Athletic therapist Ray D’Almeida will be offering mobility training every Monday evening from 7 – 7:45 pm in Gym A at the Peterborough Sport & Wellness Centre. Strength and conditioning coach Ryan White will be leading training sessions every Monday evening from 8 – 9 pm in the Leisure pool at the Peterborough Sport & Wellness Centre. These training sessions are available for all current Fleming varsity athletes.
Fleming Knights started the season in epic fashion. While many of our veteran athletes were under the weather, the rookies and athletes responded with actions rather than just words.
On the women’s side Madison Sloan, having just returned from the World Triathalon Championships in Mexico just over a week ago, led our women’s field placing 13th overall followed closely by Amy Corcoran placing 16th, Alexandra Kaczmarek and Amber Nykyforak. Good enough for our shortened women’s team to place 5th.
On the men’s side, in exciting fashion, the race came down to a photo finish as Riley Olesky placed a close 2nd, followed by Andy Hein, Jake Buchan, Anthony Slade, Joseph Tuskin, and Samuel LaChance. While our men’s team was seriously debilitated with flu and sickness we found a way to still place 5th overall with their eyes set on winning the first OCAA title in over 12 years.
While unfortunate events kept our teams scrambling one thing is for sure, when it comes down to it everyone in our team has the ability to step up.
Great job knights, we look forward to the challenge at our next meet in Seneca.
Defending champion Fleming improved its OCAA winning streak to a dozen matches (post-season included) in a 46-10 win over Algonquin on Oct. 1, sweeping the season series between the two teams. Second-year player Jacinta AddaiSarfo (Bradford) scored two tries in the victory. Addai-Sarfo is now averaging a try per match. Fleming has not lost an OCAA match since Nov. 1, 2014.
Good Luck to Madison Sloan Fleming Student and Varsity Cross Country Runner. Madison qualified last summer for the World Triathlon Championships in Mexico she is competing Saturday/Sunday Sept 17/18th and returning to Fleming to train with the Fleming Knights Varsity Cross Country Team
The Fleming Knights Men’s Basketball team have had a very positive summer offering programs and giving back to the community . The Knights offered a high school program from July through to August, every Thursday, which focused on elite training, skill development and team concepts. “We have already received a lot of positive feedback from parents and participants about the success and benefits of the program, so it’s definitely something we are going to continue to do,” Coach Wilson said. The Fleming men’s players coached various drills and refereed the games, which gave them an opportunity to build relationships within the basketball community in Peterborough. “It was a terrific opportunity for my guys to develop their leadership skills and also mentor the younger generations of basketball players we have in our city. Overall I’m pleased with the energy and effort they brought each week,” Coach Wilson added. They concluded the last Thursday session with awards and a congratulatory speech from the Basketball staff.
The Knights will continue to run various programs for kids throughout the fall and winter.
Welcome to the Knights!
The Fleming Men’s Basketball program has had a very productive summer, signing 3 impact players for the 2016-2017 season. They have added a 6’9 forward, Peterborough native Matt Nelson, who spent his first 3 seasons with the University of Ottawa. “Matt’s size and mobility will help us on both ends of the floor, and his experience coming from a great program will also add value to the team,” Coach Wilson said. The 3rd year coach will also bring aboard Jaquan Levene, a 6’5 point guard from Toronto. Jaquan spent last season across the border as a redshirt for South Western College in Iowa. “Jaquan’s size and playmaking ability creates a lot of problems for opposing defenses. He has such a great feel for the game, being left handed will create some advantages as well. We are very excited to have him here.” Fleming also adds another solid shooter to the roster, with the recruitment of 6’0 guard Mark Pereira. “Mark is a high character kid that can shoot the ball, defensively he is pretty strong, which is rare coming out of high school, so we are glad to add some depth at the guard position” Coach Wilson added. With these new acquisitions, the Knights look to improve on what they have built since Coach Wilson’s arrival two seasons ago. Their first taste of action will be up north in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario for an exhibition tournament on September 23-24. Go Knights!

Knights star earns Player of the Year title
March 9, 2016 – Jacob White of the Fleming Knights has been named the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association Men’s Volleyball Player of the Year.
White received the award this evening at the 2016 CCAA Men’s Volleyball National Championship banquet, hosted by Douglas College in New Westminster, B.C.
“Jacob represents the CCAA very well,” said David Munro, VP Sport Development. “He is a leader on the court where he is known for his competitiveness and fair play and he also excels off the court with strong academic performance.”
This season, White led the Knights to a 16-4 record and first-place finish in the OCAA’s East Division. He led the conference in both points per set (5.1) and kills per set (4.35). He also added 44 blocks in 68 sets.
The third-year left side was the OCAA east region scoring champion, leading all OCAA players averaging 5.1 points per set. White totaled 347 points on 296 kills, 44 blocks and seven service aces, leading the Fleming Knights to the east regional championship. White is now a two-time Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) all-Canadian, as well as an OCAA east division first-team all-star.
