SLC hon­ours ath­letes

The Glengarry News - - Sports - Sean Bray

St. Lawrence Col­lege last month hon­oured its top ath­letes, and amongst them were Glen­gar­ri­ans, in­clud­ing Chelsea Cayer, who was rec­og­nized as the school’s fe­male ath­lete of the year.

Cayer, a na­tive of Wil­liamstown and grad­u­ate of Char-Lan DHS, ays she was was shocked by the award: ”It was very un­ex­pected.”

In rec­og­niz­ing the multi-sport ath­lete, SLC noted her as “a force on and off the field, court, and rink.” She main­tained a 3.85 GPA as a stu­dent in be­havioural psy­chol­ogy, whilst man­ag­ing a de­mand­ing sports sched­ule that had her trav­el­ling across On­tario.

Cayer cap­tained the women’s soc­cer team on which she was sec­ond in scor­ing. She also played bas­ket­ball and hockey.

An­other county hon­ouree was Colton Gallant, who calls Alexan­dria home. He says he was quite sur­prised to re­ceive the Barry Eller­beck Me­mo­rial Award, which is given to the stu­dent-ath­lete who demon­strates out­stand­ing work ethic, ded­i­ca­tion, and con­tri­bu­tion through vol­un­teer­ing to de­velop and pro­mote sport in the com­mu­nity.

On the hon­our, he posted on­line an ap­pre­ci­a­tion to “all the amaz­ing peo­ple in my life” whose help and sup­port were key.

This was St. Lawrence Col­lege’s first tri-cam­pus awards ban­quet. The col­lege has schools in Corn­wall, Brockville, and Kingston.

Other Glen­gar­ri­ans rec­og­nized with awards in­cluded Glen Robertson’s Sean Wil­son-Miller (MVP, men’s in­door soc­cer) and Kara Sin­nott (de­fen­sive player of the year, women’s soc­cer).
