The Irish Rugby Adventure Continues

Sunday March 8 A bit of a sleep-in with breakfast at 9am, then onto the bus at 10. We toured Phoenix Park, the largest inner-city park in Europe, at over 1700 acres. It encloses the home of Irish Prime Minister Michael D. Higgins and the US Ambassador. From there, we stopped at Na Fianna (“na feeney”) one of the largest Gaelic Athletic...

Rugby in Ireland

Mar 10, '20

Friday March 6 We arrived! Flight from London to Dublin was smooth, the boys were tired but excited about being on tour. Some of the boys helped an older gentleman with his bags and his wife said, “typical Canadians, always helping out”. Upon arriving in Dublin, we were met by our tour guide John A. MacDonald and driver Greg, then drove by coach...

Junior Colts Rugby

Jan 10, '20

The Brentwood Grade 8 & 9 rugby team had one of its most successful seasons to date. We had heaps of players, all full of talent and courage, and we improved substantially in a short while. Most notably, we recorded some excellent results against top teams. The team was led superbly by Will C, who showed the determination he had honed as a...

Second Term Sports

Nov 20, '19

As winter creeps up on Brentwood students with report cards and the end of our first term, there are many changes going on. As the good weather comes to an end, so too do first term sports. This means an end to practices three times a week with your teammates and friends who you’ve bonded with over the past three months. But with this end comes a...

Marius Felix Retires: When Comes Such Another?

Aug 02, '19

My first memory of Mr Felix was meeting him during Orientation of my first year. My father had just left, and in a sudden flash, I realized I was alone in the middle of nowhere. But standing tall as ever by the Ross Building was Mr Felix, a lighthouse drawing in students who felt lost. Recognizing him from the stories my father, an Old...

Near Miracle at Mulgrave

Four games, fifty-six minutes and one trophy all on the line. The morning started early with a five-thirty alarm to prepare the team for a long and tough day of fighting for the Mulgrave Rugby Sevens Trophy.

The Sun Was Shining

May 04, '19

On Tuesday the Junior Boys Rugby team delivered their best performance of the season, defeating powerhouse St George’s 28-27 in a thriller on Gillespie Field. It started ignobly, with Saints scoring a try five minutes in, after plunging across our gain line routinely and batting away our attempts to stop them. Luckily the ball was grounded at the...

A Journey, To Alberni

Apr 23, '19

Last Tuesday, the majority of the Junior Boys Rugby team hunkered down on the bus for a two and a half hour trek up and over Vancouver Island to face some northern competition in Port Alberni. To the relief of the boys (some of whom missed a science test - sorry Mrs. Olszewski) the team met at Crooks Hall at noon to eat their early lunch, and pack...

Jack NG’s Big Day of Sport

Apr 16, '19

Jack NG woke at six on Saturday morning, a big day before him. It was dark, wet, and early, and he tucked two cereal bars into his backpack and headed out the door with his dad, Jim, off to Maple Bay for their annual regatta. After carefully bolting into place the cold aluminum riggers, he and his three crewmates launched the boat and headed to...
