As a 15-year-old, Barnes led the U18 AAA Colts with 52 points in 39 games in 2017-18. more

Shooting for Gold with Hannah Rousseau.

Shooting for Gold with Hannah Rousseau.

Grade 10 student, Hannah Rousseau won first place in archery at OFSAA. Her goal was to beat her score from last year, when she won silver. OFSAA was held in Richmond Hill in mid-May.

“There are a few girls that I have met at these tournaments and we have a healthy, competitive friendship so we push each other,” shared Hannah. “Winning this year was great. First to fifth place, after the first half, were only separated by five points—so I was stressed! I had to focus and tweak a few things in my form to make sure every arrow counted. The second half I had my highest score to date with a 290/300, which was the third highest half of the tournament, including the boys division. I was very pleased with my hard work!”

CharLan District High School is the only school in the UCDSB that offers the National Archery in the Schools Program. They have an archery setup and they offer archery in gym class.

Hannah started archery in 2014, after seeing her father shooting to prepare for a moose hunt. She says part of the reason she enjoys archery so much is because of the quality time she gets to spend with her father. This summer she wants to harvest a deer using her bow. more

Hurdling to OFSAA with Stephanie Leask.

Hurdling to OFSAA with Stephanie Leask.

When Stephanie Leask was in grade three, her school let her compete against the grade fours, fives, and sixes. She beat them all and won the 400m race.

Now Stephanie is a grade 12 student at Holy Trinity Catholic High School. She has attended OFSAA for track and field before, in grade ten, and she is on the path to qualifying again this year. Heading into East Regionals at the end of May, Stephanie is looking to qualify for OFSAA in the 400m hurdles.

Coming from an athletic family, Stephanie also played hockey, soccer, and basketball throughout high school. Some concussions from hockey forced Stephanie to stop playing sports where there is contact with other players. This has left her to focus on track and field, which she said is fine by her because she loves running. more

Maleeka Virtue Selected as Weightlifting Award.

Maleeka Virtue Selected as Weightlifting Award.

Maleeka Virtue is not a typical weightlifter. Or is she? One of the outstanding characteristics of sports, fitness, and athletics in this day and age is that the atypical is the new typical, and that is certainly true of Maleeka, this year’s Lions’ Club Weightlifting Award winner.

“She has shown the most drive and dedication of any club member this year,” according to Kyle Pichie of the Cornwall Weightlifting Club, which currently trains out of Caveman Strong. “In the long term, she has tremendous potential By Casey Leger as a weightlifter,” says Pichie, who coaches and trains club members.

That’s high praise, and it’s certainly justified: at 14, Maleeka is 2 kilos (4.4 lbs.) away from breaking the juvenile record of 53 kilos (116.6 lbs.) for the “snatch”, which is one of her favorite lifts. She competes in the under 48 kilo division, and if you’ve followed the math, she weighs in at a maximum of 105.6 pounds, so she’s lifting above her body weight. Not impressed yet? This grade eight student is squatting 185 pounds on a regular basis. more

Ellery Maloney, recently spoke with Sports Energy News to remember his friend Pete Piquette. Piquette was a local hockey goaltender in the 1940’s and 50’s who saw great success in his hockey career, landing him a spot in the Cornwall Sports Hall of Fame. Maloney says he’s known Pete and his wife Betty for most of his life.

“We both played hockey, we were both goaltenders on separate teams. We’ve been such close friends since our early teens,” says Maloney. “We were in each other’s wedding parties as well.”

Pete Piquette was an exceptional good goaltender and he started his junior hockey with the Cornwall Community Sports Club. Piquette was soon called to play with the Oshawa Generals Jr. A team in the OHA, (Currently OHL). Maloney recalls one of the highlights of Piquette’s time with the Generals was his encounter with George Armstrong, an All-Star player with the Toronto Maple Leafs. more
