Senior Girls Hockey:

The girls traveled to Barrington on Saturday night where they played a hard fought game against Barrons. Where they tied 1-1.  A strong effort was shown by all who were able to attend.

Sr Girls Basketball

The girls took on CK at home on Friday in exhibition play. CK came to play and took an early lead heading into half time. Down by 16 at half the Titans fought back to tie the game up in the last 3 minutes, but couldn’t find the go ahead hoop. Eventually CK ran out 52-47 winners handing the girls their first loss of the season. This Friday and Saturday the girls host their home tournament. Check the schedule and come out and support your Titans.

Sr. Boys Hockey

This past Friday evening the Sr. boys hockey team hosted the West Kings Wolverines in Canning for a Pink in the Rink fundraiser.  Although the Titans came up short on the scoreboard, the night was a huge success because of the wonderful support from the NKEC students, staff and community.  In total the night raised $600.00 dollars which will be split evenly between the Children’s Wish Foundation and the Canadian Cancer Society. The boys truly enjoyed the evening and are very thankful for the support they received from the NKEC students.
