Coach Wong is one of the most upbeat, positive coaches that anyone will come across in the BC Basketball scene. So when he is clearly frustrated by his team's performance, then you know that his squad has not come to play. Sadly, this was the case yesterday in the first round of the No Regrets Tournament as Collingwood fell 69-39 to Charles Hayes from Prince Rupert.
A Collingwood education is designed to stretch our students in all aspects of their lives. Our students are prepared for the challenges ahead as they expand their horizons across the globe in pursuit of promising and meaningful futures.
Maegan Beres has already had an unbelievably exciting year. She was an assistant captain of BC's U-18 team that won a bronze at the national championships. She also signed her National Letter of Intent to attend Boston College next year. However, this latest piece of news is undoubtedly the best. Maegan is off to the World Championships in the Czech Republic with Canada's U-18 Women's Team. Here is the press release from Hockey Canada:
The North Shore Invitational Basketball Tournament was rebranded as the No Regrets Tournament last year through the Quinn Keast Foundation. The tournament consists of 24 teams (16 boy's and 8 girl's) with representation from all parts of British Columbia, Alberta, and the North West Territories.
The senior boys' basketball team travelled to Brentwood College on the weekend for the ISA Championships. Due to a number of factors the tournament ended up being a four-team affair that included:
Collingwood - 2016 BC AA Champions
SMUS - 2016 BC AA Finalists
Southridge - 2016 BC AAA Champions
Brentwood - 2016 BC Junior Champions
Thus, it was an incredibly tough tournament for the Cavs, especially as they have no returning starters from last year's powerhouse squad. Despite three straight losses, Coach Wong came away with a very optimistic view of the weekend as his team gained a great deal of valuable experience playing some of the best teams in the province. Here is his report:
The Grade 10 boys defeated New West in the final of the Cav Classic on Saturday afternoon. This was a tremendous victory for the team. Coach Ditson was justifiably elated after the game. His young team has suffered through some early season injury troubles, but instead of feeling sorry for themselves, they have battled on and seen multiple players step up to help secure wins. Here is Coach Yoon's game report:
The Grade 10 girls' basketball team battled hard but fell to the Robert Bateman Timberwolves in the Grade 10 Girls Cav Classic Final on Saturday. Collingwood faced a formidable opponent in Bateman as the Timberwolves won the Grade 9 BC Championship last year. In the same event, the Cavs finished 10th. Thus, it seemed like Collingwood was in for a very tough afternoon, especially since star forward Kayleigh Garland was away on senior team duty.
Both the Grade 10 Boys and Girls' teams have fought their way into the Championship Game in the Cav Classic. This is the first time that Collingwood has hosted a co-ed tournament at the Grade 10 level. So far the tournament has been a huge success and has attracted quality teams from the North Shore, Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley and the Okanagan.
The senior girls' basketball team has stormed to a 2-0 record this season. On Wednesday night, the Cavs defeated the Mission Roadrunners. Here is Coach McLaughlin's report:
The cast and crew of Collingwood School Theatre's production of "Amadeus" did a fantastic job.
