The Celtics junior C lacrosse team, which includes several county players, has a 4-1 record so far this season. The squad is scheduled to next play on Thursday, June 5 at Cornwall's multi-sport complex. Game time is set for 8pm versus Kingston. Watch for Blain MacKay wearing #16, Quin MacDonell donning jersey #3, Liam Vipond as #24, and Brendan Vipond as #8.
Unfortunately, we ran out of space in the June 4 edition of The Glengarry News to get this achievement into the newspaper. Last Sunday, all four Glengarry Gaels football teams won their games.
The mosquitos blanked Russell 31-0, the tykes beat Cornwall #1 with a 35-25 effort, the peewees shut down Cornwall for a 35-0 triumph, and the bantams prevailed 23-6 over Russell.
The Glengarry tykes, mosquitos, and peewees are all tied for first place in their divisions, while the bantams remain perfect at 4-0 for tops in their group and are already guaranteed a home playoff date, with two regular-season matches remaining.
Here are three photos from the May 27 girls soccer EOSSAA tournament in Alexandria. The photos were shot by our co-op student, Hayley Currier. For more photos, see our photo galleries and the June 4 edition of The Glengarry News.
Several pole vaulters from Char-Lan DHS, under the guidance of coach Rory Blackadder, had fine performances at East Regionals track and field last week, led by Brennan Seguin, who broke the midget boys record with a jump of 3.35 m. Emma Pasco won the midget girls event with a 2.40 m effort. Other Char-Lan results: Mackayla Petrie (2.10 m for 4th in midget girls), McKenna Mulhearn (2.25 m for second in junior girls), Ally Lecky (2.70 m for second in senior girls), and Nik Danaher (2.55 m for 4th in midget boys).
The athletes will be heading to OFSAA later this week in Mississauga.
