Cavs Defeat Brentwood In Stadium Series

The senior rugby team defeated Brentwood College 34-5 yesterday in an all-important Stadium Series game. The two teams came into the game knowing that the winner of this match can count on being ranked higher at the BC Championships so a lot was on line.

The game started poorly for Collingwood as they mishandled the opening kick-off and found themselves under all sorts of pressure from the tough BCS forwards and their slick backs. However, fortune smiled on the Cavs when Duncan Bustos put in a terrific clearing kick from deep in the Collingwood zone. Good kick-chase defence rattled the BCS back-three and a wayward pass was gobbled up by Ethan Lucke and he streaked 50 metres with the intercept. Duncan Bustos convert made it 7-0.

Mere minutes later, Collingwood followed this up with a sublime piece of back brilliance as they spun the ball wide and Ethan once again galloped down the field for a long-distance try. The Cavs were now up 12-0.

The Cavs followed this up with another terrific try as Cole Young found himself in open field and he put the pedal down and left BCS defenders in his dust. With Collingwood up 17-0, BCS was definitely in shock.

The Cavs added a Duncan Bustos penalty and looked to be going into halftime with a healthy 20-0 lead. However, another excellent kick by Duncan and more good kick-chase defence led to another gift try as a BCS winger dropped the ball and then failed to react to his mistake. Nate Holm swooped in and picked up the ball and scored the simplest of tries under the posts.

The only shadow on this amazing first-half performance was the fact that Tyler Preston left the field with a very serious shoulder injury. This is a huge blow to the team.

BCS found their composure in the second half and it was a tough battle. Collingwood dominated for long stretches but only scored one try. Ethan recorded his hat-trick after Nate put him away for a scamper into the corner of the end-zone.

BCS scored on the last play of the game to make it 34-5.

Graeme Neil-Klein, Cole Young and Cam Bruk celebrate Ethan Lucke's second try of the game.

Cole Soprovich looks to move the ball as most of Collingwood's forwards look on.

Duncan Bustos fakes to Graeme Neill-Klein. Duncan had a terrific game as he masterfully mixed up the offence with crashes, wide movements and tactical kicks.

Nate Holm had a fantastic game as he was sharp offensively and a beast on defence.

Tyler Preston's injury is a huge blow to the team. He was the Cavs #1 jumper and ball-stealer. The rest of the forwards are going to have to step-up since he is out for the season.

India Service Trip

"If you've come here to help me, you're wasting your time. But if you've come here because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together".

~ Lilla Watson

One of the most powerful experiences we have in becoming global citizens is to visit a developing country. An immersion into culture and tradition alongside exploring the issues and causes that surround poverty, hopefully planting seeds for a movement to create change.

Over Spring Break, 16 students travelled to India to volunteer with WE Villages. Collingwood's relationship with WE and their Education Pillar in the village of Barind is now into its 8th year. Over the years, our students have engaged in various projects to enhance the school facilities for approximately 50 students who share one class room. This year, our task was to start the build for a kitchen facility on the school grounds. Our 16 students along with teacher chaperones and in-country foremen were a strong building army and tangible progress was made.

While the primary focus of this trip is service, the experience offered so much more. Our students were able to engage with the children and local villagers to get a glimpse into a day in their lives. The WE program also educates our students on the issues surrounding poverty and how sustainable change can be made. Most importantly, our students were made to reflect on how they can step forward as leaders and carry this experience forward.

Our next WE Villages trip will be advertised and accepting applications in mid-May.

Please don't hesitate to reach out to Shannon Bosa if you'd like to know more.

Congratulations Addie Tiller on your Bronze medal and way to go team!

Way to Go Robocavs!

Over the weekend of February 17 & 18, our Robocavs participated in a Provincial Qualifier competition hosted at Enver Creek Secondary. Our junior team had a fantastic run, making it to the semi-finals and finishing 3rd. Our intermediate team had an amazing showing scoring 186 points in the skills competition. This won them the Skills award with 3rd ranking in Canada and 13th in the world for skills. The intermediate team then went undefeated and finished first in the qualifying rounds! They followed this by choosing a solid alliance partner and winning the championship. Their skills, their play, and their robot so impressed the judges that they won the Excellence award. These all qualified them for provincials, and if they maintain a world ranking in skills above 35th they qualify for worlds. Keep up the good work Robocavs!
