Kas­san­draNay­lor of the Ban­tam Girls Bas­ket­ball team and Sam Wub­bolts of the Ban­tam Boys Bas­ket­ball team were named the Piper Ath­letes of the month for Fe­bru­ary.

Nay­lor is a grade eight stu­dent that helped her team win the ETIAC Cham­pi­onship and play big min­utes in the tough RSEQ AA league. In four games the tall for­ward av­er­aged 17 points, 6 re­bounds and 3 steals per game in the month of Fe­bru­ary. Coach Tracey Comeau said, “Kas­san­dra is a hard worker in prac­tice and has learned to ap­ply this in games. Her game within the paint has be­come the key to our team.” The Comp­ton res­i­dent is also a stand­out in the class­room with an 87% av­er­age and on the Prin­ci­pals List. Like most of her team­mates, the North Hately grad will take her tal­ent, work ethic and great at­ti­tude up the ju­nior level next year where she has al­ready been called up for a few games.

Wub­bolts is also a grade eight stu­dent ath­lete that helped lead his team to an 8-1 record in the month of Fe­bru­ary, in­clud­ing an ETIAC Cham­pi­onship and a sil­ver medal in the RSEQ play offs. The thir­teen-year old for­ward av­er­aged 13 points per game and led his team in as­sists and re­bounds. Coach Caleb Page said, “Sam is a de­ter­mined and fo­cused leader on the court as he will dive for loose balls, guard the op­pos­ing teams top scorer and demon­strate great sports­man­ship as he scores big points in crit­i­cal parts of the game.” Off the court, the three-sport stu­dent ath­lete is also on the Prin­ci­pals List with a 94% av­er­age.
