Mark D'Agostino
Male Athlete of the Year
Vanier College 2005-2006 Athletics Awards Banquet

Presented by Athletic Coordinator Linda Macpherson.


Once again the candidates for this year's athlete of the year are outstanding.

During his three-year career at Vanier College we have watched this young man emerge into one of the top players in the province. He is a captain of his team who leads by example and takes his leadership role seriously by helping out his younger team mates at every opportunity.

Making an immediate impact in his rookie season, he helped his team reach the provincial final and win a wildcard berth at the National Championship for the first time in 14 years. His second year saw another milestone reached as he helped Vanier win our first provincial championship in 15 years, and a second consecutive trip to the National Championship.

In his final season as a Cheetah, he was the 5th leading scorer in the league and was named to the All Star team for the second consecutive year as well as being named to the league All Academic Team as Vanier's top student.

He will leave us to go on to Delaware State University next year, where he has accepted a full athletic scholarship and will compete in NCAA Division I.

He has had an outstanding career at Vanier College and embodies all that we ask our student-athletes to be, representing us at all times with dignity and class.

Congratulations to Vanier 2006 Athlete of the Year, from the Basketball Team - Mark D'Agostino.
