Piper Ath­letes Of The Month

Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Robert Fisk, Spe­cial col­lab­o­ra­tion

DanikaLam­bert of the Ju­nior Girls Bas­ket­ball Team and James Mur­ray of the Se­nior Boys Bas­ket­ball Team were named Piper Ath­letes of the month for De­cem­ber.

Lam­bert is a Grade nine point guard that led her team to a 6-0 record in the ETIAC and RSEQ AA leagues. In six games the Sher­brooke res­i­dent av­er­aged 15.8 points per game and led her team in as­sists. The Sher­brooke Ele­men­tary grad is a quiet leader on the court as she lets her play do the talk­ing. Off the court she is al­ways help­ing her team­mates and giv­ing them ad­vice when asked. She brings a calm­ing con­fi­dent pres­ence to the team as she brings the ball up the floor, even un­der pres­sure.

Mur­ray is a Grade eleven-point guard that helped his team to a 3-2 record in the ETIAC and RSEQ AA leagues. In five games the Stanstead res­i­dent scored 63 points and led his team in as­sists all five games. The Sun­ny­side grad also shot 87% from the free throw line in which he hit eight clutch free throws in the fi­nal sec­onds of two games to help lead his team to vic­tory. Mur­ray han­dles the ball with great poise un­der pres­sure and his floor vi­sion al­lows him to dis­trib­ute the ball to all of his team­mates. Mur­ray plans on con­tin­u­ing his bas­ket­ball ca­reer at the CEGEP level af­ter he grad­u­ates from Galt this year.
