Cavs Return From Australia Today

The senior rugby squad has just returned from Australia this morning. The three-week tour was a big success as all 32 boys played some terrific rugby throughout the five games.

The 1st XV was definitely hoping to come home with a winning record, but a 17-12 loss to Somerset in the last game thwarted those hopes. However, the team played a very good game in adverse conditions so the coaches were not too worried about the result. It's games like this that will pay dividends later in the season when the Cavs are playing their local rivals.

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.
