Celebrating Athletic Excellence at KES

The coaching staff at King’s-Edgehill School seized the opportunity to celebrate excellence in athletics at our Annual Varsity Athletic Banquet on the evening of May 28th. Most Outstanding Contributor awards were presented to 33 athletes in 40 varsity programmes. Just short of 50 faculty and staff coaches were present at the banquet, along with three volunteer assistant coaches. There were also a number of special prizes given out, including the prestigious Scholar-Athlete and the Athlete of the Year awards. This is a mandatory full-school event and everyone was looking forward to the always-amazing slide show. Thanks to Ms. Kleiner for continuing to take on this challenge for the last number of years. Thanks to all the coaches for their personal reflections and anecdotes. The big winners of the evening were:

Senior Male Scholar Athlete - Jacob Hunt
Jacob is a very mature and respectful young gentleman and an exceptional student-athlete. He stood out as one of our Senior Prep Hockey programmes’ most dedicated players. He thrives on hard work and determination in all aspects of his life. Although his love is hockey, our track team was fortunate to have him contribute to our Varsity Track Programme. He was impressive in the high jump where he qualified at Regionals with a BRONZE medal performance to advance to Provincials, placing in the top 10. Jacob not only competed in varsity athletics in all three terms, and with the many miles traveled throughout the winter hockey term, but he did this while being a full IB Diploma candidate. He was able to balance his many commitments and produce academic results in the mid to high 90s.

Senior Female Scholar Athlete and Female Athlete of the Year – Téa Racozzi
In her time at KES, Téa has participated in the following senior varsity sports: Volleyball, Cross Country Running, Girls’ Soccer, Wrestling, Snowboarding, and Senior Girls’ Rugby. This year alone she captained and was the most outstanding contributor for Soccer, Wrestling and Rugby, while winning Provincial Championships with the Senior Girls Snowboarding and Cross Country Running teams. Academically, Téa was enrolled in three IB courses, as well as History, Physics, Chemistry and Calculus. With seven courses, she produced an impressive average in the mid-90s, while exceling on the mat, winning Provincials as well as a SILVER medal at the U-19 National Wrestling Championships this spring. This is the best result for any wrestler from the province this year. Téa has also been recognized by Wrestling Nova Scotia as the top Female Senior High School Wrestler for 2018-19. Téa has been recruited in both wrestling and rugby to various university programmes and is likely going to do both varsity sports at Concordia, while enrolling in Biochemistry.

Senior Athlete of the Year - Luis Espinosa
Luis has been involved in varsity athletics in each of the three terms this year. He is a gifted and very talented varsity athlete who excels in Cross Country Running, D1 Soccer, Snowboarding and Track. He was one of the most talented and physically fit members of our competitive Senior Boys Soccer team, while placing 4th in the Regional Cross Country championships as our top male runner this fall. He was the lone member of the Provincial Championship team from last year. The winter term was spent on the hill with the Snowboard team training and competing in the Regional race series and championships. Luis came into his own this spring with excellent results on the Track. He exploded at the Track Provincials with three GOLD medals, in the 400 m, 800 m and the Senior Boys 4 X 400. He was the first KES student to break the 2-minute barrier for the 800 m. He also broke a 32-year-old School record to put his performance in perspective.

Junior Female Athlete of the Year - Bella Galaise
Bella is an exemplary athlete, having competed on the Prep Hockey Team and representing our School at a National level in Wrestling. A native of Prince Edward Island, she is strong and smart with a great team spirit. Bella lifts up her teammates with skill and awareness of others. She will enter the Senior School with a formidable athletic resume and reputation.

Junior Male Athlete of the Year - Mitchell Dinn
At the age of 14, Mitchell backstopped our U-18 Hockey team as the goaltender with agility, quickness and drive. The native of Windsor/Grad Falls, Newfoundland, is a strong student who also is adept at Basketball, Track and Baseball. He is widely known for his abilities and has met the challenge. He has a bright future in hockey.

Junior Male Scholar Athlete of the Year - Mitchell Larkin
Mitchell is a fast skier who represented Nova Scotia at the Canada Winter Games in Alberta. He is a top student and cadet with exemplary demeanour and deportment at all times. He excels in the classroom across the curriculum and glides on the snow.

Junior Female Scholar Athlete of the Year - Maya Faucher
Maya played Varsity Soccer and Rugby in while being in Grade 9. An excellent student with an enviable work ethic, she is a key fixture in all aspects of campus life. Also known to play Hockey or Basketball if needed, she is adaptable, dependable and skilled. She even found time to play the lead in our Junior School Musical.
