Hockey Girls Shine at RUSH Showcase

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jun 8, 2017 8:29:00 PM

This past weekend five of our female hockey players attended the RUSH Showcase in Brampton, Ontario. Kenzie Cecchetto, Amelia Humphrey, Jordyn Hickey, Ava Benedict, and Deanna Fraser flew to Ontario to show off their skill and talent in front of a big crowd of supporters. This premiere showcase is by invitation only and is attended by many Canadian and American University scouts, coaches, and managers. It is an amazing opportunity to meet, discuss, and be seen by coaches from all over, with the possibility of playing for their Universities in the future! It was a challenging, fun-filled weekend working alongside some of the best coaches in the University circuit, and making new friends. Three of our girls even made the ALL STAR team! Ava Benedict, Deanna Fraser and Jordyn Hickey suited up in the best game of the weekend and made KES proud! We want to congratulate all five girls for their hard work, and representing KES so well over the course of the showcase. The feedback we received from showcase organizers was positive and coaches were impressed with their level of play. Very proud of you all!

I had the pleasure of visiting with Ainsley Crocker (1991-96) and her daughters Ashley and Kenzie at the Gathering of the Scots Rugby Tournament in Perth Andover, New Brunswick, last weekend. Ainsley's daughter Ashley was competing in the tournament. Ainsley has great memories of winning a provincial rugby title under the guidance of rugby coaches Henri (1975-2011) and Deb (Maxwell) Medina (1977-2010).

Anson Chan was very busy over the May long weekend. While most of us were relaxing, he was off to the 

Atlantic Table Tennis Championships in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, as a member of Team Nova Scotia. He returned home in the wee hours of Sunday morning, after entering 5 different categories, including 3 singles and 2 doubles events. When all was tallied, Anson was 2nd in Under 21 Male, Champion of Under 18 Boys, Champion of Under 18 Boys Doubles, Champion of "B" single (combined gender) and his junior team also came 1st among all provinces. He was entered as an Under 16 athlete. Anson has now qualified to go to Toronto to compete in the National Championship representing Team Atlantic in July. We wish him all the best.

KES Coaches in the Community

At King’s-Edgehill school, we are fortunate to have dedicated and capable coached running our many sport teams.  Many King’s-Edgehill School coaches are receiving important recognition and opportunities for training at the highest levels, outside the realm of our athletic offerings

As mentioned in a previous article about outstanding KES coaches, we are very proud of our KES coaching team. Last year Karen Jones, a KES Senior School teacher and biathlon head coach as well as head of our equestrian programme, was awarded the NSSAF Outstanding Contribution Award for her coaching at KES. Similarly, senior school faculty member Phillip Hadley has coached the KES Track and Field Team to the Provincial Championships and was accepted into the highest level of coaching certification available worldwide.  Mr. Hadley also coaches our cross country running team in the fall.
