Athletes of the Week

Athletes of the Week are selected based on athletic performance and sportsmanship. Positive sporting behaviour is valued at KES and integral to our athletic philosophy and School mission statement emphasizing gentleness, learning, dignity, and respect. These student athletes also reflect the seven principles of “true sport” which states: go for it, play fair, respect others, keep it fun, stay healthy, include everyone, and give back. 

For the week of May 19, 2024:

Most of us have difficulty jumping feet first into a new adventure, but not this intrepid Junior School student-athlete. Marlowe Lister Wade '29 has the confidence to jump high into the air headfirst, backward, and then land on her back. That takes courage. This past weekend Marlowe jumped higher than she ever has and landed in fifth place in the Western Region Track and Field Championships. Well done Marlowe!
Calum O'Callaghan '27 pitched four solid innings against the 18U AAA Hants North Jays only giving up a couple of hits and striking out four, along with picking up the win. He also went one for two with a base hit. Great work Calum!
Skye Hussey '26 is new to track and field and somehow landed in one of the most technical events. Triple jump requires the most coordination of any track and field event at our level, and Skye has certainly proven that she is coordinated. This past weekend at the Western Region Championships Skye had one of the biggest improvements of the weekend as she hopped, skipped and jumped 47 cm further than she has ever triple jumped. Well done Skye!

Jeremy Aigbe '25 has been the best example this season of just giving something new a try. Jeremy tried track this spring and found that he was pretty good at sprinting. One day, while walking around Hermann Field he decided to join the jumpers. Very quickly it was too plain to see that Jeremy had springs for legs. A week later he won districts, and two weeks later he won a gold medal by placing first in the senior boys long jump. Jeremy proves that you should always just try something new!
