Stanstead Journal - - LENOXVILLE NEWS - Lennoxville, Sher­brooke

Bas­ket­ball play­ers Kyle Des­marais and Edith Noble­cilla earned top honours at the Bishop’s Uni­ver­sity Ath­letic Awards Night held at the Delta Ho­tel in Sher­brooke on Wed­nes­day night. They were named male and fe­male Ath­letes of the Year re­spec­tively.

Other ma­jor award win­ners in­cluded long-time fans and Gaiter sup­port­ers Kel­ley Pa­trick and Charles Ko­belt of Lennoxville who were awarded the Ray Almond Award for ris­ing above the ex­pected and de­liv­er­ing an in­valu­able ser­vice to Gaiter Ath­let­ics. Jean Gayrard (Thet­ford Mines, Que.) of the men’s foot­ball team and Kelly Brad­bury (Burling­ton, Ont.) of the women’s soc­cer team were named Aca­demic Stu­dent-Ath­letes of the Year and rugby player Brock Spencer (Stittsville, Ont.) and Noemie Hamel-Pe­tit (Ma­gog, Que.) of the women’s bas­ket­ball team were the top fresh­men Gaiters.

Des­marais (Mon­treal) was a fifth-year trans­fer from Con­cor­dia. He chose to fin­ish his play­ing ca­reer in pur­ple and sil­ver with hope of win­ning a cham­pi­onship. He did not dis­ap­point and the men’s bas­ket­ball MVP led Bishop’s to the 2015 RSEQ Cham­pi­onship, a feat they had not ac­com­plished since 1999. His 14.4 points per game in the regular sea­son was sec­ond in the con­fer­ence as were his 2.6 steals per game. He also chipped in with 5.3 re­bounds per game, and 3.0 as­sists per game while earn­ing a first-team RSEQ all-star se­lec­tion. Des­marais was also a three-time Provigo, Robert Lafond Bishop’s Ath­lete of the Week.
