Wise­man-Beese and En­rick Jus­tras Plante have been named the Piper Ath­letes of the month for April at Alexan­der Galt High School. Beese won the Ju­nior Girls Sin­gles gold medal at the 46th An­nual Galt Bad­minton Tour­na­ment this past week­end. The 15-year old went un­de­feated through­out the tour­na­ment post­ing an 8-0 record. The grade 9 stu­dent brought a good at­ti­tude and worked hard every prac­tice in prepa­ra­tion for the com­pe­ti­tion. The Austin res­i­dent also ex­cels in the class­room where she sits on the Prin­ci­pals List. Jus­tras Plante won the Ju­nior Boys Sin­gles gold medal, but did it the hard way. The 15 year old lost his first game of the tour­na­ment and was forced to win the rest of his games or be knocked out. The Ma­gog res­i­dent has been part of the sports con­cen­tra­tion pro­gram for four years now and aca­dem­i­cally sits on the Hon­our Roll List. Ath­letic co-or­di­na­tor Rob­bie Fisk said, “I am proud of En­rick as he took on a big chal­lenge when he came to Galt as a 12 year old boy. He could hardly speak a word of English. Four years later he is bilin­gual and ex­cels in two sports (bad­minton and hockey) and a model stu­dent for our younger stu­dents.”

The Alexan­der Galt bad­minton team won the school’s 46th an­nual tour­na­ment over the week­end.
