Colts Rugby

Aug 06, '18

Twenty two young men comprised the 2018 Brentwood Colts Rugby Team. They came in all shapes and sizes, and from all over. Some had storied reputations, others not so much. For our new players, we offered by way of initiation a sort of shock therapy: we would play a game on our second day. The game was chaotic and our boys were gun shy, though we...

On a wonderful day in June, the Grade 8 Students had the opportunity to go kayaking in and around Mill Bay. We took kayaks, paddles and spray decks.

For some, it was the easiest thing in the world, and for others, it was...

Missing the Cut

Jul 25, '18

At the start of my Grade 10 year, I was told that I would no longer be rowing in the Junior category. Because of my birthdate, I would be rowing for Mr Carr and the Senior Boys. As scary as the new information was, I was eager to be taught by such a legendary coach. I immediately became the “younger brother” of the team. Fetching oars, grabbing...

With the continuous cascading rain pounding on the uncut grass in early-March, what is meant to be Spring didn’t seem to have been upon us, but that did not delay the start of golf season. With a couple of new and some familiar faces on the coaching staff, the golf team was eager to start swinging away on the links. This year’s Brentwood Golf...

Brentwood 1st XV Falls Just Short of Provincial Glory

Jul 07, '18

This season has been an outstanding one for the Brentwood 1st XV; the team has improved greatly since first term, and in third term, has garnered convincing victories over St. Michaels, Rockridge, and Mark Isfeld. More so, the coaches have been further impressed by the team’s dedication to purposefully prepare, taking practices and pregame warmups...
