SLC honours athletes
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).
