Athletes of the Month - October

High School Boys - Aaron Walls
The Senior Boys Athlete of the Month for October is Aaron Walls.  Walls played a big role on the powerhouse season that our Senior Boys Soccer Team had. He was awarded Athlete of the Month because of his stellar soccer performance coming down to the crunch. Coach Mr. Buggie was very pleased with his efforts as he was able to play through the pressure of elimination. He scored 2 big goals in the boys Regionals against ESA and MFR. Walls has shown great efforts and skill throughout the season. He believes that the team had a fantastic season, but just came up short of their worth at Provincials. He believes that it's unfortunate that they didn't get another Provincial banner, but hockey season is fast approaching and could open more doors for our boys.

High School Girls - K.C. Hallihan
Senior Girls Athlete of the Month for October is K.C Hallihan. Hallihan was awarded Athlete of the Month because of her amazing efforts in net for the Senior Girls Soccer team this season. "K.C has been unreal in the net for the girls, never letting in an easy goal," coach Matthew Sturgeon said. She is a brick wall, recording many shutouts throughout the season. Hallihan has showed an abundance of skill in the net, always coming up big for our girls; especially during important games.

Middle School Boys - Owen Underhill
Middle School Boys Athletes of the Month for October are Hudson Underhill and Owen Underhill. The boys were awarded this award for their involvement in Middle School soccer.  Hudson always played hard and scored often.  He also showed exceptionally strong skills in being a team leader. Owen has also been chosen because of his great efforts in net during the jamboree and throughout the season. He helped keep the boys in every game until the very end with his goaltending. The boys had a very strong season and came up just short at the jamboree losing 2-0 against a very strong Nelson team; the team that went on to win the banner.
Middle School Boys - Hudson Underhill

Hudson believes he had a good last year of Middle School soccer and he is excited for his rookie campaign in High School next season. He hopes the boys will have what it takes to win it next year.

Owen said he would've liked to see the boys go a bit further, taking a tough loss at the end of the season. He wishes the best of luck to the middle school team next year.

Middle School Girls - Amber Walls

Middle School Girls Athlete of the Month for October is Amber Walls. Walls played on the Middle School Girls Soccer team. She was awarded this because of her tough defence in soccer. She played hard every game and never gave up on a play. Walls shows true leadership skills on and off of the field.
