Crescent students dominate military remembrance challenge
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.
