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!
This past weekend, Collingwood hosted the Grade 8 Boys' and Girls' ISA Championships. This was a true basketball extravaganza as there were two 10-team tournaments going on at the same time. There was fantastic energy in the building all weekend long. Collingwood had two girls' teams in the tournament. Both teams played well but found wins hard to come by. The Grade 8 boys fared much better as they won the bronze medal with a solid win over St. George's B. The team also defeated Stratford Hall, but fell to the eventual champions Southridge in their semi-final. Here is a report from Coach Vidic:
The Grade 8 boys had a great finish to their season with a 3rd place finish at the ISA tournament. The team came together to play some of the best basketball of the season. There was a noticeable improvement on the defensive end. Led by Presley Bosa and Subir Toor, the team took control of the paint area with some solid on-ball defense and rebounding. The speedy Nic Wrixon led the offensive charge with his dribble penetration and shooting. Cooper Armstrong also contributed some timely baskets down the stretch. Overall, a very solid team effort.
