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.

First Run of the Season

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Sep 29, 2019 9:35:00 AM

Dodging branches, trying not to slip in mud, and always trying to do their best were among the reasons why the 115 runners that were guests of ours on September 24 th  for our annual race laced their shoes.  Before sharing a few storylines from the races, I must begin by thanking   Ms. Teresa Sanford  on behalf of the Gladys M Manning Memorial Home and Mr. Danny Dill for so kindly allowing us to use their magnificent properties. Thank you.

A Battle to the End

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Sep 26, 2019 7:00:00 AM

Having only a couple of training sessions under their belts, our boys took to the Horton High School field this week to play against a strong home team. The first 15 minutes or so saw Horton comfortably on top with a number of clear-cut chances but, with some last ditch defending and excellent goalkeeping,   Ken Lee  kept Horton out. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for the home side to open the scoring following an attack down our right side.

Full Gallop for Senior Girls Soccer

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Sep 25, 2019 3:46:05 PM

Wow…how one week can change so much! From final tryouts and then straight into a tournament at Rothesay Netherwood School with 3 games and 1 exhibition match against cross-town rivals Avon View High School, our KES Senior Girls Soccer team is off and running full gallop into their season. Last weekend’s Top of the Hill Tournament allowed our girls to bond off the field, create and develop on-field chemistry, and put into practice many of the key points they worked on in early training sessions. Three tough opponents demanded our full attention and best effort, pushing us to be at our best.   Coaches Dufour and Chandler  are very pleased with how far the girls have developed and are proud of their attitudes and effort!

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.
