athlete of the week9“Athletes of the Week” (AOW) are selected based on athletic performance and sportsmanship. Positive sporting behaviour is valued at KES and integral to our Athletic Philosophy and School Mission Statement emphasizing gentleness and learning and dignity and respect.

For the week of April 8th – April 14th 

Junior Boy - As a junior, Justin Day proved himself an inestimable aspirant of the Senior Boys' Rugby team over the weekend as they played against some of the stoutest competition in the province, including defending champions Northumberland High School. He helped our boys secure a 4-0 record by playing in various positions and performing well in set pieces and in open play. We're looking forward to seeing more from Justin in the coming months and years. Keep up the impressive work, Justin!

Junior Girl - Cons Rubin has impressed both her teammates and her coaches with her strong play on the pitch. Despite being very new to the game, she has showed great progress so far. In the annual Icebreaker tournament, Cons played a number of different positions for us and very few people would have known how new she was to the game. We look forward to Cons’ continued progression as the season continues. Excellent work, Cons!

Senior Girl - Although the rugby season has just begun, Courtney Ells has showed why she is one of the top players in the province. In our first league game vs the tough Park View team, Courtney was fantastic and scored three trys in her first ever game in a KES uniform! Later that weekend, Courtney was a force on the pitch at the annual Icebreaker tournament and led our squad on both attack and defense. Keep up the great work, Courtney!

Senior Boy - Evan Logan provided the requisite leadership for the Senior Boys' Rugby team to achieve such great success during the annual Icebreaker tournament on Saturday. The boys utilized almost the exact strategy they had worked so hard to learn in the previous several weeks' training and, as a result, came home with a 4-0 record against some of the top teams in the province. The example Evan set, by playing out of position, providing excellent delivery, and stealing many balls on defense, was a big part of those wins. Good work, Evan!

For the Week of April 15th – April 21st 

Junior Boy - Carter Short is an important element of his Ultimate Frisbee teams’ success. His versatile and accurate throw have made him a great handler, and he is always looking for the long pass. Carter is a sportsman and a strong competitor, regularly testing the limits of his throw and hustling to support his teammates at every opportunity. He will be a great asset to his team as they compete in the ACIS Ultimate Tournament this week. Well done, Carter.

Junior Girl - Maya Faucher is proving to be a force on the Senior Girls’ Rugby team so far this year. Although she missed our first game of the week due to her leading role in our Junior School Musical, she was all over the pitch in our second game of the week versus Horton. Despite being a Grade 9 student, it is clear that Maya will factor prominently in the Senior Girls’ success this season thanks to her athleticism and desire to improve. Great work, Maya!

Senior Girl - Brittany Pieroway has been an absolute force so far on the pitch for the Senior Girls’ Rugby team. This past week she played extremely well in our two league games. In our first game of the week, Brittany was a defensive stalwart all game long, played well with ball in hand, and showed excellent support for her teammates and scored her first try of the year on an excellent play. In our second game of the week, Brittany stepped up and provided exceptional leadership despite finishing on the losing end of our game. Great work, Brittany!

Senior Boy - Jayden Lam won the Regional Badminton Championships, along with his doubles partner Jerry. Their steady team work and inspired playmaking was on display throughout the competition. They advanced to the Provincials and, despite strong play, fell to the eventual Provincial Champions in pool play and did not medal. Jayden is a very gifted player who was steady throughout the competition. Well done, Jayden.
