Spartan Talk June 26, 2024

Leadership organized CVR’s last dance of the year, the “Spring Fling” on May 24 for the seniors (Grades 9, 10 and 11). They also hosted all the Grade 6 students from CVR’s feeder elementary schools for orientation on May 10. 160 young students came and were welcomed by Leadership who were wearing “Be Yourself” shirts which was the theme of the orientation day. On May 30 and 31, Leadership also organized an ice cream fundraiser for La Bouffe Additionelle.

On May 15 and 16, CVR participated in the yearly South Shore Interscholastic Athletics Association (SSIAA) track and field meet at Heritage Regional High School. With 75 athletes, it was the largest team CVR has brought to the SSIAA meet in a long time. The senior boys brought home an SSIAA banner which was the first one that CVR has won for track and field in years. Ashton Bryson performed very well at the meet, getting gold in 1200m, 2000m, triple jump, and javelin. Vincent Roberts won silver in 100m, 200m and 400m.

A total of 25 athletes moved on to regionals and four students are moving on to provincials. The athletes going to provincials performed very well at regionals. Adrianna McKell won silver in 100m hurdles, Cameron Woods won gold in high jump, Addison Wallace won silver in 200m, and Ashton Bryson won gold in javelin, silver in shotput, and bronze in high jump. The coaches were very impressed by the team and all the volunteers who came to help the athletes improve and to inspire them to push themselves and beat their personal bests.

During the last few weeks of school, CVR’s rugby teams had some truly outstanding performances. The senior girls did exceptionally well, having one of the most successful seasons to date. The girls were undefeated in the fall RSEQ 7s season, the Concordia 7s tournament, and the GMAA 10s season. Their regular season ended with four wins and zero losses and 322 points “for.” Only 22 points were scored against the Spartans.

On May 29, CVR hosted the finals against Monseigneur-Richard and the team won gold after their 80-0 win. It was emotional for the players as well as the coaches, since ten players are graduating this year, and this was their last season with CVR. Sisters Salome and Naomi Lapp were the lead scorers of the season, both with 109 points scored.
