Stanstead Journal - - LEN NOXVILLE NEWS - Spe­cial col­lab­o­ra­tion, Ro­bie Fisk, Galt

Philips from the Se­nior girls bas­ket­ball team and Jarod Stone from the Ju­nior boys bas­ket­ball team have been named the Pipers Ath­letes of the month for Novem­ber from Alexan­der Galt High School.

Philips is a Grade 11 stu­dent ath­lete that trans­ferred to Galt this year to im­prove her bilin­gual ed­u­ca­tion and bas­ket­ball skills. The Stanstead res­i­dent has helped her team jump out to a good start on the sea­son with a 4-1 record in the tough RSEQ AA league. The 16-year old point guard clearly leads her team on the court with 19 points and 9 as­sists per game. Along with her out­stand­ing shoot­ing and drib­bling skills she brings along a tremen­dous work ethic. Phillips has al­ready com­mit­ted to play for Steve Cas­sivi and the Cham­plain Cougars next year in the CEGEP AAA league.

Stone has been the driv­ing force be­hind his teams’ 6-1 record to start the sea­son. The Grade nine stu­dent ath­lete has av­er­aged 20 points and 10 re­bounds a game and is clearly their go to guy on the court. The 14-year old has been part of the Sports Con­cen­tra­tion Pro­gram at Galt for three years now which has played a big part in his de­vel­op­ment as a an strong ath­lete. The power for­ward may not be very vo­cal on and off the court as he lets his strength, power, quick­ness and skill do the talk­ing and in a big way. Stone and his team­mates have their eyes set on an RSEQ AA and ETIAC cham­pi­onships this sea­son be­fore he jumps up to the Se­nior team next year as a starter.
