Another year has come and gone for the Athletics program at John Paul II.
The Collegiate held its Athletics Awards night at their gymnasium yesterday night, with 61 awards presented to the athletes. They were presented with awards such as MVP, most improved, top offensive/defensive, and top crusader- just to name a few of the long list of accolades presented.
Athletics Director Vic Stynsky said he was extremely pleased with the turnout.
“It was an excellent turnout,” Stynsky said. “It's nice to see all of the parents, coaches and athletes gather together at the end of the year to celebrate our successes and also our trials we went through in the season. It’s a positive way to end the season, its nice to see the crowd in excess of 180 people, it’s great.”
The night began with greetings from Stynsky, followed by the opening prayer and a supper, which was made by staff and volunteers. The night was to honour not only the athletes' accomplishments on the playing side, but also with them as young adults, something Stynsky said he believes is crucial in molding great young citizens.
“Our athletes, year after year surprise us by not only being successful with what they do on the field or the court, just in how they handle themselves and how they make our coaches proud and how they live the Catholic faith through the sports,” he said.
“We’re looking forward to another great season next year,” he said. “I really appreciate all the time that our coaches put in and all the support from our administration is second to none. I can imagine that that will continue next year and build on what we’ve had this year.”
