The rugby squad has now been in Australia for four days and it has been quite a trip so far. The boys landed in Sydney and after a two-hour bus ride arrived on the Central Coast. After a quick lunch, the team hit the paddock for their first training session. While seeing the sun was a joyous occasion for the water-logged and snow-weary Vancouverites, the boys were not so keen about the temperature being ninety degrees.
The junior and senior rugby teams are in the last stages of preparation for their upcoming three-week tour of Australia. Since 1999, Collingwood has taken a squad 'Down Under' every second year. In those nine tour years, the team has come back and won five BC AA gold medals, one silver and two bronze. The correlation between touring and winning provincial championships is clearly very strong.
Last year, the Collingwood ski team came home with two provincial championship banners. This year they went one better and brought home all three as they won the boys', girls' and combined titles. Here is Coach Ramsden's report on this amazing feat:
Collingwood's powerhouse alpine team won two provincial banners last year. Last week at the North Shore Championships, they proved that they will once again be a contender for provincial glory as both the boys' and girls' ski teams won North Shore titles. Here is Coach Ramsden's report:
The Grade 8 girls' basketball team were in fine form this weekend as they won the ISA Championship. The Cavs used their rebounding dominance and highly effective pass-and-cut offence to take home the title. The boys' tournament was also being hosted by Collingwood. The boys avenged an opening game loss to West Point Grey with a resounding victory over them in the Consolation Final.
Three weeks ago, the Whistler Storm blew into town and sent the senior boys' basketball team into a brief downward spiral when they upset the Cavs on Collingwood's home court. This defeat was tough on both the boys and the coaching staff, but the team's strong finish to the regular season gave Coach Wong hope that the Cavs would be 'storm-busters' in the first round of the playoffs. The Cavs proved their coach right with an outstanding 75-62 victory over Whistler yesterday. Here is Coach Wong's report:
After a tough run throughout their tournament schedule and the start of regular season play, the senior boys' basketball team has finally found another gear and is starting to truly compete in games as Coach Wong always hoped they would. Their timing could not have been better as playoffs start this week. The Cavs will be fighting hard to defend their Howe Sound Championship starting on Wednesday. Here is a report from Coach Wong:
