VANIER CELEBRATES ITS BEST AND BRIGHTEST ATHLETES
May 14, 2015


Vanier Athletics continued our annual tradition of celebrating our best and brightest students at this year's Athletic Awards Ceremony. You are invited to see winners and candid shots from this year's festivities which were held on May 8th in Vanier's Auditorium and hosted once again by our special guest MC, Bill Mahon. Some highlights from the evening are presented below, but there are links at the bottom of this page to the award winners who were in attendance as well as to a page of candid photos. Jonathan Cyga was the event photographer.

COACH OF THE YEAR

The 2014-2015 Coach of the Year award went to Peter Chryssomalis, coach of our Division 1 Men's Football Cheetahs. He is seen at right accepting the award from Athletic Coordinator Mai Nguyen.

Peter led the team the Cheetahs to a tremendous regular season record of 9-1. This is Peter's 11th year as head coach and it's a tribute to the success of our football program that no fewer than 24 of his protegés from that period were on this year's CFL Draft list.
