Piper Athletes Of The Month
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.
