Snowboarding Fun!

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Mar 25, 2021 1:56:00 PM

Our snowboard team had an incredible and exhausting day at the hill. Our riders had to adapt to all weather conditions. We arrived to spring conditions, and no cloud in sight. Slowly but steadily, the clouds came in and we got some fresh snow on our icy giant slalom course.

Buzzer Beater!!

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Mar 3, 2021 7:03:00 AM

Our Junior Boys’ Basketball team had a very unique experience this week. Everything came together as we were able to play a local team now that restrictions have eased. A referee was hired quickly, and the gym time was available.
Then the really unexpected happened:  
 
The Hantsport Shamrock were ahead by 38-26 as the final quarter began. Our boys picked away at the lead with key baskets from   Finn Bryant, Tony Ojinere, Parker Simpkin and  Colin Stephens.  With 16 seconds to play, the score was tied so   Finn Bryant  launched a three-pointer. It looked good…..BUT ……. it “rimmed out.” Then   Colin Stephens  crashed the boards and put in the rebound for a 42-40 victory with a fraction of a second left!!

Equestrians Hit the Airwaves

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jan 18, 2021 8:49:00 PM

The Equestrian programme at King’s-Edgehill School is enjoying the winter hiatus as the students move to winter-based sporting activities.  The programme was in full swing in the fall and will ramp up again in the spring.  In 2020, our programme caught the attention of a radio personality with Zoomer Radio.  Susan Jamieson hosts By the Love of Horses.  In November, Susan conducted a telephone interview with one of our current riders, Elena Julien (Grade 10) and alumna, Sabrina Corradini (Class of 2017).  Elena is a seasoned rider in our Equestrian programme and Sabrina is an Assistant Trainer at Fox Hollow Stables.  Both Elena and Sabrina recounted favourite horse stories and the elements that brought them both to King’s-Edgehill School and the Equestrian programme.

Look for more updates on our Equestrian programme when the spring programme starts.

We Celebrate Coach Phillip Hadley

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jan 18, 2021 8:49:12 AM

Phillip Hadley  has been Head Coach of our track and field and cross-country running programmes since he came to our School 6 years ago.  His student–athletes and teams have won numerous regional and provincial championships, as individuals and teams. His greatest success is the consistent improvement and personal bests that his athletes have achieved under his guidance. He has also provided mentorship to his many capable Assistant Coaches. He was nominated last spring for the   Celebration of School Sport Award  for King’s-Edgehill School. The award recognizes those, “who exemplify the qualities the NSSAF strives to develop through participation in school sport. They are true examples of good sportsmanship; they demonstrate respect for others, and they are our 'best' teacher-coaches.”
