Congratulations to all of our seniors who attended the graduation ceremonies this past weekend. You all looked fantastic.
Last week the boys finished their season with a 27-10 loss to Strathnmore. Scoring tries were Wade Zimmerman and Devon Westby. Chestermere boys’ rugby had a strong building year with more than half the team rookies to the sport. The athletes confronted the challenges before them, and worked hard to acquire the skills and strength required for success in upcoming years, and throughout their high school careers. The boys put forth huge efforts in all their regular season games, and showed true grit, determination and have a strong base on which to build the program over the coming years. Despite a losing season, the boys scored in every single game, and show great promise for the future of rugby at CHS.. We look forward to a winning season next year. Thank you to all the fans, faculty and community assistance received over the season; we could not have done it without the support of our community. Thanks to Coach Autet and the assistant coaches for all of your efforts in building rugby at the school.
The girls lost their playoff game last week as they took on Strathmore at the Calgary Rugby Union finale. The girls had a good game and enjoyed the finale. Kyla Cochlan scored one try for the Lakers. This ended the season for the girls. Thanks to the coaches for all your time, expertise and effort. Congratulations to the girls on your season.
The Cowboys will finish their spring camp this week. The main camp will begin in August, prior to the start of school. For information please e-mail me for a package or check the web-site at the end of June.
