Sudbury – On September 27, 45 grade 7 and 8 students (34 boys and 11 girls) from nine Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario (CSCNO) schools took part in the 5th annual CSCNO golf tournament. This competition enabled the talented St-Denis (Sudbury), St-Joseph (Sudbury), Félix-Ricard (Sudbury), St-Augustin (Garson), Jean-Paul II (Val Caron), Notre-Dame (Hamner), Ste-Marie (Azilda), Alliance St-Joseph (Chelmsford) and Saint-Joseph (Espanola) golfers to benefit from a friendly competitive encounter with fellow students from neighbouring French Catholic schools.

For a fifth consecutive year, the four-player team from Sudbury’s École St-Denis claimed the top prize with an average score of 50.75. École Jean-Paul II (Val Caron) followed in second place with an average score of 56.25, while École Félix-Ricard (Sudbury) came in third with a 61 average score.

In addition to the team results, five boys and three girls earned recognition for their individual efforts.

Mrs. Lyse-Anne Papineau, Director of Education at the CSCNO, strongly believes in the merit of these competitions. “Our elementary schools’ sports and intramural leagues enable our students to strengthen their athletic and social skills in a French Catholic environment. While these quality activities contribute to the health and well-being of our students at the elementary level, we also focus on excellence in our secondary schools, as can be confirmed by our students’ success at the regional, provincial and national levels.”
