This past Wednesday, the Senior Girls’ Volleyball team had their season opener at Pickering College. There was nervous energy throughout the game as the girls tried to apply what they have been practicing into a real game situation. Our talent level overcame some early season errors, as we won in pretty convincing fashion with a score of 3-1. Sydney Major and Rebecca Demeke led the team with great serving, passing, and hitting. Faith Joseph was able to scramble all game to set up our hitters with some precise sets. Great job ladies.
The Junior Girls’ Volleyball team had their first game of the season Wednesday. Our lady lions came out roaring and dominated the first match. St. Clements had to rally to deliver a competitive game, and our CPC ladies kept up the hard work showing excellent skills and sportsmanship. It was a nail biter during the fifth and final set, the tiebreaker between the two schools, being the toughest match yet. We saw amazing serves by Ella Okubasu and Ella Lee O’Rourke, and great setting by both Lexy Peerenboom and Isabelle Rigny. Not to mention some serious hustle on the court by Saleah Joseph, while Christine Kong and Sylvia Zhang got under some hard serves to dig up the ball and keep it in play. Both Ms. Letham and Ms. Belanger are super proud of our girls even though the opposing team took the final game for the win. Great start to the season ladies!
This past weekend our Prep Girls’ Basketball team traveled to Detroit Michigan where they took on the top 3 teams in the state. After 3 difficult games, the Lady Lions finished the day 3-0. Notable victory against Detroit Edison who is ranked #1 in the state of Michigan and #7 nationally. Standouts for the weekend were Latasha Lattimore, Aaliyah Edwards, Rebecca Demeke, and Shayeann Day-Wilson.
On Wednesday afternoon, the Junior Boys D1 Basketball team defeated Appleby College by a score of 83-28 to move their CISAA record to 2-0. After a slow start, the Lions got on a roll with a 27-4 2nd quarter which pushed the lead to 45-14 at the half. The boys continued their great effort through the 2nd half and finished strong. All 10 players who suited up got into the scorebook with Immanuel Oludele leading the way with 21 points. Elias Papaconstantinos scored 12 points, while Hayden John pitched in 11 points. Zack Graff had 9 points in the 1st half and added some great driving assists in the 2nd half. Great defensive presence was shown by Liam MacInnis, who brought the crowd to their feet several times with 4 big blocks. The Junior Lions will be back in action next Wednesday as they have their first CISAA road test of the season at St. Andrews College.
Wednesday night the Varsity Hockey team traveled to RSGC to take on a very quick and experienced team. Although the team had plenty of opportunities to play with a lead in the game, we always found ourselves playing from behind, until a crucial penalty was taken midway through the 3rd period and CPC was able to capitalize and finally take the lead. Great play by all with special mention going to Jayden Bennett who kept us in the game once again and to Sam Li, Christian Campanelli, and Cole Eichler who each had multipoint nights.
