Cross Country Recap

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Oct 17, 2019 11:30:00 AM

Much like the 4 km course that our harriers raced around on October 8 th, this recap will be shorter than the usual standard. However, be sure to   click on this link  to see a great video put together by   Amelia MacDonald ‘21  of our trip to Maine. For most of the team, this was our third race in 7 days. That’s tough as it is, but, there was also the 1600 km worth of driving in just 60 hours. Needless to say, legs were tired. Indeed, to be fair, I think that most of the team ran this course as opposed to raced it. That said,   François Richard ‘21  and   Aria MacDonald ‘21  both got the job done as they placed first and second, respectively. Also finishing in the top 10 were   Aitana Cisneros ‘23  in 4 th  place,   Maddy Taljaard ‘20  in 9 th  and   Ela Perez ‘21  grabbed the 10 th  spot in her race. Honourable mention goes to our second boy across the line in 11 th,   Callum Lovelace ‘21.

KES Senior Girls Soccer - We Win or We Learn!

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Oct 8, 2019 3:26:00 PM

Our KES Senior Girls’ Soccer team experienced a tournament victory as well as a great learning opportunity this past week, as our team won the South Colchester Academy Senior Girls Soccer Tournament in Brookfield and were soundly outplayed 5-0 in Canning against NKEC on Monday afternoon.

On Friday afternoon in Brookfield, KES outlasted SCA 5-4 in a high-scoring game in which KES seemed to be in complete control of the play. However, inconsistent mental lapses gifted SCA’s willing forwards clear-cut chances to pounce and capitalize on our mistakes. They made no mistake in making this result far closer than what it should have been. Full credit to SCA.
Allie Martin continued her offensive production as she fired home 3 excellent goals to lead KES. Jill Griffith, dominant all game in midfield and then at central defence, demonstrated her offensive prowess by scoring twice.

On Saturday morning, KES claimed the 2019 South Colchester Academy Tournament banner by defeating Hants North High School 4-0. In playing their most dominant game of the season to date, KES strengthened all parts of their game play: maintaining better team organization in attack and on defence, completing more passes, and more consecutive passes, and producing more shots on goal. Protecting goalkeeper Maya Faucher and not conceding a goal was a solid team effort, too.

Jill Griffith opened the scoring and led the KES attack with 2 goals and a huge number of completed passes to open teammates. Hannah Bryant, out since the RNS Tournament, played the forward position and scored a breakaway on her return to action, as did Tyra Alleyne, injured since the beginning of the year and in her first game of the season. Goalkeeper Maya Faucher was not as busy as she was on Friday, but she was excellent in receiving back passes and re-starting the attack. Well done, team!

On Monday afternoon in Canning, the girls learned a number of valuable lessons as they were over-powered by a dominant NKEC Titans squad. A slow start accompanied by nervous and tentative play were all NKEC needed as they applied pressure early and often, scoring 4 first-half goals in the process. KES regrouped at halftime, made a few tactical changes, and were a much tougher and competitive squad in the 2nd frame, allowing a single goal. Maya Faucher was awesome in goal for KES! Fearing and being intimidated by an opponent is much different than respecting and digging in against one. With both of these mindsets clearly on display in this game, a valuable lesson was learned, bluntly, and stowed away for future reference, on a beautiful Annapolis Valley afternoon.

Weight Room Supervisors

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Oct 5, 2019 5:14:00 PM

Weight room supervisors are senior students (Grades 11 & 12) who ensure that student-athletes use the weight room safely. These student-leaders are trained in Emergency First Aid and also take part in the Weight Room Supervisor Workshop. They volunteer their time to make the free-weight rooms available to their fellow students. Other students are not able to access the free-weight areas without a staff/faculty member or a Weight Room Supervisor present. I would like to thank these students in advance for their selfless leadership and contribution to our School community.

Our Summer Rugby Players

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Oct 2, 2019 9:35:32 AM

The mud on their boots probably wasn’t even dried up from their last games of the high school season before seven of our students were lacing them up again to represent Nova Scotia as members of the provincial ‘Keltics’ rugby programme. On the boys’ side, brothers   Evan (U-18) and Jem Logan (U-16)  were joined by   Greg Otto (U16)  in suiting up for their respective age-grade teams. Not to be outdone, four of our female students traded in their red KES uniforms for blue Keltics uniforms as they represented Nova Scotia.   Megan Mattie  and   Maya Faucher  both were members of the Under-16 team while   Courtney Ells  and   Camryn Kleynhans  led the charge for the Under-18 team. These seven student-athletes first competed in the Atlantic Canadian Championships in PEI before heading to Kingston, Ontario to compete at the Eastern Canadian Championships.
 
In addition to being selected for the Keltics,   Camryn and Courtney  were both identified as top players in their age group and were invited to attend the U-18 Canada East training camp which took place at Brock University in Ontario. While   Courtney  was unable to attend,   Camryn  had the opportunity to compete against the USA East U-18 team which is an accomplishment for which she deserves much credit.
