Since the beginning of Gleneagle, Chris Turpin, social studies teacher, has coached the boys’ rugby team. This year, he will take a break on the spectators’ bench.
Nick Bolton, psychology teacher, has been welcomed into the position as the new coach for both of Gleneagle’s boys’ rugby teams.
The rugby season has seen a significant delay in its start due to the unexpected snowfall over the past two months. Games have been rescheduled to begin every Thursday following Spring Break.
“I want to see kids coming out and enjoying the sport,” said Bolton. “More players are always better for us.”
Practices are Mondays to Wednesdays for juniors, and Mondays to Thursdays for seniors, both running from 3:40 to 5:00.
The team will be competing in the triple A tier two league, which means they will not qualify for provincials.
