Cavs Open Rugby Season With 88-21 Win

The BC AA defending champions opened Lower Mainland league play against Bryne Creek, which was playing in its first ever league game. While Collingwood was not looking to crush a brand new program, the lack of any game time before the Cavs' upcoming Australian tour was a major issue that forced the coaches to field their strongest team for at least the first 12 minutes of the game. At this point, the substitutions started and by halftime the full bench had been rotated in. This means that everyone going to Australia has at least a little contact under their belt before facing some tough opposition 'Down Under'.

Cavs Celebrate Seniors' Night With Win Over West Van

The senior girls' basketball team celebrated senior's night with a 45-31 win over West Van last night. Coach McLaughlin has always made sure that her graduating players are feted in an amazing fashion as the each Grade 12 player presented her parents with flowers before the game and then was given a photo in the post-game celebration. However, the best part of the evening is always the touching tributes that the Grade 11 players give to their departing teammates. These speeches were particularly well done yesterday as the younger players talked about their love and admiration for the grads and all the fun they had together this year.

Cavs Beat Elphinstone To Win The Classic

The senior boys' basketball team defeated Elphinstone for the second time in less than a week to capture the Cav Classic yesterday evening. It was a great team win as the Cavs used their lethal three-point shooting to great effect as usual, but were also able to score inside the paint as well. This was too much for an Elphistone team that was missing their top player in the final. Tariq Alibhai and Imraan Karmali were named tournament All-Stars, while Lochlan Collins took home the MVP award.
