Rugby Season Home Opener 04.25.17
Senior Boys Rugby: Kicking off the 2017 Sr. Boys Rugby campaign saw the RND Panthers face off against a very large Frontenac team.

Heading to half with in a scoreless match put the pressure on to post some points.
Junior Boys Rugby: In what most would consider to be a "rebuilding year" the RND Jr. boys Panthers showcased today that the young club is officially "rebuilt" and ready to defend its three KASSAA championships. With only four players from last year's Provincial winning squad, the boys came out flying today over the Falcons as they controlled the flow of play from start to finish. Heads up rugby play making was on display, along with hard and efficient rucking, quick ball movement and selfless team play. Overall, it was a great start to the Jr campaign, and they showcased today that they are hungry to compete in another year of Kingston Rugby. RND High Scorers: Tries scored by:
Johnny Murphy, Mitchell Roantree, Nathan Pinder (2), Matt Donovan, and Noah Slack.
Converts: Nathan Pinder (4)
Regi didn't disappoint as the managed to win ball, put together a few phases of play, before Malik Downer made some nifty moves to tap the ball down for the first try of the season. After making our convert though, the Falcons came back hard and quickly scored a try of their own. Up 7-5, Regi managed to hold on as Lock Dan Niles bought some insurance crossing the try line off of a driving maul from the line out.
Today, the Sr. Panthers showed grit and resiliency as they competed with a very physical opponent and held on for the first win of the season. Hats off to the boys. Rest up, as the next game is this Friday against KCVI.

Spring Season - Just Around the Corner 04.06.17
With the KASSAA Spring Sports Season upcoming there are a couple of reminders to help make the very condensed season go smoothly.
Please DO NOT PRINT KASSAA Game Schedules. The on-line version of the schedule is the only "official" version. If changes are made, these revisions would make printed copies inaccurate. Alterations to the schedule will only be made to the on-line version.
Student-athletes who are absent from classes due to competitions should be sure to communicate directly with all their teachers in advance of their absence. Success in classroom is the priority, not participation in sport. If conflicts exist between classroom experiences and evaluations and scheduled competitions, the expectation is that students will make arrangements to ensure their academic commitments are met.
Concussion Awareness Evening 03.26.17
A concussion awareness information meeting will be held Wednesday April 05 at KCVI. This evening will offer practical, comprehensive information on sports based concussions for athletes, parents, and coaches. The first 100 KASSA athletes to arrive will receive funds for the non-reimbursable portion of a baseline concussion test. This event is free however a food bank donation would be appreciated. This is a great opportunity so encourage your parents and sports team to attend.
Spring Sports - Start Up Information 03.20.17
The September start-up sees a massive amount of information being passed
between players, coaches, parents and the RND Athletic Department.
In an attempt to help simplify some of the upcoming organizational issues
the RND Scoreboard has outlined a series of topics that should help
ensure a smooth transition into the new school year and athletic schedules.
RND Scoreboard / www.rnd-panthers.com
This web site is the central source for all information related to the
RND Athletic Department. All the necessary forms, schedules and policies
are posted on the site. In addition, each team has it's own web site
with specific team information, rosters, pictures, results, special
scheduling, coaching instructions, tournament and travel information
etc... RND coaches will send most of their information to the web site
for posting rather than handing out paper to individual student-athletes.
This allows the RND Community access to all the information regarding
Panther teams using any computer, mobile phone or tablet.
The RND Scoreboard web site is updated numerous times each day and should
be bookmarked by all Panther players, parents and fans. Questions can
be directed at anytime to Mr. Ed Kenney - RND Athletic Director at RND_Athletics@hotmail.com
