game and came very close
to saying goodbye to her athletic career. Luckily for us, she
chose the more difficult path and started on the long road to
recovery. After several medical nightmares and obstacles that
needed to be overcome, she struggled through her 2nd season to
become a big contributor in her third year.
This past season she was
instrumental in all the successes the team enjoyed. Named to
the league All Star team and also Vanier's academic award winner,
she has set the benchmark in the classroom as well. A leader
by example, she is the heart and soul of the Cheetahs basketball
team. Rochelle's personal sacrifices to constantly put the team
ahead of her own personal goals and the character she has shown
to overcome adversity makes her this year's Athlete of the Year.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Rochelle Forbes." (As presented by Bruce Ruiter)
