In what can be best described as miserable conditions, your Senior Girl’s Rugby team began play in the rain in Kingston on Tuesday. The day saw the team with an even 2 and 2 record. Four players made their debut in stripes and represented the school well. The team only allowed two tries on the day and should prove to be a dynamic force this season.

The Junior girl’s rugby team travelled to a dome in Oakville on Friday to kick off their season. The team finished the day with a 2-1-1 record. Their wins came over rival GL Roberts and Ursaline. 23 players suited up for the Cougars with 12 making their first appearance in a game of rugby 15′s. The team was lucky enough to have a scrum instruction session with Luke Gross a former US national team member and current forwards coach of the US women’s team. The girls all played hard and represented Courtice Secondary well. Back to the confines of the gym on Monday morning, spring can’t come soon enough.

After a nearly decade long break your Courtice Secondary curlers returned to the ice this season. C.S.S. fielded 3 teams (2 girls and 1 boys). The return was triumphant. The teams all finished in the top 3 of their divisions for the regular season and got off to winning starts in the playoffs. In the LOSSA finals yesterday all three teams were playing for medals.
The boys team of M. Smith, S. Segriff, T. Sweeting, M. Holdbrook and A. Rickman came up short in their medal game losing to Wilson. A silver medal in their first season is a great result.
The two girl’s teams faced each other in the LOSSA semi-finals. The team of M. Snowden, K. Meredith, C. Hyland, A. Brown and N. Burry were a rock short in the bronze medal game. The other team won their gold medal final over Uxbridge and will represent LOSSA at OFSAA.
Congratulations to A. Edgar, M. Perrault, C. Hoefs and M. Nakamura on their gold medal victory.
Good luck at OFSAA ladies.
