Varsity Ski Teams Hit the Slopes

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Mar 5, 2018 8:07:47 AM

The varsity ski team completed their dryland season in December and we returned to school in January with a great amount of snow. Mother Nature has provided a very strange winter with lows enough to make snow, and then highs with rain washing that snow away. As always, the ski team persisted with training and went into the first two races of the season in good shape, capturing many personal moments of growth and team conquests. We look forward to the last two weeks of the season with race #3 on Tuesday, February 27, and Provincials on Wednesday, March 7.

Boys Prep Hockey at Newbridge Showcase

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Feb 26, 2018 11:10:00 PM

Our U16 Boys Prep Hockey Team competed in the last showcase for the season hosted by Newbridge Academy at the Dartmouth 4 Pad. The team faced some tough competition but had a successful weekend with a 2-1-1 finish. Game one played out with no score until Assistant Captain James MacGregor deked out Blyth Cougars goalie with 2.6 seconds left in the game. An instant celly erupted with Isaac Wilson and Will Keating, who assisted McGregor’s goal. Goalie Rustam Kulizade earned the shutout. Still competing against Blyth (Warriors) in the second game only a few hours later, KES battled with 100% effort until the end, falling short in overtime 3-2. Nigel Morris opened the scoring for KES with Ryan Costello tying up the game towards the end of the second period. Marshall Plandowski, James MacGregor, Noah Wilson and Isaac Wilsoneach had an assist in game two. 

Next match up was a competitive game against rivals Bishops College. This early Saturday morning game brought out plenty of fans including students, teachers and family. KES entered the second period behind 1-0, however, MacGregor evened the score while Plandowski and Keegan Gilbert brought the team ahead by two. Josh Hunt, Noah Wilson, Will Keating, and Isaac Wilson all had assists in this game. 

The last and final meeting brought the only loss for the weekend against Newbridge Academy. The players and coaches certainly appreciated the support from fans, especially their family members. This was the first weekend of the season that each player had at least one family member travel to cheer them on in game action while other family members and friends still had the opportunity to show support via Facebook live.

The boys head back for a week of practice at the Windsor Arena before they venture out for their longest road trip to date on February 28th. This takes them to the Prep School Hockey Federation League Championship in Rockland, Ontario on March 2-4, followed by a few days of practice and preparation in the quiet suburbs of Ontario before heading to downtown Toronto for the Prep School National Championship at Upper Canada College March 8-11.

Dear KES Family:

Although there has been tremendous drama and excitement this week about the Olympics in Korea, and at KES we have celebrated all our national heroes - be they Mexican cross-country skiers, German hockey players, Russian figure skaters, Japanese skiers, and all our diverse national and Canadian Olympians - there is another movement taking place south of our border worth paying attention to.
