Lum­ley & Day Caron Named Piper Ath­letes Of The Month

Stanstead Journal - - LEN NOXVILLE NEWS - Spe­cial col­lab­o­ra­tion, Bran­don Lis­ter Galt Me­dia Lit­er­acy Class Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

Jack­iLum­ley from the Se­nior Girls Bas­ket­ball Team and Keven Day Caron from the Ban­tam Boys Bas­ket­ball Team have been named the Piper Ath­letes of the month for March.

Lum­ley is a grad­u­at­ing stu­dent that helped her team ad­vance to the Cham­pi­onship game in the tough RSEQ AA league. The 16 year old av­er­aged 8 points and 10 re­bounds per game in March. As a three­year vet­eran she played a big lead­er­ship role on the court with her tough de­fen­sive pres­ence. Her ex­pe­ri­ence was valu­able as the girls al­most up­set the heav­ily fa­vorite team from Sacre Coeur in the Cham­pi­onship game only to lose by 3 points. The Len­noxville El­e­men­tary grad also leads by ex­am­ple off the court as in­di­cated by her 92% aver­age. She was also cho­sen by her grad­u­at­ing peers to be this year’s Vale­dic­to­rian. The Len­noxville res­i­dent plans on at­tend­ing Cham­plain Col­lege next year and play­ing on the Cougar bas­ket­ball team.

Day Caron is a grade 7 stu­dent that kept get­ting stronger as the sea­son went on. Part of this can be at­trib­uted to be­ing in the Sports Con­cen­tra­tion Pro­gram in which the 12 year- old trains and prac­tices three days a week on his skills. The Sher­brooke res­i­dent av­er­aged 10 points per game in the strong RSEQ AA league. His tough de­fense, work ethic and com­mit­ment made him a force to reckon with when he was on the court. The two-sport ath­lete will join the Ban­tam Foot­ball team next year and help lead the bas­ket­ball team to a play off berth next year. The Sher­brooke El­e­men­tary grad is the new wave of stu­dents from that school en­rolling at Galt be­cause of its wide va­ri­ety of new pro­grams.
