The senior girls' basketball team played some terrific basketball this weekend at the West Point Grey tournament. The team's 2nd place finish was a great result and will help them tremendously as they start their North Shore playoffs on Monday night at Seycove. Here is Coach McLaughlin's tournament report:
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.
