Bagotville sports awards
Hockey is in the spotlight this year in Bagotville as almost all of the winners announced at the sport dinner on April 17th participated in one or more of the Base's hockey teams.
Bagotville’s Men's Athlete of the Year was awarded to MCpl Théodore Van Houtte, for his participation in both the ice hockey team and the ball hockey team. The female athlete of the year, Capt Claudia Banville, has also excelled on ice as well as on concrete. Same for Capt Gerry Caron, who as coach of the year led both the ice hockey and ball hockey teams. The official of the year was awarded to Sgt Bernard Lachapelle, hockey referee. Not surprisingly, the ball hockey team, which won the national championship in 2017, was named Team of the Year. Finally, MCpl Mathieu Castonguay received recognition for his involvement in all levels of sports at CFB Bagotville. Local recipients will be nominated to Air Command for selection for the Canadian Armed Forces Sports Award Gala to be held next October in Ottawa.
