OUA – rugby & hockey winners on the weekend; Swimmer earns 5 medals

Caption: The Old Brigade hockey team for the third year in a row played a spirited game against cadets – mostly first years – on Reunion Weekend. The OB team was comprised of Ex Cadets mostly from the Class of 1970 who just entered the Old Brigade this year. They were augmented by a few ‘ringers’ from other OB Classes going back as far to 1965 – John Adams – back row centre with the glasses. The coach in a baseball catchers stance is Bas Wheeler – one of the top hockey Redmen over the past 50 years. Bas is wearing a fedora much the same as his former coach, The Major Danny McLeod. We bet that if anyone asked him – “Why the fedora?” The answer would be, “In honour of Danny.”

RMCC swimmer lands bountiful medal harvest

By Kommy Farahani

The laser-focused training at the pool in freezing zero dark thirty hours in the winter delivered sweet results at the 2015 Ontario Masters Swimming championship in Etobicoke, during the Easter weekend. RMCC swimmer Nicholas Swanson (IV) captured 3 Bronze and 2 Silver medals in Breast, Fly and IM events in succession of two days during the provincial championship. The venue also served as the Canadian Forces National Championship. Many College alumni swimmers of yesteryears had travelled from coast to coast to test the waters in their preparation for the 6th CISM world games in Korea this October. When a flight was late arriving, Nicholas was called on the last minute to fill in for the Forces Team in the 4×200 Free. The newly refurbished pool at Etobicoke Olympium hosted 1310 swim races in this championship with swimmers ranging in age from 18 to 91. The team will reconvene early morning practices after the FYOP period. The infusion of newly minted OCdts at RMCC in the ranks of both the competitive and multisport divisions of the team is always exciting and greatly anticipated.

See you early in the pool.

    It was tremendous to watch the RMC rugby team literally dominate the Waterloo Warriors on the inner field this past Saturday afternoon. Their play was significantly more disciplined, with Waterloo taking far more penalties than RMC. The whole team was committed to rucks and quick ball movement and rewarded on many occassions. They used the wind to their advantage, when they had it.

    The flyhalf particularly stood out for me. A confident ball mover with some good size – seems like we have a really solid player in a key position.

    It was a brisk day with that strong wind off the lake. Still, it would have been good to see a lot more of their fellow students out to support this hard working crew on home ground. It was RMC, not Waterloo, that were the Warriors on Saturday.

    I hope to be at the match this Friday. Good luck, lads, and thank you for an entertaining fixture.
