sports were celebrated. And what a year it was! Highlights included

win at the Provincial Championships which they won right here
at Vanier, as well as their Bronze
Medal win at the Nationals in Truro, Nova Scotia. Another
BIG story was the AAA Men's Football Provincial
"Bol d'Or" Championship title which they took for
an amazing second year in a row.
the top awards that were distributed were the ones for Female Athlete
of the Year given to AAA Women's Basketball star Marie-Ève
Martin (seen at left with Athletics coordinator Mireille

of the Year given to AAA Football Cheetahs star Myles Gibbon
(seen at right with Sports Complex Manager Linda Macpherson
