Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Len­noxville, Sher­brooke

Happy and proud Bor­der Pee-Wee Jets are: (front row), goalies Dy­lan Knight and Bryce Champ­ney, (kneel­ing) Patrick Lavallee and Riley Larocque and (stand­ing), Adam Houle, Korey Goudreau, Daw­son Coates, Adam Sykes, Daniel Lanoue, Mathis Robert, Lu­cas Steven­son, Ju­lia Ballinger, Lo­gan Be­asse and Noah Shel­don. In the rear are head coach Travis Shel­don and as­sis­tants Brent Lavallee and Marc Lanoue.

Kelsey Burn­ham, Vin­cent De­lange and Olivier Gre­nier have been named the March ath­letes of the month at Alexan­der Galt High School. Burn­ham helped lead her team to a bronze medal in the RSEQ ju­ve­nile girls AA bas­ket­ball league by av­er­ag­ing 12 points, 14 re­bounds and 5 steals per game. Head coach Jon Goyette said, “she played with a lot of heart and de­ter­mi­na­tion and rarely came off the floor and pro­vided great lead­er­ship at both ends of the court for us”. The 16-year old se­nior also ex­cels aca­dem­i­cally by be­ing part of the hon­our roll list. The Sher­brooke res­i­dent has been part of the sports con­cen­tra­tion pro­gram for five years and will now turn her fo­cus to win­ning an­other gold medal in bad­minton.

De­lange and Gre­nier dom­i­nated the RSEQ bad­minton cir­cuit all year and they re­cently won the gold medal at the re­gional cham­pi­onships this past month in the ju­ve­nile boys dou­ble cat­e­gory. The se­nior stu­dents will rep­re­sent the Estrie at the pro­vin­cial cham­pi­onships in Amqui, Que­bec April 23 and 24. De­lange also won the gold medal in the sin­gles cat­e­gory while Gre­nier won the sil­ver medal in the sin­gles cat­e­gory. We wish them the best of luck as they have rep­re­sented Galt very well on and off the court for the last five years.
