André Hérbert: The Story of a Passionate Local Fisherman By Molly Kett


ndré Hérbert was born in Ottawa, but moved to the Lancaster area when he was ten-years-old. Growing up in a rural area, Hérbert was extremely fond of the outdoors from this young age. “Being on the river meant swimming, waterskiing, snorkelling, and of course fishing in the summer; and in the winter it meant a skating rink on the river and building snow forts out here and things like that. From very early on I’ve always felt that Lake St-Francis is an important and beautiful place. It’s a naturally and historically rich body of water that I’ve revered my entire life,” says Hérbert. “The respect and appreciation I have for this body of water is a huge part of who I am today and how I’ve developed my self-identity.”

Hérbert has fishing memories from a very young age as well. “I remember specifically one summer afternoon where my parents had family over and I was catching a rock bass over and over again off the dock and proudly showing it to everyone each time,” says Hérbert. “Rock bass are very territorial and will attack anything that comes near their nests, including unsuspecting humans. Poor fish.” In terms of his favourite fishing memory, Hérbert says fishing is all about creating lasting memories and that he has hundreds of them. If he had to pick just one, it would be the first time his grandpa took him perch fishing. “He had this green beast of a fibreglass boat he made himself. The thing would rattle and shake like a rollercoaster with the slightest chop,” says Hérbert. “I remember that

morning well because we stopped at a McDonalds before going out and it was the first time I’d ever tried an egg McMuffin. It’s funny what sticks with you sometimes.” Hérbert truly has a deep love for fishing and aquatic life. “In my opinion there is nothing man-made that comes close to what nature can provide. I think my love for fishing, in particular, stems from the mysterious aura that we associate with water. I think as humans we’re intrinsically attracted to it,” says Hérbert. “When I was in school all I could think of was getting home to go out fishing. I watched all the TV shows, read all the magazines, became a total nut basically. With time I put in, like anything in life, I got better at it. I started writing about fishing, met a lot of like-minded people and learned a lot of tricks of the trade. Now I think what I love most is the personal challenge it

provides. I absolutely love figuring out new patterns, finding new spots, learning new techniques, learning fish biology and behaviour, etc. The great thing about fishing is you could spend multiples lifetimes doing it, but there will always be something new to learn and new places to fish.” Although at this point Hérbert is an experienced fisherman who has fished a wide variety of locations, his favourite place to fish is still Lake St. Francis, for the beauty and the challenge this body of water offers him as a fisherman. For those who haven’t tried fishing, Hérbert says he would tell them to get out of the house and enjoy a day outside. “Yes, catching fish is fun, and over time you will get better at it, but the main thing is to get out there. Like Bob Izumi says, the worst day fishing is better than the best day at the office,” says Hérbert.

Cornwall Colts Edition…Marly Quince

By Molly Kett


arly Quince grew up in a small town in Northern Ontario called Sioux Lookout. He’s a big fan of all sports, loves to fish, and has a “knack” for the outdoors. He also played for the Cornwall Colts over the last four years and is currently on a scholarship at Clarkson University.

It’s no surprise Quince has seen so much success in hockey. Growing up, he was always at the hockey rink. “I started skating at the age of three and joined the local minor hockey league at the age of seven,” says Quince. “My dad makes an outdoor rink in our back yard every year, which helped me tremendously in my hockey development. One of my first memories on the ice was playing on the outdoor rink. Because we didn’t have goalies we would put a piece of firewood at each end. You would have to hit the piece of wood to get a goal.” Come high school, Quince was

still dedicated to the sport. In ninth grade, Quince played for the local high school team in Sioux Lookout, as well as for the AA Paper Kings in Dryden, which was an hour away from Sioux. At fifteen, Quince moved to Thunder Bay where he played minor midget AAA and major midget AAA for the Thunder Bay Kings.

Two years later, Quince found himself playing with the Colts. “There were a lot of great opportunities that came with playing on the team, but the best part would have to be the relationships I developed with teammates and fans. My teammates are now lifelong friends. The fans were always very supportive, and a lot of fun to play in front of,” says Quince. Quince has been at Clarkson for two months now and says he loves it. “It’s definitely a step up from junior hockey, but I’m finding my spot on the team,” says Quince. “We have a strong team this year, which makes playing time very competitive. The biggest difference I see between junior hockey and NCAA is the work you have to do off the ice. I’ve learnt that the time you spend off-ice, in the gym, and taking care of your body is just as important as what you do on the ice.” For Quince’s future, he has both short-term and long-term goals. “Short term is focused on this year, I would like to have at least 15 points this season and play a minimum of 25 games. My two main long term goals are to play professional hockey after the NCAA and to graduate with a business degree from Clarkson.

Mackayla Petrie was waterskiing before she started following her brother Mackenzie wakeboarding at age 8. As her skills and tricks improved, Mackayla became involved in the two major wakeboarding circuits – The World Wakeboard Association and the International Waterski Wakeboard Federation. This fall, Mackayla boarded herself to a top finish in Portugal at the WWA. A run consisted of 5 tricks that need to be quickly adjusted as they are dependent on the water, the wake, the wind, and the boat. Later this month, Mackayla hopes to participate in IWWF in Cancun, Mexico. This intense competition is organized by an offshoot of the Olympic Wakeboard Committee. A placement at this level gives wakeboarders access to funding and to other competitive meets. Good Luck, Mackayla

Just a few years after she first learned to walk, Allison Oathwaite was already racing down the ski slopes. As a wee 4 year old, Allison competed on regular basis at Titus Mountain where she still competes to this day. She competes in Slalom and Giant Slalom racing and has earned many gold medals over the years. Allison is a 16 year old, Grade 11 student at Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School and last year she had an 87% average. She is one smart gal who knows how to combine athletics and academics! Allison participates in many high school sports including basketball, cross-country, soccer, track & field, curling, and golf. When the snow isn’t falling, Allison plays soccer with the Cornwall Coyotes. Her positive attitude makes her very easy to coach, and she’s always encouraging her teammates. Allison’s long term goal is to downhill ski race for McGill University, and take the Dietician program. We know with all of her positive attributes, she’ll achieve this goal!

Our featured student is Hugo Caya, who is currently in grade 11 at L’Héritage. Hugo participates actively in a number of sports, including track and field and badminton. His passion, however, is volleyball; he has been an important member of the school’s team for a number of years and contributes positively to the team through his quiet leadership. His commitment to volleyball extends beyond school as he is a member Cornwall’s Vikings Volleyball Club. Besides being a gifted athlete, Hugo is an exceptional student. He is consistently on the honour roll and maintains one of the highest averages of his class. Furthermore, Hugo was awarded the Citizenship award for the 2014-2015 school year for his exemplary attitude and positive relationships with others. We are proud to call Hugo a Dragon, as he truly embodies the qualities we strive to develop in our student-athletes.

She also volunteers with the ICE basketball house league as a way of giving back to her team that supported her in her own personal growth and skill level. Jessica is a very well-rounded young lady academically, socially, and athletically

St. Joseph’s Catholic Secondary School is proud to nominate Jonah Proulx as its athlete of the month. Jonah is a grade 12 student, whom Coach Mitch Zapatelli affectionately referred to recently as ‘Lightening Proulx’. He said that this “elite” football player is just that for one reason— dedication. Since grade nine, Jonah has continually grown in every way as a student athlete. He has reached a point where his effectiveness on the field is such that this 5’4” 115 pound speedster is counted on in a sport full of giants to do one thing - “hit the holes”. Jonah’s speed and determination have also allowed him to excel at many sports over the years, having played 9 years of competitive soccer, 5 years high school track, and 10 consecutive years of SD&G cross-country. Along with this fantastic athletic resume, Jonah has managed to maintain an 80% average through all 4 years at SJCSS and we here at St. Joe’s are very proud of all his accomplishments.

Meet Sean Murray - Cornwall Former Cornwall Resident Colts’ Equipment Trainer Astra Groskaufmanis Talks Hockey, being a Hockey Mom and her New Book S By Victoria Klassen

ean Murray’s lifelong passion for hockey eventually led him to his job as the Cornwall Colts’ Junior A equipment trainer. He says he loves hockey and has been involved with it for over 20 years. Murray says he used to watch the practices of the Cornwall Royals, a former Ontario Hockey League team. It was Paul Fixter, a former coach for the Royals, who got Murray involved. Before he began working with the Cornwall Colts, Murray says he worked with the American Hockey League’s Cornwall Aces in 1996, which was their last season. Murray has many duties as an equipment trainer, which include keeping the players’ jerseys ready for games, doing the laundry, and other odd jobs. “Game day is all about hanging the jerseys up in the players’ stalls, getting their socks ready, and making sure the dressing room is ready for the visiting team too,” says Murray, talking about the preparation

before games. There is one challenge that comes with being an equipment trainer, which Murray says is not wanting to forget anything that the players need. Murray says “making lifelong friends with some good guys” is his favourite part about working with the Cornwall Colts’ hockey team. “Being around hockey for more than 20 years and making friends with the players makes this an easy job,” says Murray.

stra Groskaufmanis has been living in the Ottawa area for sixteen years. She is a graduate of Cornell University and has been working in the human resources field for about twenty-five years. She says she somehow has “also been a zamboni fumes inhaling hockey mom for the last fifteen years. I am a wife and a mom of three teenagers. I love hockey but also love to write, read, cook, and travel. Aside from being a hockey mom, I have also been a baseball mom, golf mom, field hockey mom, track mom, wrestling mom, snowboard and ski mom ... but never a dance mom.” Groskaufmanis had her book Offside by a Mile: Confessions

of a Hockey Mom published this year. The book was six years in the making and it wasn’t until her two boys retired from minor hockey that she had time to finish it. “The book is not about hockey. Hockey is the back story, as is the case with so much of life in Canada. It’s a humour memoir about motherhood and my life as a hockey mom, written almost entirely in tongue and cheek,” says Groskaufmanis. “I started writing about motherhood experiences on my blog The Dust Bunny Chronicles in 2009. Naturally with three kids in hockey, two boys and a girl, many of the stories were hockey-related. Friends and family persuaded me to write a book about my hockey mom experiences.” Groskaufmanis is very honest about what being a hockey mom is Continued on page 8

Ontario Bronze Gloves Competition By Jorge Luis


hamps Eastside Boxing Club attended the Ontario Bronze Gloves in Brampton, Ont. Oct. 16-18, 2015. Representing Champs was Avery Gravelle at 54 Kg, junior boys 13-14 year old division, novice (less than 10 bouts) and Rocket Ronnie Robidoux at the Elite open men’s middleweight division. Avery won his division at 54kg junior boys under 15 by walk-over, but obtained a make-up bout at 57kg against Jonathan Bochner of the famous Sully’s Gym. Both boys were very evenly matched, but Avery landed more jabs and power crosses obtaining a 3 round unanimous decision. Rocket Ronnie Robidoux squared off on Saturday night with former 2012 Olympian Algermaine Burnett, who represented Jamaica in the 2012 London Olympics. In an extremely tightly contested fight, the first round was very evenly fought with both boxers establishing range and distance. The 2nd round Burnett took control and landed some good right crosses, one of them caused the referee to give Ronnie a protection 8 count. Ronnie rallied hard in the 3rd round catching Burnett with jabs and left hooks and was coming on strong against a tiring Algermaine Boxers Avery Gravelle, Ronnie “Rocket” Burnett. The judges saw it 2-1 split decision for Robidoux and coach Jorge Luis. Photo Submitted Algermaine Burnett. No shame, very proud of

Ronnie. On Sunday Oct. 18th Ronnie obtained a bout in the finals by default as Algermaine Burnett forfeited. Ronnie squared off with Jordon McCue of Peterborough Ont. Ronnie came out hard the first round and used his right hand more, which set up his left hook, allowing Ronnie to floor his younger less experienced foe. However, young McCue came back strong and throwing hard leather. Ronnie was quicker and won most exchanges in a very exciting bout to again administer a protection 8 count to his opponent in the 3rd and final round and received a unanimous 3 round decision. Ronnie was declared the men’s open middleweight Ontario Bronze Gloves Champion. Ronnie looks forward to another opportunity for a rematch with Algermaine Burnett. Champs Eastside Boxing Club is very proud of both Avery Gravelle and Ronnie Robidoux. They represented with great fights and with honour and respect for themselves and their opponents. In other news, local world-rated lightweight Tony Luis may be boxing in Ottawa Nov. 27, 2015 with a proposed Canadian Title belt on the line. News will be forth coming. Negotiations are underway.

really like. “Honestly, sometimes it sucks. As I say in one of the first few chapters, ‘eat, sleep, hockey, repeat ... light on the sleep ... heavy on the hockey’. It takes considerable amount of organization and planning to execute a hockey schedule for three kids for a season that can start in August and end in April and stay happy and sane,” says Groskaufmanis.

The worst part, she says, can be that there is little time for anything else during the winter months. Groskaufmanis says that vacations, ski weekends away, family dinners, social gatherings of any kind, are often sacrificed because of a busy hockey schedule. The best part, though, is the friends she has made through hockey that will always have her back. “I’ve been so inspired by what Canadians and hockey moms who don’t even like hockey do for hockey day-in day-out. It’s so very social. There is nothing like a post-game team dinner

in the local roadhouse, until your kid hits you on the back of the head with a spit ball, or seven hockey moms sharing wine and cheese in a Marriott Residence somewhere in the GTA. I am also very proud of the sportsmanship it teaches kids,” says Groskaufmanis. “After all my years as a hockey mom and as a Canadian I still may not know a lot about hockey, but I do know that if you’re raising your kids in hockey, you’re raising them well. They’ll be committed and hard-working team players, willing to lend a hand, and get along.” In terms of what’s next for Groskaufmanis and hockey, her daughter is still in the game and her next writing project is in the works. “I have another book on my mind again where hockey is the back story but the real story is about women. And I will continue to write about motherhood, marriage, and minor hockey on my blog.”

It seemed I usually had a young team to coach wherever I went.” Before heading off to McGill, Carpenter’s years at Cornwall’s St. Lawrence High School were full of athletic achievements. He recalls a huge rivalry with Cornwall Collegiate Vocational School on the football pitch. Carpenter played a big part on the St. Lawrence roster as a fullback. “We’re talking tear down the goal post to celebrate stuff here,” says Carpenter. “It was big time. Mr. Anderson was coaching St. Lawrence and Mr. Metcalfe was coaching CCVS. There are a lot of memories.” A multi-talented athlete, Carpenter was also a standout in lacrosse and

baseball. “I used to play lacrosse in a summer league in Quebec,” he recalls. “I loved playing lacrosse. I would play two games a weekend and tournaments. It was baseball I loved most though. I really wanted to be a baseball player. The Yankees used to have travelling tryout camps. I went to a couple of them. I played for Fort Covington in a senior league. I was the catcher. I loved baseball, but I knew I wasn’t good enough. We would play some teams who played 11.5 months a year and we played 3.5. They could really hit that nickel curve and we would have no chance. We never would see pitching that good.” Of course, Carpenter thrived as a hockey player as well. He skated with the Montreal Junior Canadiens in the Ontario Hockey Association; the Greensboro Generals and Jackson-Raonoke of the Eastern Hockey League, and the Flint

Generals of the International Hockey League. Carpenter says sports were not as regimented in his youth as they can be today. When summer hit, hockey was put away for a few months. “Now, if you’re going to be a hockey player, that’s what you have to do if you want to make it. You have to work in the summer at it. You better be ready when training camp comes. When I was young there was no ice in the summer time. Training camp was 28 days and meant for you to get in shape.” Carpenter looks back over all of his achievements throughout his childhood, adolescence, and pro career. One highlight stands out above the rest ... being named the inaugural winner of the Jacques Richard Trophy in 1961. The trophy was named after the talented young Cornwall athlete who died

tragically in a boating accident in 1959 near Sudbury at the age of 18. It is given out annually at the Cornwall Lions Club Sports Award Dinner to Cornwall’s Top Sports Personality. It was originally given out to Cornwall’s Top Athlete of the Year. Richard was Carpenter’s teammate and best friend. They played together with the New York Café Aces when they won the All-Ontario Softball Championship in 1958. “He probably had a chance to play in the International League,” says Carpenter of his pal. “He was a great line-drive hitter. I was the first one to win the trophy named after him and that really hit home.” Editor’s note: A second feature on Doug Carpenter will appear in the next issue of Sports Energy and will focus on his years as a coach with the Cornwall Royals and professional hockey.

This past weekend, in the Kingston Minor Hockey Association AA Atom tournament, Ethan got the final goal in a shootout against the Don Mills Mustangs. His goal propelled the Rapids to win the tournament. After playing five regular season games, Ethan is in a four-way tie for top scorer for the team with six goals and one assist.

Seaway Valley Rapids Minor P e e w e e Hustler of the month goes to forward Tyler Sauve. Tyler’s favourite player is Jonathan Toews from the Chicago Blackhawks. His pre-game go to meal is pasta. Tyler has excellent knowledge of the game and is consistently hard on the puck; he plays both ends of the ice on every shift. He skates hard at every practice and every game. Way to go Tyler!! Keep up the great work!

Novice A Chancey Novosad is a defenseman for the Novice A SVR team. This is his first year playing for the Seaway Valley Rapids’ Association; he completed his Initiation years and played Novice B last year with the CharLan Association. As a defensive player, Chancey is doing a great job of using the boards to help clear the puck from the zone, as well as manning the player in front of the net who is waiting to snipe a shot on his goalie. Chancey’s favourite NHL team is the Montreal Canadiens, and his favourite player is Dale Weise. When he grows up, Chancey wants to be an NHL hockey player, or be the next Don Cherry. Besides playing hockey, some of Chancey’s favourite things to do are: playing soccer and football, going skiing, and building Lego.

Ethan Montroy

Goalie Tandem of Danik Martin and Matthew Villeneuve. Minor Bantam AA

With Danik being a second year goalie with Seaway, he leads the tandem with the experience…always solid and always ready to give out a solid performance. Matthew the newcomer, as been very steady into the learning curve of the AA league, facing bigger and stronger players with harder shots…both have risen to the challenge and given our team a chance to win every night. Both have a very respectful GAA of 2.33 and 2.67 per game…with 6 games played allowing only 15 goals against. Keep it up boys…

Zack Auger

Thomas Ouderkirk

Major Bantam AA

Zach Auger is our blue line beauty. He controls the puck and the play. He can wheel up and down the ice and is a threat when he crosses the blue line. He is a dedicated athlete and enjoys all sports; mainly hockey, football, and basketball. He is a quiet and considerate person on and off the ice. He is well liked and respected by his teammates and coaches.

Midget AA Thomas has returned to the Seaway Midget program this season and we, the coaching staff, are glad to have him. Thomas is a third year midget who brings a great deal of talent, as well as composure, to the team. He is an outstanding role model for the younger players in regards to work ethic as well as character. He brings a clever sense of humour to the dressing room as well as a solid example to the team when it comes to game time. Having Thomas’s years of experience, hockey smarts, and pure skill are proving to be invaluable in clutch situations during games. This is the second season I have had the pleasure of coaching Thomas. The first was at Major Bantam AA and this season has been, as it was then, a solid effort every practice and every game. To Thomas’s credit he is also an “A” student at St. Josephs and has played for the school hockey team; the school hockey team that has had many years of success in no small part to his contributions. In short Thomas is an integral part of our Midget AA team and I am very glad he came out this final year of his minor hockey career. Thanks Thomas!

he TD Waterhouse sponsored Opening Bonspiel took centre stage at the Cornwall Curling Centre, October 13 to 17. On the ice, 24 teams competed for the opportunity to play in a final on Saturday afternoon. Forty games were played during the week leading up to the finals. As is the case in all bonspiels, not everyone can win though it was pretty obvious everyone did have a good time. Off the ice, the Opening Bonspiel featured lots of food each night and music provided by Leisure Sound on Friday night. An army of volunteers did another outstanding job of making this a should-not-miss event in our club’s calendar. The Bonspiel ended Saturday night with dinner and prizes for the winners and another late night for the volunteers who celebrated a successful week. The A Division winner, undefeated in its five games was the Frank Spagnolo team

of Lead Bob Lockhart, Second Jane McDonald. and Vice Janice Sobering. The A final was an entertaining well-played game with Joanne McIntosh’s team finishing runner-up. The A Consolation game was won by Team Terry Litchy over Team Bob Ellison. The B Division winner was Team Baker, with only one loss on their record. Mitch Baker’s team of Lead Joanne Dexter, Second Rob Mahon, and Vice Norm Quenville defeated Team Mike Villeneuve in the B final.

JOCKFEST 2015 By Staff Writer


he annual meeting of some of Cornwall and areas best athletes from various sports of the 1950’s and 60’s took place on October 14th at the Navy Club. This event, now referred to as Jockfest, was started six years ago and had previously been organized by Andy Petepiece who, having other commitments this year asked Mike Heenan if he would assume those responsibilities. Mike, assisted by Brian Mulligan, Yvon Lemaire, and a few others as the organizing committee, had 75 former athletes from football, fastball, hockey, lacrosse, basketball and track and field in attendance. There were several players from the Ed Lumley coached Chargers/Mustang football team present. The team was known as the Chargers in 1966, then the Mustangs in 67 and 68 played three years in the Inter- Provincial Football League,and were a Jr. farm team of the Ottawa Rough Riders. Of those

Another well represented team was the New York

Café Aces fastball team, who as 17 yr olds, won the Ontario Jr. championship in 1958. Eight members of that group were in attendance at this years Jockfest. Mike Heenan stated that “the 50’s and

60’s were times when dollars were not plentiful, sports were an inexpensive form of social entertainment, and large crowds came out to support the local teams”

CUCBA League By Jordan Todd


rad Derochie has been involved in youth basketball ever since his children played rep ball in Cornwall, and he has been president of the Cornwall and United Counties Basketball Association for going on 12 years now. The league has gone through some ups and downs during its over 40 year existence, but Derochie says the association is currently strong as ever. “We went through some lean years,” says Derochie, “but the program right now is just blossoming. We’re just so happy with the way things are going right now.” Derochie credits the growth of the league partially to them changing the schedule for younger kids to make it more accessible and to the low cost of playing basketball compared to some other sports.

1380 2nd St East, Cornwall

The league runs yearly from just after Thanksgiving through the winter. The all-ages league has kids from as young as three years old up to high school seniors. Derochie is particularly proud of the growth he’s seen in their Mites Program, the youngest age bracket. “The other night we had almost 60 children between the ages of three and six,” he says. “It was just amazing to watch.” The program runs almost exclusively on qualified volunteers, from coaches to referees. The 68-year-old Derochie says that after so many years, it’s the kids that keep him coming back and wanting to be involved in the program. “For example, my wife and I went to this Monday night’s Mites Program,” says Derochie. “We just sat there and looked, just beaming to see kids playing basketball, and just so happy to be learning how to dribble a ball. It just gives you that feeling.

I Helped Justin Trudeau to Victory

making sports news across the Justin Trudeau. Justin remained country. calm, cool, and collected. I was The big night finally arrived and quite impressed, but Brazzeau the I was there with another amateur favourite, looked much stronger boxer who was also boxing on the albeit shorter but stockier.

By Jorge Luis


es, I helped Justin Trudeau to victory….in the ring that is. It was March 2012 at the Marriott Conference Centre in Ottawa, Ont. An amateur boxing card was organized to raise funds and awareness for cancer. Justin Trudeau offered and agreed to fight any Conservative inside the ring within the rules of boxing. The search was on and the Conservatives found, in the senate, a Conservative senator the same age and weight as MP Justin Trudeau. There could be no more than 10 years difference in age and no more than 10 pounds difference in weight. Patrick Brazzeau fit the bill. Growing up on a native reserve in Northern Quebec, Patrick had boxed briefly as a youngster and later in his teens and in his early twenties achieved the rank of Black Belt in Karate. On paper it looked like the makings of a mismatch, but people were unaware that for years Justin Trudeau had trained 3 times a week at a boxing club in Montreal to keep fit. A fox that Trudeau. So for 3 months both Brazzeau and Trudeau trained in Ottawa and Montreal getting ready for the” big day”. The event was built up by Canadian media, with all the pomp and glitz of a major big fight. The weigh-in took place the night before the event and was televised by Canada-wide media,

card. Justin Trudeau and Patrick Brazzeau both had their own separate dressing rooms, which is unheard of in amateur boxing. At the time my son Tony Luis had boxed on some promotions in Montreal for Ali Nestor Promotions. Ali Nestor owns Ness Martial Arts in Montreal and is a former professional boxer/ professional MMA competitor. Ali was Justin Trudeau’s trainer at the time. After bumping into Ali, Ali asked me if I had other boxers on the show and if I would help him corner Justin Trudeau. I instantly replied an emphatic “yes”. Ali took me to the dressing room to meet Justin. Justin was very cordial and extremely polite. I thought he was quite relaxed and handled the prefight nerves and pressure well. So much so, in fact, for a fellow with no actual previous fight experience that I tool Ali Nester aside and a couple of officials and asked if the fight was on the level. I thought maybe there was a pre-arrangement to go easy and put on a good show….but no. I was assured by Ali Nestor, it was real and both competitors were going to shoot the works and may the best man win. Ali Nestor, as a matter of fact, was quite hyper and nervous. Ali warmed up Justin well and rehearsed the fight plan, reminding Justin of key points. It was then time to walk to the ring. Both men were brought in to music and the place was jam packed with a pro-Conservative crowd. It had all the atmosphere and pomp of a world title fight. I carried the bucket and towel, Justin Trudeau was booed heartily by the partisan crowd. Patrick Brazzeau looked much more nervous than

The first bell rang and Brazzeau bolted from the corner and blitzed Trudeau with both fists pumping. Justin blocked some, moved around, and took his fair share of shots. At one point I leaned over to Ali Nestor and told him (Ali was quite frantic in the corner) “we may

have to throw the towel and stop the fight if the tide doesn’t turn”. Then with about 30 seconds left in the round Patrick slowed down and stopped punching. Justin stayed composed and focused and with 10 seconds remaining landed a couple jabs and a cross which elicited no response from Brazzeau. The bell rang and Justin came back to the corner, Ali Nestor was hyper and hurling instructions at Justin. Continued on page 17

egular physical activity is a key component of developing long lasting health and wellness. It is generally accepted that it reduced the risk of premature mortality, coronary heart disease, hypertension, colon cancer, obesity, and diabetes mellitus in particular. Unfortunately, participation in sports also entails a risk of injury for all athletes, from the elite to the recreational level. Sports-related injuries can be as high as 10-19% of all injuries seen in our emergency departments today, the most common being knee and ankle injuries. Serious injuries, such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, are becoming an increasing concern with the highest incidence seen in female adolescents playing pivoting sports (3-5x more susceptible to a serious knee injury than males).

Proper warm-up programs

Proper warm-up and training programs are of paramount importance when we examine effective strategies for reducing the likelihood of ankle and knee injuries. A multifaceted

Figure 1. Paired mat push-pull exercise for balance training If a proper, structured, and effective program is put in place, the incidence of knee and ankle injuries can be reduced by at least 50% with a possibility of greater reduction in serious knee and ankle injuries. Our long-term goals should not only include injury prevention in the shortterm, but a continued enjoyment of sport and physical activity throughout a lifetime. If this is realized, we are able to create impactful change on the incidences of lifestyle related illness such as heart disease and obesity across an entire culture.

Multisport Club Athlete Profile: Mark Williams: Local Multisport Athlete says Multisport is a Great Way to Deal with Stress

For those who haven’t given multi-sport a try, Williams encourages you to get out and give it a shot. “The best advice I could give to anyone, that is interested in starting running, is you don’t need to break the bank to get into the sport. Find a decent pair of shoes at your local Winners and hit the road,” says Williams. “Set achievable goals for yourself and build up slowly, listen to your body and don’t over do it. Most of all, only compete against yourself. There will always be someone faster!”

By Molly Kettrrick LoRusso


ark Williams has been involved in athletics for much of his life. He first started running in high school at Glengarry, with their Track and Field and Cross Country clubs. Later, his neighbours got him involved with cycling, as two of them are amateur triathletes. He first started running in the Heather Saaltink Memorial run in 2011. Williams says he doesn’t have anyone in particular that helps him get moving. He says he does it for his own personal health. “I suffered from ADHD as a child and realized running helped deal with the extra energy and calm me down so I could concentrate and focus in class,” says Williams. “Today I find it a great way to deal with stress and combat mental health issues that run in my family.”

Williams has completed the Ottawa Half Marathon; completing it in a little under an hour and a half. Williams does have ambitions of completing more marathons in the future. “I have ambitions of training, qualifying, and competing in the Boston Marathon, but I’m a father of three, in a single income family. My wife is a stay-at-home Mom,” says Williams. “Finding time to train and the funding to compete isn’t always there. At the moment this is what holds me back and will perhaps have to wait

until the kids have grown up and moved out.” Williams also swims with the Cornwall Sea Lions’ Masters and has been with the club for three years. When he isn’t working out in the summer, Williams still makes sure to stay active, and in the winter, he is involved in crosscountry skiing and snowshoe races. Williams is a big fan of the

Cornwall Multi-Sport Club. “CMC is a great club because it’s affordable and most of all competitive. This provides challenges and goals to achieve and also measure yourself against,” says Williams. “I enjoy the friendly people to train with; we share similar interests and a common goal. CMC puts on a good number of events over the summer, which require hard training to stay competitive.”

Seaway Valley Rapids Major Atom AA Team Aces Kingston Tournament By SJohanne Sullivan


he Seaway Valley Rapids Major Atom AA team travelled to Kingston, over the weekend, to participate in the Kingston Canadians’ AA tournament. During the roundrobin phase of the tournament, the Rapids faced the hometown team first.

The boys got off to a quick start when James Sullivan scored on a pass from Braxton D’alessio and Ben Pilon. It was quickly followed up by Assistant Captain Marco McCarthy on a pass from Assistant Captain Jonah Ashby and Brennan Lashomb. Ethan Montroy got a hat trick during the game. Assists also went to Thomas Shoniker, Josh Esford, and Landen Sweet. The Rapids came out on top with an 8-0 win, with Matt Sauvé earning the shutout. For the second game, the Rapids faced the Don Mills Mustangs who had a perfect record going into it. The Rapids drew first blood when Montroy connected on a pass from Ashby. The Mustangs tied it up early in the second and then went ahead. After some great passing, Pilon put it in the net to tie it. It was passed from Ashby to Jett Jock to Captain Carson Martin until Pilon put it away. The Mustangs fought back and again went up by one. Going into the third period, the Mustangs were leading 3-2. In the middle of the last period, D’alessio passed it to Sullivan who put it in the net to tie it up. Austin

Lebano had some great goaltending, that game, to keep it tied 3-3. On Saturday, the Rapids faced the Belleville Bulls. It was another strong performance with the Rapids coming out on top 7-0. Lebano earned another shutout for the season while Montroy (x2), D’alessio, Sullivan, McCarthy, and Antoine Lafrance each scored. Ashby, Pilon (x2), D’alessio, Sullivan, Jock, Sweet, and McCarthy each earned assists. To finish out the round-robin the Rapids faced a league rival, the Upper Ottawa Valley Aces. McCarthy scored first for Rapids, followed by D’alessio and Montroy while Lashomb, Sullivan, and Esford each earned assists. Assistant Captain Ashby had a goal called back when the Aces pulled their goalie during a power play, but Jock was offside when the puck sailed into the empty net. The score was 3-1 at the end of the first. During the second, Montroy scored unassisted, but the Aces pulled within one to make it 4-3. During the third period, Jock scored unassisted, but the Aces also scored to stay within one. Montroy came through in the clutch on a pass from Martin to make the final score 6-4. After the round-robin of play, the Rapids finished second overall and had to face the Innisfil Winterhawks for the semi-final. The Rapids got on the board first when Martin deflected in from defenseman Shoniker. The score was tied going into the second period. Lashomb scored unassisted during the second and the Rapids never looked back. During the third period, Montroy, Jock, and D’alessio each

scored unassisted for a final score of 5-2. For the finals, the Rapids had to face the Don Mills Mustangs again. The Rapids were hoping to hand the Mustangs their first loss of the season. During the first period, the Mustangs were able to score twice, when they capitalized on some mistakes the Rapids made, while the Rapids only scored once when Lafrance connected on a pass from McCarthy. During the second period, the Mustangs again scored to lead the Rapids 3-1. It wasn’t looking good for the Rapids, but in the final minutes of play they pulled it together when Montroy put it in the net after Martin and Jock passed it to him. Being within one, the Rapids were pressing hard especially after Sullivan crashed the net. After a scrum in front of the net, McCarthy put it in on a rebound from Pilon and Martin. The game was finally tied and went into overtime. It remained tied after the OT; it went to a 3-person shootout. Going first for the Rapids was Lafrance, but their goalie stuffed him. The Mustangs player beat Sauvé to create some high drama. Next, Martin skated for Rapids and beat the Mustang goalie while Sauvé made the save. With the Rapids last skater, Montroy needed to score to get the go-ahead. He didn’t disappoint. He deked the goalie to get the go-ahead goal while Sauvé made an outstanding save against the Mustangs’ big defenseman. Mission accomplished for the Rapids—they won the tournament and handed the Mustangs their first loss of the season.

Martial Art Influences • Hanshi John Therien By Jim Riddell, Seaway Karate Club


ohn Therien, often referred to as ‘The Godfather of Martial Arts in Canada’ is one of the best known and most highly respected martial artists in the world. Born and raised in Ottawa, he began his martial arts’ career in 1964, training in Jiujitsu with Professor Georges Sylvain. In 1968, while continuing to train with Mr. Sylvain, the first Therien Jiu-jitsu dojo opened in Casselman in a tiny building adjacent to the railway tracks. “It had no running water, only two light bulbs, and every time a train came through we would have to stop the fight

because the lights would go out” said Therien. Needing larger accommodations, TJJ moved to Vanier in 1969, a tough, low-income area in Ottawa’s east end. Therien Jiu-jitsu thrived in Vanier, spending the next 41 years there, before moving to its present location in Ottawa South. In 1971 Georges Sylvain, now teaching full time at Algonquin College closed his dojo, authorizing John Therien, now a 3rd Dan, to carry on with the Can-ryu style of Jiu-jitsu, which Sylvain had founded. Therien was also developing several world class professional kickboxers, including Jean-Yves Theriault, who, in 1980, won the world title and defended it 23 times over the next fourteen years. Theriault stated, “I started with John Therien in 1972, first as a jiu-jitsu student, then a tournament fighter, and on to kickboxing. His guidance helped me become very successful in the sport, - without John Therien I would not have had the career that I did. In 1994 the Professional Kickboxing Association (PKA) honoured John Therien with its Man of the Decade award for his development of kickboxing in Canada. Just a few weeks ago, during a televised kickboxing

event at the Montreal Casino, PKA president Joe Corley said “Look at the lineage here, the promoter, TV commentator and fight analyst, the referee, all have descended from John Therien.” Today there are more than one hundred dojos in Canada whose chief instructor has a direct link to Therien Jiu-jitsu and Kickboxing. There are five Therien JJ &Kickboxing schools locally, which are independently owned, and twenty “satellite schools” stretching from Buffalo, NY to Barcelona, Spain. As a very indemand master seminar instructor, John Therien is constantly travelling across Canada, the USA, and Europe. He is also President of the World Kobudo Federation which he co-founded in 1992, building it into one of if not the largest, Martial Arts organizations in the world. There are several dojos in the Seaway Valley which are affiliated with World Kobudo including our own Seaway Karate, which has been a proud member since 1993. With his honesty, integrity, respect for others, and being a team player, John Therien exemplifies what the martial arts are all about. Hanshi John Therien, “The Godfather of martial arts in Canada” has been very influential in what is being taught in our valley dojos today.

Ty Celone Ends his Golf Season with Another Success By Molly Kett


y Celone ends his golf season by being selected to represent the Golf Association of Ontario’s “Team Ontario.” Team Ontario is a high performance training program that is offered to the top selected junior golfers in Ontario.

Celone was granted this honour due to his performance this past summer and after winning his national title at the Mizuno. Being selected for Team Ontario means Celone will train all winter, including twice in Florida, for two separate training camps, and in Myrtle Beach during March Break. He will also have a Can-Am match in South Carolina in March as well. The Team Ontario Cup will be held in Niagara, April of 2016. Ty is extremely happy with this season’s results and is already making plans for his next. “I hope next season brings more results and over the winter and throughout the summer my coaches and I can

find things that I need to improve on,” says Celone. “In the end I hope next season brings forward more learning experiences that I can better my game from.”

His parents are both proud of and excited by his accomplishments this season. “This is what Ty was working for all summer long. When he received that phone call that he made this team a few weeks ago, Ty knew his hard work this summer paid off,” says Ty’s mother, Angela Celone. “We think Ty had a very solid season this year. He finished well in key events and winning Mizuno National Tournament was a high point for him. He also accomplished his goal of making Team Ontario. We are very proud. With all these accomplishments on his resume, this year brings more invitations for next year and luckily we have had the support of his grandparents, aunts, and a great help from Belanger Laminates. They all believe Ty will go far with his skills and passion for golf.”

What is your Favorite Sports Tim McCuaig

Williamstown’s Tim McCuaig is enjoying giving back, now that he’s traded his role as player to coach. The former Char-Lan Rebels Jr. B goaltending star and soccer “hero”, a term he often labels to some of his friends in sports, is currently helping coach his son and the Char-Lan Minor Hockey Novice B Rebels and his daughter and the IP group in Char-Lan. McCuaig, 35, still skates with the men’s hockey team Williamstown Wings, but he points to his coaching duties with his kids’ teams as his favourite passion in athletics these days. “I love watching kid’s sports. I enjoy it more than playing now.” Looking back at his own years in sports, McCuaig recalls his favourite sports memory when, as an over-ager, he was the goaltender that took the Rebels all the way to Game 7 of the Eastern Ontario Junior B Final. Unfortunately, McCuaig’s role in that game 7 finished prematurely as he tore his ACL midway through the first period. “I am unable to play in nets anymore. I played five years with the Rebels with the highlight going to game 7. It was also one of the hardest times.” On the soccer field, McCuaig counts winning Glengarry Soccer League titles with Pine Grove and Char-Lan as his favourite moments. Over the years he has also been involved in golf and tennis.

Novice B Braves Victorious in Home Tournament By Todd Anderson


he NGS Novice B Braves captured the A championship at their home tournament in Finch, on Oct. 24, and looked good doing it. Sporting new jerseys the North-Glen-Stor Braves have purchased this season, the young novice team becomes the association’s first championship team with the new duds. NGS opened the tournament at North Stormont Arena with a 6-1 victory over the Casselman Vikings. Despite the earlymorning start, the Braves’ shooters were ready for action as they took a 4-0 lead after the first period with goals from Blake Nuttall (2), Caleb Grady, and Vinny Anderson. Nuttall capped off a fabulous game scoring another goal in each of the second and third periods. Carter Rolland had three assists in the victory with Anderson, Grady, and Josh MacMillan handing out one each. Dryden Coleman was victorious in goal. Casselman spoiled Coleman’s shutout bid, with just 1:20 remaining, when Cedryk Baril found the back of the net.

Sports Panel

Sports Energy would like to congratulate Jacob Ruest , who was recently drafted in the NLL by the Calgary Roughnecks. What do you feel it takes for an athlete to separate themselves from the pack and go on to higher achievement, and how should parents play a role in their development? Greater Cornwall & Areas Community Sports Newspaper Have Fun

Sports Energy

Jim Riddell - Seaway Karate Club - Congratulations Jacob Ruest, on being drafted by the Calgary Roughnecks. To move up, an athlete will need to have the proper athletic ability as well as the required size and strength. He or she should also be motivated, have a strong work ethic, and the mental toughness to never give up no matter what. An athlete should also be coachable and willingly do whatever is asked of him or her. It also never hurts to be at the right place at the right time and have what someone is looking for. As an athlete moves up the parental role will become less hands on, but one that should continue to remain very support Gilles Gaudet - Sports Enthusiast - First I would like to congratulate Jacob Ruest on his latest achievement. How many pro athletes were told they would never make it, but did? To become an “elete” athlete, first you have to love and have a passion for the sport you chose. Sacrifice and healthy living habits come next. Discipline is also required, not just in your sport, but juggling the rest of your life, school work etc. Your skill set and development over the years will be influenced by the above. My advice to parents is to be realistic, support your child in a positive way. Don’t try to rush the “System”, let your child enjoy his or her involvement in youth sports.

Jake Lapierre - Conditioning Coach - Sports Energy Panel I feel parents play a big role in the development of a young athlete. Along with all the practices, training & fitness conditioning young athletes require to improve their talents, support from parents is crucial in the development of a young athlete’s mindset. That support doesn’t just involve getting a child to the rink, field or gym; it requires parents to understand the complexities and needs of the child and the importance of creating a balance of doing the right things, at the right time, in the right way in order to help the child develop the right attitude and understanding - to enable him or her to be able to choose a path in sports that fits them. By supporting and enabling a young athlete to develop the right mindset, young gifted athletes will have the attitude and understanding to use their skills and understand what it takes to reach their goals.

The Rangers came ready to retain their title and left the arena with the victory. The Hydro One score of the game was 5-1 in favour of the visitors.

Bobby retired from being a bat boy last year but Bobby is legally deaf and communicates with minimal words, hand gestures, and reading lips. I continues to volunteer with the Cornwall Colts at can still recall the time he went to retrieve a home every home game.

The ball had hit And that’s Murphy’s Law. the side of a back porch and the owner of the house was yelling and his little dog (maybe called Toto) was barking. Bobby nonchalantly walked back to get the ball, grabbed it from the owner, and waved at the dog as he walked away. Needless to say, we could still hear the owner yelling and dog barking as Bobby handed the ball back to the umpire.

For over a decade, I had the privilege of playing How dedicated is he?
