Andrews Named Provigo Robert Lafond Athelte Of The Week
TheBishop’s University Department of Athletics and Recreation is pleased to announce that Mike Andrews of the men’s basketball team is the Provigo, Robert Lafond Athlete of the week. Andrews and his Gaiters teammates topped the Concordia Stingers 84-71 on Sunday, February 10th in a key RSEQ match-up.
The third year Oakville, Ontario native dominated the paint in the Gaiters lone contest of the week. The game originally scheduled for Friday night was postponed due to inclement weather. The cold outside did not affect the 6’10” education major. He scored 20 points on 10-11 shooting, grabbed 10 rebounds, had four blocks and two assists in the matinee in Mitchell Gymnasium.
“Mike played a very strong game for us,” said Gaiters head coach Rod Gilpin. “He controlled the paint and that was a key to our success.”
The victory moved the Gaiters (9-4) two games up on the Stingers (7-6) and back into a tie for first place in the RSEQ with the McGill Redmen (9-4).

AlexanderGalt High School didn’t have the best weather for its Winter Carnival last week, frigid temperatures and not much snow, but that didn’t stop the students from having fun and competing for the carnival win. Luckily, there are as many or more indoor activities, like team volleyball, tugof-war, cookie baking contests, dance contests etc. during the carnival as outdoor activities like broomball, the egg toss, horse wagon rides or the human dog sled.
This year’s winning Carnival team was the Lizards with 435 points. In second place was the team of Gremlins, with 375 points, and the Tasmanian Devils came third with 360 points. The Armadillos were last with 215 points. The students of the school are divided into the four teams to compete during Carnival week.
The Penny Race, which has been an annual fund-raiser during the Carnival for about eight years, collected almost $600. This money will be given to the Trust Fund which was set up for the children of the late Christine Guillette Haseltine, an Alexander Galt High School employee who passed away last year.
The penny race will morph into the Coin Race next year, this isn’t so much of a stretch since nickels are also collected, and the tradition will continue.
You wouldn’t know that it was about -20 degrees looking at this happy sledder during Galt’s Carnival.
