd quarter, reducing the lead to 12 points on two occasions, but the Lions didn’t let up and picked up a huge win.

The Senior boys were paced by Elijah Fisher with 26 points, while Trevon Thomas contributed 23. Romad Dean posted yet another double-double with 13 points and 15 rebounds. The game finished off the Lions pre-holiday break schedule with a much needed win. The Senior boys will head to Memphis after the New Year to take on several top US high school teams.

The Varsity Girls Hockey team travelled to Hamilton on the 16th, and played a hard fought game against an aggressive Hillfield Strathallan College team. They were put to the test and had to really dig deep in order to gain any sort of advantage. With a pair of goals in the first period by Neely Van Volsen the girls picked up steam and kept battling. To start the second period, Olivia Chodat came off the bench from an injury and picked up a goal, which was then followed up by an impressive show of dekes by Jenna Smellie to put in another. The girls faced penalty troubles in the third, however, they did not stop pushing forward – Karianne Engelbert put in the final goal short handed early in the third to give the girls the 5-0 victory. Shoutouts go out to Mya Lucifora who displayed her athleticism in the net and grabbing her fifth consecutive shutout.  See photos!

The girls will be back in action again in the new year going up against Bishop Strachan School on January 13th. Keep it up lady lions!

Crestwood’s Division 2 curling teams travelled to Leaside Curling Club on Monday for their first games of the season against the squads from Toronto French School. While both teams were unsuccessful in their attempts to defeat the skilled squads from TFS, there were more than a few highlights to suggest that this year’s D2 Curling season is going to be jam-packed with excitement. Good job curlers, and we will see you in the new year!
