Winter Assembly Honours Top Athletes

Closing a season that was interrupted by a COVID surge, only to see teams finish strong, the Winter Athletic Assembly Tuesday evening celebrated the triumphs, lessons and top performances of the past several months.
The MVP trophy recipients for the varsity hockey teams were also both first-time recipients of Major S awards. Girls captain Stéphanie Bourque was recognized for her consistency and leadership and for being a warrior on the ice. For the varsity boys, coach Matthew Thompson said Aksel Jalojarvi made a difference in all three zones and showed tremendous respect and love for the game.
“I would simply not have wanted to have played a game without him,” he said.
In senior girls D3 basketball, Rosemary Lefebvre shared the MVP trophy for the second straight year. This year, the Grade 12 veteran was co-winner with second-year Grade 9 student Melissa Kakayuk-Antoine. Coach Erik Van Dyke noted Kakayuk-Antoine was the team’s most well-rounded player with a high basketball IQ. He called Lefebvre an impact player who has developed beautifully over four seasons, but especially noted her love for her team and the game. Both players also received Major S awards.
For senior boys D4 basketball, team captain Jorge Correia earned the second MVP trophy of his Stanstead career (soccer 2020) along with his first Major S for basketball. Coach Duane Liverpool described Correia as a leader both vocally and physically, perhaps the most talented in the league and an example of what hard work and dedication can do.
First-ever MVP trophies were also awarded for prep boys and girls hockey. For the boys, Eli Antoine was recognized for being the leading goal scorer and an honest, humble teammate. For the girls, leading scorer Rosalie Bouchard was recognized for her great potential and her ability to tilt the game in her team’s favour. Both players also received a Senior S.
Other Major S winners were Sofia Paradis (volleyball); Chaka Ntumba-Muntu, Nathan Garnier, Jeremy Leroux, Liam Steele (varsity boys hockey); and Gracie Gilkyson, Emma Kreisz (varsity girls hockey)
