Tagwi aiming to bring high school football back

Tagwi Secondary School is aiming to return to the high school gridiron this fall, if there is sufficient interest. A student meeting is planned for this week.

Here is the full text of the announcement:

Attention all current Grade 8,9,10,11, and returning Grade 12 students who are interested in playing varsity football next year. There will be a VERY important meeting on Wednesday at 11:33 in the Weight Room. The purpose of the meeting will be to determine if there is enough student commitment and interest to field a varsity football team next year. It is imperative that any student interested in playing football next year attends this meeting. Fielding a football team requires a large time commitment on behalf of both the community and teacher coaches as well as students-athletes. Therefore, students that are interested in playing football next year, need to consider the time they will need to commit to after-school practices, games, fundraising initiatives, as well as their academics. If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school to speak with Mr. Coleman.

In following up with school athletics coordinator Brandon Coleman, the plan is to use this meeting to make a decision one way or the other, as the league needs a commitment now to facilitate planning for the fall season.

It is already known that league-wide, the junior division has been scrapped for the 2016 season, much to the chagrin of GDHS coaches who valued this level for the development of players. The league plan is for a varsity level only, which means each school entered can field one team of players in any grade.

There was also grumbling last year from the Catholic schools in the Cornwall area about GDHS' joint program with VCI (an initiative that has benefited kids at both schools and football in general in the area. Some expect this matter to be once again contentious.

We will follow these issues and have more details in The Glengarry News in the weeks and months ahead.

Coach reflects on experience guiding Glengarry tyke football team

Glengarry's tyke football team fell to 0-3 on the season with a 51-18 loss on Sunday, in Alexandria. Gaels touchdowns came from Travis Brisbois (2) and Jacob Menard. Among the other Glengarry highlights was the play of Connor McDougall, who had big runs on offence and strong blocking.

The game was tight through to the third quarter, where the Cornwall Black Wildcats led by just two points. 

For photos from the game, please see our online gallery.

Assistant coach Simon Korteweg says of his time working with the tykes, "I love coaching them.

We've come a long way since the first practice, and we're only getting better."

Race fans: drivers are ready to start their engines

We are only a few days away from the official start to the 2016 racing season at the Cornwall Motor Speedway. On Tuesday (May 10), drivers will get their first practice runs on the track, and the event is open to the public.

For the first time in many years, Cornwall has scheduled a Test and Tune night that will permit drivers to test their cars and the technical team to verify several aspects of the vehicles, such as security features. Running this event in the evening will give drivers a chance to test on conditions similar to what they find at a regular Sunday race. 

Gates will open at 5pm, with the first practice scheduled to start at 6:30pm. Each class will have its own session that will last for approximately 10 minutes. All regular classes will have three or four sessions over the course of the evening, with time also set aside for the visiting series.

Spectator entry is $10 per person. Unfortunately, access to the newly rebuilt grandstands will not be permitted, as the final inspection is only scheduled for later in the week.
