Chelsy was rec­og­nized for her lead­er­ship, self­sac­ri­fice and never-say-die at­ti­tude on and off the field. “She cares so much about the game,” said Coach Eryn Hes­sian.

The other MVP tro­phy win­ner of the evening was Chris Sa­vory of Turks & Caicos, who won the Don­ald Ross Tro­phy and a Ma­jor S for se­nior boys rugby. Coach Eric Gre­nier de­scribed him as hav­ing a nat­u­ral tal­ent and an abil­ity to make prac­tices fun. Plus, said Coach G, “his tack­les are sick.”

Other rugby Ma­jor S awards went to Cather­ine Quirion of Lac-Mégantic, Que. for her fast and elec­tri­fy­ing skills on the field; Brian Taylor of Kanata, Ont., for his strength and in­ten­sity; and team cap­tain Thomas Wenzel of Wolk­ers­dorf, Aus­tria for his phe­nom­e­nal de­ci­sion­mak­ing.

There were three Ma­jor S awards given to the ten­nis team, which won the ETIAC league ti­tle for the sec­ond year run­ning. The first went to Justin Lafleur of Gatineau, Que. for his high-im­pact play and de­ter­mi­na­tion.
