The Collingwood Collegiate Institute Nordic ski team is one of Ontario’s best.

The Fighting Owls brought home six championships from the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations championships held in Sudbury on Feb. 22 and 23.

Coach Bill Hewitt said the team won the distance and relay championships for both the senior and junior girls teams as well as a relay title for the senior boys. Because of the success of the teams, the school won the overall team combined championships.

Tess Wortley was the OFSAA individual champion and Erik Ohrling finished second.

For the senior girls team, this marks the seventh provincial championship in the last number of years.

“They have put seven banners up in the gym at CCI, they’re a pretty epic team at this point,” Hewitt said.

He said reason for the success of the team is a combination of a great facility at Highlands Nordic and team chemistry.

“A lot of these kids like hanging around each other,” he said. “They are a really great group of kids. They love to go skiing together. They always try to do their best and try and excel,” he said. The senior boys really wanted to support the senior girls and do well and go for that team combined.”
