Celebrating Excellence: LCS Students Shine in Fall 2023 Co-Curricular Awards Ceremony

In a spirit of camaraderie and celebration, Lakefield College School honoured its students' remarkable achievements in both athletics and the arts at the Fall 2023 Co-Curricular Awards Ceremony. The event, held to recognize the dedication and talent of LCS students, showcased a diverse range of accomplishments in various programs.

Athletics Triumphs
The LCS community witnessed outstanding performances in a plethora of sports this fall. The sailing program demonstrated exceptional skills in three regattas held in Buffalo, Rousseau Lake, and on home turf. On the soccer pitch, both Junior and Senior teams made it to the semi-finals, displaying sheer determination and sportsmanship. The second boys' team, with unwavering grit, nearly pulled off an upset against TCS in the quarter-finals, leaving a lasting impression. The Senior boys' team, despite being a last-minute entry, represented LCS admirably at the CAIS national tournament.

Field hockey teams showed remarkable improvement, showcasing their resilience in the playoffs, narrowly missing victory against the eventual CISAA champions. Junior Volleyball finished first in the regular season, demonstrating their prowess, while Junior Basketball and the Flag Football team embraced positive seasons marked by growth and enjoyment. Cross-country events hosted on campus witnessed stellar performances, with Isabel ’27 securing a spot at OFSAA, a testament to her outstanding abilities.

In the grand finale, both Senior Volleyball and Senior Basketball teams showcased their prowess, with the boys clinching the CISAA championship in a thrilling 5-set match, securing their third consecutive title. The girls, displaying dominance and skill, won the CISAA championship, marking their first victory in 15 years, much to the delight of the spirited crowd in the LCS gym.

Artistic Brilliance
The fall term also witnessed the blossoming creativity of LCS students in the arts. Campus Art students transformed the campus with their imaginative projects, from Northcote vegetable signs to charming classroom planters and delightful pumpkins adorning the dining hall. The Culinary Arts program, under the guidance of Chef Evan Podd and Mr. Milburn, saw students honing their culinary skills, exploring a diverse array of dishes and savouring the fruits of their labour.

The LCS Dance Company, gearing up for their 20th-anniversary showcase, "20," promises an extraordinary celebration of dance excellence on the Bryan Jones Theatre stage. Over 70 dancers, along with student choreographers, dance captains, and dedicated instructors, will grace the stage from November 22 to November 24, captivating the audience with their passion and talent.

As the fall term co-curricular activities drew to a close, LCS students showcased not only their athletic and artistic abilities but also their dedication, teamwork, and sportspersonship. The school community eagerly anticipates the upcoming Winter Term Co-Curriculars, confident that the spirit of excellence will continue to thrive in all endeavours. 

Congratulations to everyone on a successful and inspiring Fall Term at Lakefield College School!
