The Oban Times - - Leisure -

LOCHABER High School pupils Siob­han Cham­bers and Ryan Boyle have been pre­sented with the Fraser MacPhee Am­bas­sador for Sport tro­phy by Dun­can and Rose­mary MacPhee.

The tro­phy is pre­sented an­nu­ally in mem­ory of their son, Fraser, who died in 2002 while a pupil at Lochaber High School.

Siob­han, an S4 pupil, is a tal­ented ath­lete who has a par­tic­u­lar in­ter­est in gym­nas­tics and trains for seven hours ev­ery week.

She helps with coach­ing gym­nas­tics, tennis and multi-sport ac­tiv­i­ties where she has made an ‘out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion’ over the last two years.

Siob­han also en­joys climb­ing and par­tic­i­pates in Dance Plat­form.

Ryan, also an S4 pupil, cap­tained the North of Scot­land U14 Shinty team and was named Na­tional U14 Shinty Player of the Year in 2015.

He has cap­tained the school team that won the MacBean Cup three times and the MacPherson Cup twice.

Ryan was also an im­por­tant mem­ber of the team that won the Wade Cup at Kin­gussie this year. Ryan helps out with shinty train­ing for S1 pupils in the school and with U14 train­ing at Fort Wil­liam Shinty Club.

Both Siob­han and Ryan are also Sportscot­land Young Am­bas­sadors, pro­mot­ing sport and in­spir­ing their peers to get in­volved in sport at the school, at lo­cal sports clubs and in the com­mu­nity.

Siob­han Cham­bers and Ryan Boyle were pre­sented with the tro­phy by Rose­mary and Dun­can MacPhee.
