Mastering the Monster Erg

Feb 07, '19

On Sunday the rowing team skipped brunch and headed to UVIC for the Monster Erg. With a motivated mindset, the rowers hopped onto the bus. On our way down we all got surprised by a few snow flurries, but when we arrived it was all go. As we headed into the gym, team spirit and nervousness filled the air. Wearing yellow ribbons in memory of Mr....

Cold Day, Hot Bodies

Feb 06, '19

This afternoon brought beautiful blue skies, calm water - and subzero temperatures. Although our 90 rowers were keen to launch the fleet, the coaching staff thought a varied indoor workout would improve fitness, build bonds among the four programs (girls and boys, juniors and seniors) and minimize the chances of catching a cold. Ms Ostopovich...

Practices, workouts, and bonding are all part of the preparations for the rower's favourite event of the term, the Cake Race. This year marks Brentwood’s 30th annual Cake Race.

Nov 07, '18

For most Brentwood students and faculty, that is a rhetorical question. After 10 weeks of school, of course we need a mid-term break.
