Battle of the Blades

Dec 09, '19

Saturday night was the annual Snowball gala featuring a spectacularly decorated Crooks Hall, a sumptuous dinner, a photo booth, and, to the embarrassment of some, a very successful hypnotist. It was an evening that featured high heels, dapper suits, corsages, boutonnieres, and well-groomed hair. Post-hypnosis, the student body went to bed with...

Cake Race 2019

Dec 05, '19

As Mrs Biesenthal excitedly stated in a recent post, Cake Race 2019 is now in the books for our Brentwood Rowers! A few days ago, crews of eight people each competed against each other in an excruciating erg battle. Usually, Cake Race is done on the water in eights, but due to high winds from the north of 70-90km, our rowers worked the machines,...

VUI Gold

Dec 03, '19

This past weekend, half of the Junior Girls Basketball squad (we have 22 players) travelled to Nanaimo to play in the Future Mariners Tournament at VIU. There were two pools in this tournament. We played very well on Friday night and came out with a big win over Ballenas. On Saturday, because of other commitments, we only had a team of seven...

Order On The Court

Dec 02, '19

While half the Junior Girls Basketball squad ventured up to Nanaimo this past weekend to play in a tournament at VIU (which they won, more on that in another article) the other half made their way down to Spectrum and Claremont high schools to take part in the Victoria Tip-off Tournament. This was a big deal for the girls, given it was the...

Silver Senior A Girls Volleyball Island Championships

Nov 23, '19

Last weekend, Volleyball AA Islands were held at Brentwood. After a hard five-set battle against Barsby at North Islands the weekend before, the Senior A Volleyball team had not only qualified for Islands but won North Islands! The first day was a round-robin and the team knew they had to perform really well in order to get first in their pool...

That’s A Wrap!

Nov 23, '19

With Term 2 sports commencing this week, the girl’s competitive volleyball season comes to an end. Well, almost. The Junior A Girls competed in the Island Championship last weekend, where they faced some serious competition. The troops started the tournament playing against the host team, Dover Bay. They then went on to play second-place winner...

Seas the Day!

Nov 21, '19

At Brentwood, Saturdays are usually spent in academic classes, followed by an hour or two of athletic activity, and then free time. Not so, however, for students in Outdoor Pursuits this past weekend! On Friday, as the rest of the school was busily engaged in its arts, the students in ODP loaded our camping and kayaking gear into a truck, and...

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...

Athletic Therapy

Nov 13, '19

One of the many things I have learned at Brentwood College School: don’t jump on uneven ground or you may end up with a lower body injury. If this happens to you and you end up with a broken ankle as I did, you will probably get placed in the sports rehab program. That’s what happened to me after working out in the gymnasium. On my way back to...

The girls started out their Tuesday with an exciting game against each other! “A” team took home the first set, however, the “B” team did not give up and battled right until the end taking the second set. The game went...
