The week before March Break in Ontario high school athletics​ was exciting and intense with the GECDSB well-represented on all fronts. 

Windsor hosted OFSAA swimming this year and the GECDSB had a tremendous showing with Leamington’s Maddy Lavoie winning gold in the open girls’ 100-metre individual medley with a time of 1:04:39 to go with her silver medal in open 100 metre breaststroke Massey’s Leon Ouyang winning gold in the open boys’ 200-metre individual medley with a time of 2:08:95 and Westview’s Julia Lane taking silver in the para girls’ 50-metre backstroke in 52.80​.

The highly recognized Riverside Rebels girls' volleyball team (pictured right, below) made their way to Kenora for the AA volleyball championships. Going into the tournament with an riverside girls.pngimpressive regular season and playoff record, they were favourites to medal at the championships and they did not disappoint. The Rebels took home the silver medal after falling to Oakville's Garth Webb 0-3 in the provincial final.

The Kennedy Clippers went to Timmins to participate in the boys' AA basketball championships and had a 2-1 win-loss record, but they did not advance to medal play. Their one loss in the tournament was against Bishop McDonell (51-68) who then proceeded to become AA OFSAA champions.
The Massey Mustangs girls' and boys' curling teams both participated in the Curling Championships in North Bay and both maintained a steady win-lose ratio in pool play - Girls 3:1 and Boys 2:2 - but unfortunately it was not enough to move on to the playoff round. 

The General Amherst Bulldogs ventured to Ottawa to participate in the A/AA boys' ice hockey championships and held a 1-3 record in pool competition, which did not allow them to move on to medal competition.
