Panthers Play Multiple Games this Weekend

Nov 9, 2018 | Canadore College

(NORTH BAY, ONT.) – The Canadore Panthers will be taking on the Seneca Sting, Centennial Colts and George Brown Huskies this weekend.

The Panthers men’s basketball team take the court against the Seneca Sting tonight at 7 p.m. and the Centennial Colts tomorrow at 3 p.m.

After coaching for 23 years, head basketball coach Stacy Gallagher reports a first in his experience. This year, three brothers are playing on the team.

“One year in high school, I had two brothers playing for me, but to have three at one time, especially in college, is something really special,” said Gallagher.

Guard Dejon Campbell was the first to join the team and now his brothers Caldre Campbell (guard) and Cadeem Campbell (guard) are on the court with him. Their sister, Angeline Campbell, also plays basketball for the Nipissing Lakers.

“Having three of my siblings here with me is amazing,” said Dejon Campbell. “Every now and then we’d talk about the possibilities of us playing together and living together. We went through a lot of unfortunate situations growing up together. Now that we’re here, together, it’s really kind of surreal.”

Cadeem, who grew up in New Jersey and Caldre from Toronto feel the same way. They say the game brought them together and has kept them together on and off the court.

The Campbell brothers and their teammates will take to the court again on Saturday against the Centennial Colts at 3 p.m.

The Panthers women’s volleyball team, ranked fifth in the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA), is playing games away against the George Brown Huskies on Saturday and the men’s volleyball team will face off against the Huskies on Saturday.

All events take place at the Education Centre gym. Admission is free, but as a part of the college’s food insecurity initiative, patrons are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to games to help stock the shelves of the North Bay Food Bank and the Canadore College Emergency Student Food Bank. Game enthusiasts also receive complimentary popcorn
