Successful KES Invitational Wrestling Tournament

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jan 24, 2020 9:10:43 PM

Our King’s-Edgehill Wrestling team had a successful weekend to start the competitive season on January 18-19. This team, our biggest in many years, began the weekend on Saturday by hosting the 25 th  Annual King’s-Edgehill Invitational Wrestling Tournament. We had many new wrestlers, including  Chaz Faucher and  Owura Ofori  – two of the younger student-athletes in our School. They were led by our Seniors:   Bella-Turner Galaise, Aimee Cooper, and   captain Quinn Emery, who was on the disabled list but provided valuable coaching all day. Some performances of note included that of   Luis Reutner, our brand-new 111 kilogram German student who won his first-ever match with several 4-point takedowns despite a sore knee.   Maya Faucher  wrestled very technical matches and won second place against older opponents.   Victor Moreno  also had his first tournament and earned second place with his technical, aggressive style.   David Helyer  and   Aimee Cooper  each earned ‘Athlete of the Week’ with their GOLD medal wins. Our Senior girls missed first place by one point, and our Senior boys came in third even though they were missing six boys.
The winter storm did not stop our student-athletes from competing at the Nova Scotia Opens on Sunday. Although many wrestlers were missing, they made the most of it by getting in as much wrestling as possible.

We are fortunate to be in our second year of “Prep Girls Basketball” and our girls’ programme has been flourishing under the tutelage of our Head Coach and Director of Basketball, Marc Ffrench. Marc has been the driver of this Prep Programme and has seen a number of his players scouted in both the Canadian and American university basketball systems. The team continues to excel, and the girls work hard on and off the court. The team culture is one of commitment and dedication in all they do, including in the classroom.  When not in the gym with their coach, the girls have also been assisting and volunteering with other co-curricular programmes. Since arriving at KES, Marc has also been focused on his own professional development. Enhancing his personal coaching development pathway, he has been working through the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) and Basketball Canada’s highest available Coaching Certification level. Recently, Coach Ffrench has been recognized for his commitment to excellence by Basketball Nova Scotia with an exciting appointment: “Basketball Nova Scotia has selected Marc Ffrench to be the Head Coach of the 2020 Nova Scotia U16 Girls Provincial Team.

Our Master Bowlers

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Dec 15, 2019 5:05:11 PM

Greyson Corbett-Lumb  (Grade 9) was the Junior School victor at our annual Crawford Cup Bowling Competition. The event is hosted by our KES master bowler,   Dwayne Crawford.  Dwayne is our Finance Manager who works diligently each day in Marshall House; however, he loves to bowl and passed along some tips to our students. Greyson must have been listening very closely as he tied Mr. Crawford during the competition and only slipped behind him in the bowl-off. Greyson was the student with the best score this year and will have his named engraved on the trophy.   Ed O’Neill  (Grade 9) finished second.
