Hornibrook and Comeau Named Piper Athletes Of The Month
HannahHornibrook and Vinny Comeau from Alexander Galt High School have been named the Piper athletes of the month for October as sponsored by the Bishop’s University Athletic Department.
Hornibrook helped lead the girls flag football team to a 4-0 record in the month of October. The speedy receiver from Lennoxville scored 12 touchdowns in four games. Every time she touched the ball she was a threat to score and her teammates followed her leadership and experience. The grade 11 student was instrumental in her leading the Galt team to the RSEQ Championship last season and they look to repeat again this spring in the second half of the season. The 16-year old works just as hard in the classroom, where she sits on the Principal’s List every academic year. The three-sport student athlete will now turn her focus to basketball during the winter months as part of the starting five on the Senior Girls Basketball team.
As a member of the Senior Boys Football Team for three years Comeau rarely gets any recognition for his play as lineman on both side of the ball. He does not play a high profile position, but his coaching staff and peers know they would not be in the RSEQ Championship game this Saturday without his efforts. Assistant Coach Matt Nutbrown said, “Vinny is a prototypical lineman, one that any coach would love to have on his roster. He is gritty, tough and is a silent leader on the Pipers Football team. He is the lifeblood of the defense and the protector of the offense.”

He had 37 tackles, 7 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries all the while he played both sides of the ball and refused to take a play off.
