Kelvin Clippers Complete Back To Back Titles At Canadian High School Ultimate Championships.
Canadian Ultimate – May 6, 2019 — The 2019 edition of the Canadian High School Ultimate Championships (CHSUC) is in the books and it was one to remember.
Over the weekend, 16 high schools from across the country came to Ottawa with the hopes of competing for the title at CHSUC, which took place at Carleton University.
The reigning champions from 2018, Kelvin High School, from Winnipeg, MB, went on an undefeated run to the finals and continued that momentum in the gold medal game to complete back to back championships.
The final was a rematch of the 2018 championship game, with the Bowmanville Talons taking the silver medal for a second year in a row. This year, the Talons fell 13-2 to the Clippers, but with 13 players in grade 11, we are sure to be seeing them in this conversation again in 2020.
Cassidy Knockaert of the Kelvin Clippers was awarded the Most Valuable Player award after her consistent and dominant performance from the whole weekend.
The Gray Academy Raiders, also from Winnipeg, MB, took home the bronze medal in their first ever appearance at CHSUC. The four teams in attendance from Winnipeg all impressed over the weekend with all four taking spots in the Quarterfinals. St. John’s-Ravenscourt finished in fifth place while Westgate Mennonite College finished in eighth.
