Con­grat­u­la­tion­sto Sarah Poudrier from the Se­nior Girls bas­ket­ball team and An­thony John­son from the Se­nior Boys hockey team as they have been named Piper Ath­letes of the month for Novem­ber.

Poudrier is one of two re­turn­ing starters from last year’s team and she has demon­strated her lead­er­ship in the early stages of the sea­son by lead­ing the team in scor­ing and re­bounds in all three games. The Sawyerville na­tive scored 40 points in 3 games, pulled in 30 re­bounds and ac­cu­mu­lated a dozen steals. The three-year se­nior was also named co-cap­tain by head coach Glenn Faucher as she ex­em­pli­fies a team­first at­ti­tude and clearly leads by ex­am­ple on and off the court.

John­son broke his col­lar­bone last year so he only played a dozen games and was not able to show his on ice cre­ativ­ity like he has this year. The East-An­gus na­tive has brought his team­mates and fans to their feet with his speed and quick hands to score seven goals in 7 games and has set up six other goals for a to­tal of 13 points. Two of his goals were game win­ning goals. The Grade 10 stu­dent was also named to the Alexan­der Galt Tour­na­ment all-star team for his achieve­ments on the ice.
