Vanier Alumni Dual Sport Award
This is a new award that was created due to a donation by one of the captains of our National Championship winning basketball team in 1987. Nick Katerinakis is now a successful businessman living in Toronto and wanted to give something back to the program that he felt he had gained so much from, so he has pledged a $250 annual donation to be awarded to a student athlete who is able to combine playing for two teams while maintaining passing grades.
The inaugural recipient of this award is setting the bar at a pretty high standard. While playing two fall sports which had her on the field practicing four nights per week plus 2 to 3 games on the weekend, she was able to complete her college DEC and is now studying at University.
From soccer and flag football, SAMANTHA RANKIN.
