Mercuri Rises to the Top: Gold Medal Performance
Hailey Mercuri capped her high school rowing career Sunday with her second straight gold medal in the single at the Canadian Secondary Schools Rowing Association championships.
After winning the midweight Schoolboy single last year, the Grade 12 student at Grimsby and District Secondary School added the senior single against a tough field. That gives her a career total of three CSSRA gold when adding the gold she mined in the double in 2017.
“It was pretty cool and I forgot this was my last (high school) race ever,” the 18-year-old said. “I am going to miss it and it is kind of sad, but it is a good way to end.” Click Here for Full Article.
Hop on the "Dane Train" for the University of Albany Soccer Program
A fantastic picture of proud father Lameck Zingano watching our very own Sahara Zingano sign her athletic and academic scholarship in front of coach Richard Asante. When asked about the signing Sahara said, "These two have been on this ride with me since I was 10 years old. Without the support of these two people I wouldn't be where I am today. They have taught me everything I know on and off the field. I will be joining the "Dane Train" to make Grimsby proud. I will be living in the US for 4 years starting with the preseason in July 2019, but in the long term my goal is to play professional soccer in Europe and eventually bring that experience back to the Grimsby community. There are so many girls who just need a nudge on the shoulder to get themselves going and can do something great out there in the world." Sahara is an amazing student and an incredible athlete, we know you are going to make yourself and Grimsby proud in the years ahead.
Grimsby Secondary School is super proud of our Grade 12 student Hailey Mercuri. She has recently signed a full athletic scholarship in Rowing at the University of Oklahoma where she will major in neuroscience. Hailey has an amazing high honours academic record and is able to balance her studies with her hectic rowing schedule.
She rowed for the Canadian National Team at the CanAmMex 2018 and won gold in the women’s doubles and also won gold for her school in the women’s senior 630kilogram event at the 2018 Canadian Secondary Schools Rowing Association Regatta (Schoolboy). She also won CSSRA gold in the junior girls double when she was in Grade 9 and two years ago was a member of a Ridley Graduate Boat Club junior girls double that captured gold at the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta.
Now, Hailey is shooting for a spot on Canada’s junior national team is also hoping to qualify for the world championships in Tokyo later this year. Congratulations and good luck Hailey!

Reaching New Heights Internationally
It’s been a heck of a year for Grimsby’s own Kieran Lupish. Kieran, a 15 year old grade ten student, was recently named to Team Canada and will travel on November 10 to travel to St. Petersburg, Russia to compete in the World Age Group Championships.
He placed fourth in the world last year in the 13-14 year old category for double mini trampoline and is excited to return to Worlds. This year, Kieran also travelled to Bolivia to represent Team Canada at the Junior Pan Am Games where he won a silver medal in double mini. In July, Kieran captured two bronze medals at the Canadian Championships in both individual trampoline and double mini trampoline.
Kieran is excited to add to his international experience this month. “It’s always an honour to wear the maple leaf,” Kieran said. The Eagles wish him well in Russia!
