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.
