Ontario Scholastic Basketball Association
King’s Christian Collegiate is proud to announce a our entry into the Ontario Scholastic Basketball Association. Starting in the 2016-2017 school year, both the men’s and women’s teams will be competing in this elite basketball league featuring some of the top high school programs in the province.
The men’s team is excited to announce Zelimir Stevanovic as head coach. Zelemir is a coach with an outstanding pedigree. Zelimir is a former professional basketball player with more than 20 years of basketball experience both in the US and in Europe. His basketball career began in Serbia and continued at the University of Pittsburgh before he held professional contracts in France, Italy, and Cyprus. Zelimir has been involved with the King’s Christian Collegiate Basketball program since 2015 and brings with him an outstanding understanding of the game and an ability to develop players’ abilities in a significant way. The women’s team will be coached by Eric Bulthuis, a coach who has been at King’s developing the program for the last seven years. It is our belief that this new program will continue to grow significantly under the leadership of these two coaches.
At King’s Christian Collegiate, the pursuit of excellence for the Glory of God is something that is clear in all facets of the education offered. This is another opportunity where students at King’s will have their talents utilized and developed while being surounded and supported by encouraging leaders.
We are excited about this opportunity for our school and basketball program, but most important, we are excited to offer another program that will engage and challenge students to achieve greatness.
Golf – 2015
2015 marked another great season for the King’s Christian Collegiate golf team as they were able to build on a very successful 2014 campaign. This year saw the team make it through to Golden Horseshoe Athletic Conference (GHAC) regional chapmionship for a second straight year where, not only did Kyle MacDonald defend his GHAC championship, the team was able to win GHAC as well qualifying the boys for Ontario Federation of Secondary Schools (OFSAA) championship in Kingsville. At OFSAA they were able to put on a very strong showing finishing 7th out of 20 teams, many of which are schools with much larger student bodies. Special acknowledgment should be given to team leader Kyle MacDonald who finished in the top 20 of a field of over 120 of the best golfers in Ontario. Congratulations on another great season to the golf team, Kyle MacDonald, Braydon Evans, Alex Matheson, Josh Hiebert and Robert Winch.
King’s 2015 Basketball Season
Congratulations to King’s Alum, Victoria Bach for her outstanding season at Boston University. Victoria scored 20 goals in her first season with the Terriers and earned Rookie of the year honours for her conference as well. Victoria played for both the men’s and women’s hockey programs at King’s leading the women’s hockey team to the Ontario Championships in their first season. She also led them to multiple tournament championships, and is credited with scoring the first goal in King’s Hockey history. Congratulations Victoria!
2015 OFSAA Wrestling Championships
The 2015 OFSAA Wrestling Championships, held in Windsor, Ontario, was the site of historic firsts for your King’s Cavaliers wrestling team.
Three wrestlers qualified for the tournament by placing at the GHAC Conference qualifier at the end of February. Because of their successes this year, and their placings at the Provincial Championships earlier in the month, Philipp Summer, Maddy Delle Donne, and Kaila Sloat each earned a top five seed going into the tournament. All three grapplers made it to Day Two, an accomplishment in itself. At the end of Day Two, Summer and Delle Donne became the first King’s wrestlers to ever reach the podium, earning a sixth-place medal at this prestigious competition. Delle Donne also has the honour of being the first King’s 4x OFSAA Representative. Sloat wrestled strong enough to be considered Top Ten in her weight class, completing the most successful post-season showings in Cavaliers wrestling history.
Congratulations to these three wrestlers, and the entire wrestling team, for their successes this year!
