Athletes of the Week (April 2018)

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 19, 2018 1:45:00 PM

“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 23 – April 29

Senior Boys - Evan Logan performed exceptionally well during the Senior Boys Rugby team's close win against Avon View on May 3. Evan led a spirited defense and took the ball with speed every time he was directly involved in the play. We hope the team finds inspiration in his performance during their games against Horton and Avon View on the 10th and 17th.

Kings-Hants District Track and Field Championships

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 17, 2018 7:04:00 PM

Tuesday, May 15 th, on Day 1 of the Kings-Hants District Championships, the weather story would have been that our faces were red from a burning sun, on Wednesday our faces were red from a cold north wind.  Such is Nova Scotia weather.  There is also a third reason why there were so many ruddy complexions: our students ran, threw and jumped with all their effort.  One of the thoughts which sprung to mind several times over the last two days as I watched many different KES athletes compete was just how much they were trying, how much they were giving all they had to the last meter.  (For a handful I did think – couldn’t they do this in practice?!)  There is an inordinate amount of practice time that goes into a 100m sprint, and the ratio is even worse for a split second throw or jump.  Better yet, if you do not perform well in that short moment of time, then you have no referee, no foul-committing player and no teammate to blame.  With rare exception it’s all on you.  This is one of the many reasons I love track and field – there is no excuse to hide behind (and not for a coach, either).  I think the happy side of this brutality is that it brings the team together.  I heard many rounds of cheering and saw plenty of support.  Oh, and I also received compliments by others more than once that "I could only see a sea of KES students moving the hurdles and the high jump mats (heavy and large)”.  That is the best of feedback.

This past weekend our Senior Girls Rugby team loaded the bus and headed across the Confederation Bridge to take part in the annual David Voye Memorial Tournament hosted at Three Oakes Secondary High in Summerside, PEI. With our Junior students away with their class trips and our IB students busy with exams, we travelled with an abridged roster on the trip, but the girls who did come with us came with focus, ferocity, and lots smiles.

ACIS Badminton Tournament Results

King’s-Edgehill School Junior and Senior students recently competed in the annual ACIS Badminton Tournament in Halifax. For most of our players, it was their very first time taking part in a competitive event in this sport, and it was a wonderful opportunity for them to test their skills. Our students demonstrated commitment to their sport and they conducted themselves admirably, both on and off the court – and had fun, in the process!

Rugby Star Commits to uOttawa

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 1, 2018 7:00:00 AM

We are happy to announce that a third member of our Senior Girls Rugby team, Amy Marchand-Dion, has committed to study and play rugby with the defending national champions from the University of Ottawa. Since her arrival on campus in Grade 10, Amy has been dominant on the soccer and rugby pitch while also being a key contributor to our Senior Girls Basketball team. Amy’s athleticism is matched only by her poise and maturity on the field, and it is as though we have another coach on the field thanks to her game awareness.

Girls Rothesay Rugbyfest

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 30, 2018 6:00:00 PM


This past weekend, the Senior Girls Rugby team travelled to Rothesay Netherwood to compete in their annual Rugbyfest tournament and defend the title that we had won last year. After a bus ride filled with many laughs, some off-key songs, and some show-stopping dance moves, the girls arrived in Rothesay ready to get down to business.

In our first game of the tournament, the girls made it clear that they were ready for their competition. The girls cruised to a 49-15 victory over Kennebecasis Valley High with all 28 girls playing significant minutes. First year player,   Georgia Porter  was definitely the bright spot as she scored 3 trys and fellow Grade 12 player   Sarah Cooney  was named our player of the game for her hard running and tough defensive play.

The next day, our girls opened against a tough squad from North Hastings in Ontario, but again looked comfortable as they won 36-5 with Grade 12 center   Heather Stanton  scoring twice and winning player of the game. In our second game of the day on Saturday, the girls faced a very physical team and came out on the wrong side of a 7-5 score. Co-captain   Kenzie Cecchetto  was relentless all game long, scored our only try, and was named our player of the game.

Although we weren’t playing in the gold medal game, our girls were focused and ready as they faced Lockview High School in the third place game. Although the game was back and forth, the girls kept their composure and finished the tournament with a 10-0 victory. Grade 9 student   Angela Funes  scored the game-winning try and was awarded the tiara as player of the game.

All in all the weekend was a very positive one with great experiences both on and off the pitch! The girls were very thankful for   Ms Kat Guhr  who travelled with the team for the weekend, as well as our driver   Cliffwho not only put up with our singing, but got us there and back safely.
