Islanders recognize their best and brightest from the 2017-2018 season.

The 44th annual awards night was held yesterday as the Isles highlighted the accomplishments of the past RSEQ season. Our 18 teams were each recognized and their MVPs all received a bursary from our student union in the amount of $150.

The Jeff Mills Memorial Cup winner is Kwame Osei from the football team. This is the first recipient from football since 2004. Kwame was named Team Captain in 2016 in his 2nd season and was the team’s unquestioned leader. His approach, his passion & personality allowed him to influence his peers and re-enforced the staff & team values.

Our top student athlete with a graduating average of over 97% in commerce is Kelly Corsi, who played 2 seasons of basketball and 1 season of flag football over 5 semesters.

Top rookies were Audrey Gervais from the hockey team and Darius Simmons from the football team. Outstanding performances went to Annie Pollender from the basketball team and Kevin Bertrand from swim team.

Former chairman of Sports & Recreation Glenn Ruiter will also be doubly honoured in the coming months as he will inducted into the John Abbot Hall of Distinction as well as the CCAA Hall of Fame. For more info the CCAA induction visit:



 The purpose of John Abbott College is to provide students with educational opportunities which will permit them to achieve, as individuals, their highest potential. This includes not only the acquisition of academic and professional skills but also the pursuit of personal growth and development.

Since its beginning, the College has actively supported participation in sports endeavors as one of the important avenues in the growth of the individual and his/her well being. The specific aim of the Sports and Recreation Department is to implement programs which will meet student needs and interests in the areas of recreation, intramural, and inter-collegiate activities. The department also provides for student involvement in the development and organization of these activities.

The dedication of the athletes, the quality of coaching and the professional approach of staff members responsible for the sports programs have all combined to thrust the College to the forefront in terms of overall excellence and achievement, both at the provincial and national levels. We are justly proud of our accomplishments and the following pages are a tribute to those John Abbott people associated with our effort in the area of athletics.
