Participants, coaches, and their families are on the way home to communities across the province, after spending the weekend in Cape Breton for the 2014 edition of the Jeux de l'Acadie.

A total of 635 students from French schools across Nova Scotia took part in the games including Grade 9 student Hillary DeWolfe, from Pomquet, who competed in badminton.

"I've participated for four years and I thought it was very fun," she said. "Getting to see all the delegations come together was fun."

Kelsey MacEachern, a Grade 12 student from Pomquet and former games player, was coaching DeWolfe and other badminton players at this year's games.

"It was a lot fun to see all the delegations get together and cheer each other on. It was fun coaching a good group of girls too," she said. "When you're playing you're more kinda more competitive but when you're coaching you get to see how much fun the kids are having and cheering each on. It's really cool."

There was also a lot of school pride on the line for participants like Stewart MacLean, a Grade 7 student at Ecole Beau-Port in Arichat.

"It was fun. I was playing basketball and we got third place," he said. "I'm pretty sure it's the first time in our school's history that we got third. It's the best we've done in a long time."

Now in its 30th year, the regional Jeux de l'Acadie are an opportunity to showcase athletes in an all-French environment. Sebastien Belzile, event spokesperson for the host Etoile de l'Acadie in Sydney, said Sunday that the games were a success.

"The organizing committee is really happy to say that everything ran smoothly. The kids were really happy about the weekend," he said.

Following Sunday's closing ceremony at Cape Breton University's Canada Games complex, Belzile said the participants demonstrated the true spirit of the games throughout the three-day event.

"The games are not all about winning. It's also about sharing experiences and giving 100 per cent in their discipline," he said.
