Posted on

By Ross Johnston

The men’s extramural hockey team crashed out of their winter invitational tournament, but not for lack of effort or ability.

After suffering an early morning loss to George Brown, the Colts went on to defeat the home teams of Seneca York and Seneca Newnham.

Colts coach Jordan Robinson is optimistic about the team’s future and says that their single loss was due to an unusual start time.

“We...

“There’s no point in playing as an individual,” Wade said. “We win as a team, and we lose as a team. One thing these guys need to learn to do is how to play to...

The Centennial Colts women´s basketball team lost in a discouraging defeat against the Loyalist Lancers last Thursday.

The game finalized with a difference of 16–51, in a solitaire performance where the visiting team was allowed to exploit Centennial´s short bench. The lady Colts only dressed seven for the affair due to injuries on the roster.

From beginning to end, the Colts were unable to establish their pace, spending most of the game playing catch-up. The first minutes of the game were a mere prelude for a long, hard-to-enjoy show; there...

It’s the stuff basketball dreams are made of.

It’s the 1998 NBA Finals, in the dying moments of Game six. You’re a win away from hoisting your sixth league title in eight years, but your team’s down by a point. A loss forces an unpredictable seventh game. You win, and you leave the court a champion.

The game looks lost when suddenly, with hardly any time left, you steal the ball from your opponent, jog...

Nineteen year-old Bena Klimaszewska sits slouched in a tiger striped easy chair in back of Pam’s Cafe on Queen St. in the Beaches area. She is comfortable, in familiar surroundings, yet there is a slight edginess about her. Almost as if she is missing something. She plays with her ring on her finger and continually strikes her short blonde hair. Klimaszewska is longing for her lost love; volleyball.

Klimaszewska, a Centennial Colts girls...
