TheBishop’s Univer­sity Depart­ment of Ath­let­ics and Re­cre­ation is pleased to an­nounce Kelly McInerney, women’s soc­cer and Alex Hen­der­son, men’s lacrosse as the Provigo Robert La­fond Ath­letes of the Week.

McInerney, a sec­ond year sports stud­ies stu­dent from Whitby, On­tario scored the Lady Gaiters lone goal in a 1-1 draw with the Con­cor­dia Stingers on Sun­day, Septem­ber 16 in Montreal. She was also solid on the back line as the Gaiters played the Univer­sité de Sher­brooke Vert et Or on Fri­day, Septem­ber 14 in Sher­brooke. They fell 6-0 to one of the strong­est teams in the prov­ince. McInerney helped con­tain the dan­ger­ous Sher­brooke of­fence that had the po­ten­tial for even more scor­ing chances.

“She is the hard­est worker on the field,” said Phil Ribaux, head coach of the Lady Gaiters. “She never gets beat de­fen­sively even against Sher­brooke who is one of the top teams in the coun­try.”

Hen­der­son and the men’s Lacrosse team played a reg­u­lar sea­son game on the week­end. Their home opener took place on Coul­ter Field on Sun­day, Septem­ber 16 against the Car­leton Ravens.

He also added two as­sists.

“He led the of­fense and power play and was in­stru­men­tal in the win,” said Drew Pol­lock, coach of the men’s lacrosse team. “He was also named a cap­tain this week and re­ally stepped up.” Honourable men­tions: Scott Best, Men’s Rugby: Best scored two tries for the Gaiters as they opened their sea­son with a 29-0 vic­tory over the Univer­sity de Montreal Cara­bins on Sun­day, Septem­ber 16.

Alexan­der Fox, Football: Fox caught 6 passes for 111 yards and a touch­down against the No. 4 Montreal Cara­bins on Satur­day. The Gaiters lost 45-15

“To have suc­ceeded in hav­ing two hon­orary pres­i­dents who in­car­nate so well, each in his own way, that which I want the cir­cuit to rep­re­sent warms my heart,” said Patrick Mahoney, the di­rec­tor of the

“I wanted to find two peo­ple from the re­gion who un­der­stood the im­pact a hospi­tal cen­tre has in a community.”

Eric Lu­cas was a World Cham­pion in the World Box­ing As­so­ci­a­tion from July 10, 2001, to April 5th, 2003, rep­re­sent­ing the com­pet­i­tive side of the Marathon. “I al­ways loved to run and one day I hope to com­plete a marathon. I’ve been run­ning for years. When Patrick ap­proached me for the Ma­gog Marathon, I thought it was a great idea so I got on board. I plan on run­ning the 5 km race.”

Mario Langlois is a well-known fig­ure in the Quebec me­dia both on tele­vi­sion and on ra­dio. He is plan­ning on do­ing the 5 km walk. “In my case, it’s not a ques­tion of com­ing first, but just of par­tic­i­pat­ing and en­cour­ag­ing oth­ers to move more. I think this marathon is a good ini­tia­tive for the re­gion and for the peo­ple of the re­gion. The fam­ily as­pect of the event also at­tracted me.”

A part of the prof­its of the will be do­nated to the

Both of the co-pres­i­dents have had hospi­tal ex­pe­ri­ences and un­der­stand the value of hav­ing a hospi­tal ca­pa­ble of re­spond­ing to the needs of the pop­u­la­tion.
