Crescent students dom­i­nate mil­i­tary re­mem­brance chal­lenge

The Compass - - ORTHTE -

Crescent Col­le­giate won the fourth an­nual Mil­i­tary Re­mem­brance Chal­lenge, hosted by the Spa­niard’s Bay branch of the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion on May 17.

Crescent Col­le­giate of Blake­town was one of three area high schools to take part in the com­pe­ti­tion, along with As­cen­sion Col­le­giate of Bay Roberts and Car­bon­ear Col­le­giate.

The com­pe­ti­tion was set as a dou­ble round-robin tour­na­ment, with all teams play­ing each other twice. Af­ter round-robin play, Crescent Col­le­giate re­mained un­de­feated, win­ning each game with su­pe­rior re­sults. In the cham­pi­onship game, Crescent Col­le­giate demon­strated great knowl­edge and abil­ity, soundly de­feat­ing As­cen­sion Col­le­giate by a score of 255 to 140.

Le­gion­naire Ge­orge Brown acted as nar­ra­tor for the chal­lenge; other mem­bers served as judges, score­keep­ers and time­keep­ers.

Or­ga­niz­ers hope to ex­tend next year’s com­pe­ti­tion to in­clude all high schools on the Avalon Penin­sula.
