Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Robert Fisk, Spe­cial col­lab­o­ra­tion, Galt

Bri­an­naGrapes from the se­nior girls bas­ket­ball team and Hunter Haskell from the se­nior boys hockey team have been named the Piper Ath­letes of the months for March.

Grapes av­er­aged 12 points, 6 as­sists and 6 re­bounds per game dur­ing the month while help­ing her team win the sil­ver medal in the RSEQ AA league play offs. The shoot­ing guard hit many clutch shots through­out the month in­clud­ing three point­ers. The 15 year old leads by ex­am­ple on and off the court. She con­stantly works hard on per­fect­ing her bas­ket­ball skills dur­ing lunch hours, bas­ket­ball con­cen­tra­tion and prac­tices. The Water­ville res­i­dent is also on the hon­our roll list for her aca­demic achieve­ments. The grade ten stu­dent will re­turn next year and pro­vide more great lead­er­ship and cham­pi­onships.

Haskell help lead the Pipers to an ETIAC play off cham­pi­onship while record­ing five goals and three as­sists in three games. The vet­eran cen­ter logged heavy min­utes on the power play and penalty kill as well. The 16 year old used his blaz­ing speed to cre­ate space and scor­ing chances for his team­mates. The Stanstead na­tive will re­turn next year and his lead­er­ship and ex­pe­ri­ence will be vi­tal for the young team to be suc­cess­ful.
