Stanstead Journal - - LENOXVILLE NEWS - Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

Bishop’sUniver­sity an­nounced to­day that the Mon­treal Alou­ettes will re­turn to cam­pus in Sher­brooke for its 2014 train­ing camp. For the fifth con­sec­u­tive year, the foot­ball team will hold all work­outs and prac­tices on cam­pus at Coul­ter Field. Newly ap­pointed head coach Tom Hig­gins and Gen­eral Man­ager Jim Popp will catch a first glimpse of their play­ers when camp opens on Sun­day, June 1, where no less than 75 play­ers are ex­pected to hit the field.

Michael Gold­bloom, C.M., Prin­ci­pal and ViceChan­cel­lor of Bishop’s Univer­sity, said: “We are very pleased that the Alou­ettes will be back on cam­pus. Bishop’s has a foot­ball tra­di­tion and the Alou­ettes are an out­stand­ing or­ga­ni­za­tion. Train­ing camp af­fords a unique op­por­tu­nity to meet the play­ers and I en­cour­age ev­ery­one in the re­gion to come to Coul­ter Field to watch them in ac­tion.”

“We are very happy to re­turn to Bishop’s for the 5th con­sec­u­tive year. The school of­fers our play­ers and coaches first class fa­cil­i­ties and an at­mos­phere that al­lows them to keep their con­cen­tra­tion at the high­est level dur­ing this im­por­tant learn­ing phase,” said Jim Popp. “Our fans, the me­dia, as well as area schools are more than wel­come to visit us on a daily ba­sis. We will gladly make time to an­swer all your ques­tions. Train­ing camp is the best way to get to see your fa­vorite player up close and per­sonal.”

All prac­tices dur­ing train­ing camp are open to the pub­lic. The 2014 train­ing camp sched­ule will be sent out shortly. It will also be avail­able by vis­it­ing MontrealAlouettes.com.
