Nova Scotia Wrestlers of the Year

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jun 28, 2019 9:51:33 AM

King’s-Edgehill School was well represented at the recent Wrestling Nova Scotia (WNS) Annual Awards banquet, hosted June 9 th  at Hatfield Farms. As her coaches,   Jason Verryn-Stuart  and I were very pleased to chaperone graduating student and captain,   Téa Racozzi, and Grade 9 student,   Bella Turner-Galaise, to receive their WNS High School Wrestlers of the Year awards. Both were Provincial high school champions in their respective weight classes and age divisions.   Téa  was undefeated in high school wrestling this year and won each tournament she entered. She also had amazing results in her club competitions.   Téa  lost only one match and that was against the National Champion at the National Under 19 Championship final match in April. She took home the SILVER medal at her first National Championship, the best result from the Nova Scotia contingent, in both gender and age categories. This performance came on the heels of an Eastern Canadian Championship, where   Téa  defeated last year’s National Freestyle silver medalist and Greco Roman Champion from New Brunswick.

Téa Racozzi - Taking Rugby to the Next Level

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jun 27, 2019 8:08:11 AM

Téa Racozzi leaves KES as one of the most decorated female athletes in the last few years. While she overcame challenges that came her way during her time at KES, she is now ready to take on new experiences at Concordia University. This five-sport (soccer, cross-country, wrestling, snowboarding, and rugby) varsity athlete and our Senior Female Athlete of the Year and Senior Female Student Athlete of the Year will be joining the Concordia Stinger’s Rugby program next fall! In joining the Stingers, Téa will be yet another one of our female rugby players who has earned the opportunity to play at the USport level.

Concordia’s coaching staff identified Téa in her Grade 11 season due to her skill, athleticism, and work ethic. “We are very excited to have such an amazing athlete joining our rugby program here at Concordia”, commented Head Coach Jocelyn Barrieau. “Téa’s dedication on and off the field is already visible at such a young age. Her pride in academics is also an important part of what she brings, and we are very happy to have a person like her joining the Stingers family”

Our former Junior Female Athlete of the Year was also a Provincial champion wrestler who had a fine showing at the wrestling Nationals held this year in Fredericton. Due to her prowess on the wrestling mats as well, Téa will have the opportunity to be a dual varsity sport athlete at Concordia if she so chooses. 

Despite being a three-sport Captain, she not only provided leadership in athletics, but was also an engaged Steward and Prefect throughout her time at KES providing excellent mentorship in the classroom and dorms as well. While we will miss Téa next year, our School is a better place thanks to her contributions to it, and we know she will continue to achieve success wherever she goes.

The Bluenose Marathon

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jun 20, 2019 9:23:00 AM

Traditionally, the Bluenose Marathon (Nova Scotia’s race weekend) is held over the long weekend in May, but this year it was held over the June 8th-9th weekend. Rumour has it that it was the nicest weather for the races in many years, and it was well represented by our King’s-Edgehill community.  

The Lifemark 5km race kicked off the weekend, and it was a fast course around the Halifax downtown core. Impressive results were achieved by   Mr. Brodi Robinson  (18:35) and   David McCurdy ’19  (21:12) who finished 12th and 53rd out of a large field of over 2000 runners.

Provincial Track and Field: GOLD, GOLD, GOLD, SILVER

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jun 19, 2019 5:03:35 PM

With more than 4500 student-athletes participating in the 10 District Championships, track and field is by far the biggest sport in the NSSAF. That number is greatly reduced at the Regional Championships, and then reduced further at the Provincial Championships. It is a long road to the top of the podium, but the KES jersey was seen many times over the past two days of competition.

Carter Short Receives Red Cross Rescuer Award

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jun 18, 2019 5:10:00 PM

A life-threatening emergency can happen at a moment’s notice and, though we don’t want to dwell on this reality, it is reassuring to know that there are those with the training and the initiative who can save the day. Such was the case for Carter Short, one of our Grade 9 students from Newfoundland and Labrador. A capable student and a responsible young man, Carter was honoured with the Red Cross Rescuer Award at our last full School assembly. His quick thinking and responsible actions saved a choking victim earlier in the school year.
