HOCKEY bids an emotional farewell
Last Friday night prior to game 2 of their semifinal series, the Isles held a brief ceremony honouring the players moving after this season. Six seniors were recognized, all 3 year players who were part of the first recruiting class of Coach Noémie Marin. Kiana Drcar, Cassidy Peck, Sara Levesque, Juliana Classen, Annabel Faubert and Hailey Burns will further their education whether it be in U-Sports or NCAA schools. We wish them all the best.
As for the game the Isles came up on the short end of a 6-2 score putting an end to their season. Emma Piers and Laurie Hachez were our two scorers.

 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.
