So the 2013-14 school year and our team’s greatest season in history comes to an end. It was a pleasure to work with the team in my first year as captain. It was great to see all your faces at practice consistently, and our club has grown in size quite a bit since our humble beginning that long pre-date my stay at Colonel By. We’ve come a long way since then, and I’m very proud of each and every one of you, so give yourself a good pat on the back!
We won every non-novice high school Quizbowl tournament, not losing a single game against high school competition, finishing the season with a 100% record at 49-0. For the first time ever, we were the Quizbowl champions of Ontario!
We also excelled in Reach for the Top, where we won a regional tournament, the city championship, and placed tied for 7th at Reach Provincials. Our record in Reach was 36-3 overall.
That makes our overall record this year at 85-3 overall against high schools. This is not to mention that for the first time ever, we played collegiate tournaments against universities such as uOttawa, Carleton, Waterloo, McMaster and Toronto, defeating each of them at least once, and placing as high as 4th.
Here’s to another season of enjoyment and success this following 2014-15 school year!
