Chateauguay Valley Regional High School (CVR) hosted its annual Sports Awards on June 7 after a two-year break. Terri Marino, the school’s athletic director, explains that having sports back at CVR “brought the school to life again. It was great to see students from all levels back at it.” Some students had never played CVR sports before because of COVID, and they were excited to participate in their first season.
The school was buzzing this year with the news that sports were back. “There was so much excitement in the fall. It was a great feeling seeing students running across the field with their cleats in their hands,” says Marino. They did have a bit of a rocky start, though, and weren’t sure about the state of the program. “We were worried about what was going to happen to the program, because a lot of the schools that we had played against historically were struggling to yield players.” However, it ended up being a hugely successful season.
CVR brought home nine league championships this year, including RSEQ (Reseau du Sport Edudiant du Quebec) Senior Boys Football, SSIAA (South Shore Interscholastic Athletic Association) Bantam Field Hockey, SSIAA Senior Field Hockey, SSIAA Junior Girls Basketball, SSIAA Senior Boys Basketball, RSEQ Senior Boys Basketball, RSEQ Senior Boys Rugby 7, GMAA Senior Boys Rugby 15s, and GMAA Senior Girls Rugby 10s.
All of that means each of these teams finished the regular season in first place. On top of this, the school brought home 12 championships from playoffs: SSIAA Bantam Field Hockey, SSIAA Senior Field Hockey, Junior Girls SSIAA Basketball, Senior Boys SSIAA Basketball, Senior Boys RSEQ Basketball, Senior Hockey, Senior Girls 3vs3 Basketball, Senior Boys 3vs3 Basketball, SSIAA Junior Boys Track and Field, RSEQ Bantam Boys Track and Field Regionals, RSEQ Junior Boys Track and Field Regionals, RSEQ Senior Boys Rugby 7s.
The success of this season keeps on coming. “We had seven kids in Rivière du Loup for track and field provincials, which hasn’t happened in years,” says Marino. It’s clear that there is an incredible group of athletes at CVR.
