Mr. Speaker, over the past week, two Cape Breton high school teams hosted long-standing sporting events.
The Breton Education Centre in New Waterford hosted the 31st annual Coal Bowl Classic basketball tournament that attracts participants from high schools right across the country. I would like to congratulate Three Oaks Senior High School Axemen from Summerside, P.E.I. for their win over the Corner Brook Titans for the title championship.
Also, Riverview High School in Coxheath hosted the 35th annual Red Cup Showcase hockey tournament featuring high school teams from all over Nova Scotia. The host team, Riverview Redmen from my riding, were the tournament champions for the second year in a row. They had a 2-1 overtime victory over Truro's Cobequid Education Centre Cougars.
Both successful events happened with hard work and dedication from staff, students, parents and volunteers.
I rise today to recognize both the Breton Education Centre and Riverview High School on jobs well done.
