First Wrestling Tournament of the Season

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jan 8, 2019 7:00:00 AM

Four members of our King's-Edgehill wrestling team spent the first day of their Christmas break competing at the Annual Hants East Wrestling Tournament on Saturday, December 15th. Quinn Emery, Camryn Kleynhans, Callum Lovelace, and David McCurdy made time during the busy examination schedule to prepare for this optional tournament. Quinn, returning very strong from last season after spending a lot of time training in the weight room in the interim, competed through discomfort in his shoulder to win third place in a tough class. Camryn, a returning provincial champion, won GOLD in a best two out of three series against a seasoned opponent. She could have taken first place in two matches, but she took this opportunity to try new moves and wrestle a more technical style. David, a brand new wrestler, lent his considerable fitness, intellect, and power to his fledgling technical skills to compete in a very tough bracket with five other competitors, all of whom were bigger than him. We are confident that David, with lots more work, will dominate the Senior boys' 100 kilogram class. Callum wrestled an extremely aggressive style against very talented opposition, but he was pulled from competition after an injury. 

We are confident that the success our small selection of wrestlers had in Hants East is but a minor prelude to the success our entire team will have at our 23rd Annual Wrestling Tournament at King's-Edgehill on January 19 and beyond.

Our Prep team arrived at Kents Hill School, outside of Augusta, Maine, in the dead of night...okay, it was 6:00pm, but it was dark as midnight. The campus is incredible, 400 acres for 240 students from Grades 9 to 12 (and post grads)!

Western Region Cross Country Champs

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Oct 31, 2018 7:52:24 AM

Our Senior Girls team won another Championship Banner with an astounding 21 points (the lowest total of the six winning teams today).  The girls were led across the finish line by soccer-rugby-wrestling-cross country-cross fit superstar athlete,   Tea Racozzi ’19,  as she powered her way to a second place finish. Eschewing her Intermediate girls 5km race and instead opting to run the 6km course with her teammates,   Aria MacDonald ‘21  fought a grueling race all by herself in fourth place. Pushing each other through the race were seniors   Lindsay Hogan ‘19  and   Antonia Ziegler ‘19  with both young women having their best races for different reasons.  One not wanting to pull in front of the other at the finish line, they crossed with hands clasped in unison - both in position 7.5, or so they tell me. Not so far behind were three rookies   Teresa Musi ‘20, Madison Taljaard ‘20 and  Kate Smith ‘19.   Musi  smiled each time I saw her, and had her best race of the season. Like   MacDonald,   Talijaard  raced up to the Senior division and added a full kilometer to her suffering while running each hill without stopping.   Smith had a great duel for nearly all of the race, until her racing partner cut the course by accident, or not, and ended up an intractable distance ahead.  However, displaying the best of sportsmanlike behavior, it didn’t bother our   Kate, didn’t affect the standings, and that was that - she chose to think that her competitor made an honest mistake.

Wheels and Spokes for us Folks

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Oct 30, 2018 11:15:59 AM

Recreational cycling at KES is a fun and physical Fall sport. We go on road and trail rides with enough bikes to outfit 10-12 students. Of course bike maintenance is a must each and every day. We have a bit of a hard-core attitude   (see video)  and those who are new to cycling, learn quickly to keep up in a low gear on some of the rugged trails at the Fisherman’s Road trails, for example, and they learn to pedal hard on the Falmouth Flyer route on the Back Dyke Road.
Staying straight against the white line on a municipal road on a road bike requires balance and kinetic momentum which is fundamental to good biking and physical fitness. We have a dedicated group of students who like nothing more than to get outside in the sun, wind, rain or cold and pedal around Lake Pisiquid, Fort Edward, Haliburton House or the Sangster Bridge road.
We have a great community for biking!

Braving the Chilly Atlantic!

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Oct 26, 2018 7:30:00 AM

Five courageous students braved the October chill to spend the Thanksgiving break in the chilly Atlantic! Our group ( David Ubber, Vincent Becker, Ayumu Goto, Harrison Lee, and  Pablo Bezares, along with staff members   Sven Dietrich and Morgaine Sullivan) were intimidated but undeterred by a storm surge that swelled the waves to more than double the normal size.

Proud of our Rugby Alumnae

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Oct 25, 2018 8:00:00 AM

When we welcome new student-athletes to their first-ever rugby practices in the still snowy beginning of Spring, it becomes very clear just how little they know about the game. Year in and year out, however, those same girls who had never thrown a rugby ball before coming to King’-Edgehill are running, passing, and tackling as if they had been playing for years. This year, 10 of those former student-athletes, who got their start in rugby here at King’s-Edgehill, played varsity rugby at the USport level across Canada.
