GDHS girls curl to gold, join mixed rink in qualifying for EOSSAA

Glengarry District High School has qualified two curling teams to compete at EOSSAA, which is scheduled for March 4 and 5 in Pembroke.

The Gaels girls rink garnered SD&G gold in Morrisburg on Tuesday. After qualifying for the day of play from round-one results the previous week in Cornwall, the girls started their playoff action with a game against St. Joseph’s CSS, winning to advance to the championship match.

North Dundas DHS provided the opposition, in what coach Lindsey Howes described as “a really great, back-and-forth game.”

Glengarry prevailed with a “nice heavy draw, tap to sit on the button.” The final score was 7-4 for GDHS, sealing the championship for the Gaels.

Joining the girls team at EOSSAA will be Glengarry’s mixed rink of Abbey Lowe, Rowan McPherson, Virginia Vander Byl, and Matthew Bill. The quartet automatically qualified for the regional bonspiel, as there were no SD&G opponents.

As for the boys rink of Addison Hay (skip), Braeden Hay (third), Camden Van Loon (second), and Caleb Raymond (lead), they opted to compete in the separate Ontario School Curling Championships, advancing to the provincial event in Chatham where they garnered bronze. Please see this previous story for all the details.

Glengarry’s mixed team of Abbey Lowe, Rowan McPherson, Virginia Vander Byl, and Matthew Bill has automatically qualified for EOSSAA, scheduled for March 4 and 5 in Pembroke, as there were no opponents to face them at the SD&G bonspiel.

The Gaels boys opted out of the SD&G event to focus on the Ontario School Curling Championships, underway today in Chatham. Their first game is this afternoon.

They qualified for the event after winning the regional round earlier this month in Deep River. The rink includes Liam Filion, Camden Van Loon, Braeden Hay, and Addison Hay, and is coached by Lindsey Howes.

A rink of ladies from the Lancaster Curling club won two games in Dundas County but fell just short, on points, of claiming the title at the Morrisburg Ladies Invitational.

Patti McLeod, Cheryl Lariviere, Heather Marsh, and Colleen MacCulloch totalled 16 points, finishing second in the final standings behind Navan, which had 19. The Lancaster ladies won the “team curling pong” 50/50.

The puck dropped on the 2019-20 SDGAA high school girls hockey season on Monday in Morrisburg, where the Tagwi Warriors and St. Joseph’s Panthers both went 2-0 on the day as the only unbeaten squads.

Tagwi blanked Glengarry, in the Gaels return to the high school ice, 5-0, and topped Char-Lan 5-2.

St. Joseph’s beat La Citadelle 7-2 and edged the Crusaders 3-1.

Char-Lan closed out its day with a win, at the expense of Glengarry, 4-1. Ellie MacKinnon scored for the Gaels in what was their third loss, as the girls were blanked previously 2-0 by Holy Trinity.

GD coach Glen Campbell, who was thrilled to be able to ice a team this year and see the Gaels compete again, says he was pleased with the effort he saw from the girls. In particular, Abby Hardy in net and Lauren Noseworthy on defence had a solid day.

GD Gaels to return to high school girls hockey

Glengarry District High School will ice a girls hockey team this winter, returning to the game after an absence of several years.

Coach Glen Campbell, who recently finalized his roster, tells me that his group includes four girls who have never played hockey. The other team members come from community league ‘C’ or house programs. “Our main focus is on participation and having fun.”

The Gaels are one of six schools to compete in the SDGAA girls high school hockey league, with the season running from December through to February.

Playing for the Glengarry squad are Lauren Noseworthy, Zoe McIntosh, Mya Campbell, Keira Kennedy, Brianna Bellefeuille, Abby Hardy, Ella Campbell, Grace Graham, Kaisa Este, Olivia Roman, Ellie MacKinnon, and Sarah MacGillivray.

The puck drops on the girls season Monday in Morrisburg.

As has been the case in recent years, GDHS will not have a boys hockey team this season.
