There will be tryouts for the Gr. 6/7 CAIS Boys Basketball team during the week of Oct. 30 - Nov. 3. If your son wishes to try out for this team, please click on both the grade team and CAIS tryouts. A meeting for students interested will be held prior the first tryout. It is important to note:
For the 2017-18 School year, the athletics program at Wentworth will be adopting a new philosophy towards the CAIS basketball selection process. The CAIS teams will be seen as an extension for both sports from the grade teams.
Players will participate with their grade teams in the local ISEA leagues. This means that all grade 6s will play basketball on the grade 6 team in ISEA league play and the same will apply to the grade 7s. The CAIS basketball team will play in local tournaments such as the Cav Classic and Dragon classic along with the CAIS National tournament from Jan. 31 to Feb 3rd.
Practice times are subject to change due to gym availability. The complete schedule will be posted on the Wentworth Athletics Website at http://www.collingwood.org/athletics/wentworth (please check weekly) during mid October.

After a rainy Wednesday morning, the dark skies moved on allowing for a ideal conditions at Mulgrave school to host our Collingwood Cavs Gr. 6/7 A Soccer team. The midfield led by Riley K. and Katie L. looked to dictate play from the onset by moving the ball wide opening up holes in the Mulgrave backline. The strategy paid off with an early goal by Katie L. to give Collingwood a 1-0 lead. Mulgrave quickly put the pressure on from the ensuing restart by kicking the ball deep into the Collingwood half. Unfortunately an errant clearing attempt allowed Mulgrave's centre back a nice run up to boot the ball from 30 metres out and the perfect strike tied the game, 1-1.
Collingwood quickly recovered from the restart by sticking the ball controlling strategy and stretching the defense wide. This led to numerous corner kick attempts and shots on goal that would be blocked or saved. Eventually a poor clearing attempt by the Mulgrave keeper allowed Skyler E. to clean up and take a shot at the keeper which bounced off the keeper then a defender into the net. Collingwood regained the lead and never looked back.
The second half saw Collingwood control the majority of the play and possession in Mulgrave's half. Coach Pinguelo switched Katie L. to the right side allowing her and Riley K. to move the ball at will up the field while utilizing the speed and tenacity of Tori P. P. The give and go game proved to be successful on the day as the Collingwood girls were constantly making the Mulgrave backline turn around and chase balls down. Riley K. finally scored after having many opportunities from out front followed by Katie L. second of the game to end the scoring. The final whistle blew and Collingwood came away with a 4-1 Victory to get their first win of the season.
The backline of Evelyn M., Rachel M. and Rachel R. and Georgia H. did well on the day making life easy for their goal keeper Darcy F. who wished it was sunny out to work on her tan as she had plenty of R&R back their. I am sure she could have completed her homework for Ms. Pezim while playing keeper at the same time
The girls have a tough task next week as the head on the road to White Rock on Tuesday to take on Southridge School.
Great win and GO CAVS GO!
This week, many of the Wentworth teams had their final ISEA playdays around the city. The playdays are a great opportunity to wrap up the season for the grade 5s and 6s as they don't compete for a league championships. It is a celebration of the season and a chance to reconnect with players from other teams and to just have a fun day of sport.
On Wednesday, the grade 6 boys made their way to the Richmond Oval. They ended up being shorthanded due to quite a few illnesses but with 11 boys, they split into 2 squads and competed all day. Overall, they improved their skills under the leadership of Mr. Style and Mr. Sullivan. The boys are getting hooked on basketball and the team aspects of the game. We look forward to seeing them compete in grade 7.
On Thursday, The grade 5 girls were at Mulgrave where they won 7 out of 8 games. Great job girls and huge kudos to Ms. Nielsen and Ms. Bombini on a job well done coaching this group of girls. We can't wait to see what they have in store next year!
Also yesterday, The grade 6 girls were at the Richmond Oval for the day. They fought hard all season, never giving up and improved their skills and knowledge of the game. There is plenty of potential and athleticism and we cant wait to see them take the reigns next year in grade 7 when they compete in league play.
The grade 7B boys defeated Meadowridghe 36-28. They were down 10 points after the 1st quarter but with the likes of Tanner J. and sharp shooter Issac P., they boys fought back and took control of the game by half time. This was an awesome victory and will definitely give them some momentum going into their ISEA championships on Monday.
Lastly, the grade 5 boys were at Southridge School competing in their ISEA playday. The squad was split into 3 teams led by Coaches Cavalluzzo, Sung-Cole, and guest coach Allen. The day started off well with 2 out of 3 teams easily defeating St. George's and one team narrowly losing. All three teams displayed excellent skill and a solid grasp of the game. Both Mr. Cav and Ms. Sung-Cole did an outstanding job teaching the boys all season long on the basics but also about commitment, sportsmanship, and most importantly character. The season isn't over though as they gr. 5s will take on Vancouver College on Feb. 21st in an exhibition game at Wentworth in the Katz-Tefler Gym.
Thank you everyone for you continued support throughout the season, especially the parents and teachers.
