St. Thomas Aquinas honoured its top athletes at their Annual Sports Awards Banquet in June. Taking the award for Senior Female Athlete of the Year was Chelsea Henderson.

“I’m really excited. I love playing with my teammates, they’re my family,” she says.

The all-star athlete plans to play basketball, hockey and soccer again next year and she’s hoping for another successful year.

Jayson Lebel was named Senior Male Athlete of the Year. He helped the Saints Boys soccer team to a gold medal in the NorWOSSA Championship game.

“We sadly came short in NWOSSA in penalty kicks, but I’m just happy to play with such a great group of guys. Just being able to play here at T.A is an honour. The school is so supportive, along with the staff. It’s wonderful,” he says.

Kenora Rowing Club athletes returned home from Regina after the club sent seven rowers to the Western Canadian Sprints Championship Regatta, which included teams from Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Lakeland and Calgary.  Gabby Boulet, Lexie From, and Jan Rondilla, three high school novice athletes, competed in their first regatta and placed third in the Novice Women’s quad with a Winnipeg Crew member filling in the fourth spot.

The St. Thomas Aquinas Saints girls soccer team were named as the NWOSSA Champions. The team travelled to Marathon, ON for the regionals where they took down the host team 3-1. The St. Thomas Aquinas Saints boys soccer team just couldn't hold on, as they earned a silver medal in the NWOSSA 'A' final game
