Year in review: Basketball, captain; volleyball, captain, middle, setter, lost in TVRA South-East 1-A final; student athletic association president for second year; Environmental club; International Travel club.

Moments: "My favourite memory of this past season was being able to play setter in volleyball for a few games. Due to my height and blocking skills, I was always required to play middle, but sometimes my coach would put me in as setter, which was a position I always wanted to try."

Career highlights: Four years of basketball, four years of volleyball, two years of badminton, three years of track and field (3&400-metre hurdles, 1500m run, steeplechase, discus). Advanced to WOSSAA in hurdles three years in a row. Selected to the TVRA Girls basketball and volleyball all star game. Beating a first seeded team at WOSSAA badminton, despite being a fourth seed.

Memories of WESS: "I will remember the people and experiences that made my time great there. Not only friends, but also my coaches who have left a lifelong impact on my game, and myself. I will also remember the cows."

Looking ahead: Studying Medical Sciences, at Western University, with hopes of becoming a dermatologist. Play intramural sports.
