Philips and Stone Named November Athletes of the Month
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.
