Congratulations to our February athletes of the month Kate and Aiden

Kate is a true leader at this school every day, but last month she led our Senior AAA women’s basketball team to their first Final 12 appearance in 15 years. In an absolute must-win Sectional Championships semi-final match, the team were down 21 points in the first half and Kate led the march to victory by scoring 16 of her 19 second half points, a team record. With 6 assists and 5 rebounds, the team pulled off a spectacular buzzer victory and headed to TD Station. After the Final 12, she represented the North-East Conference at the All Star Game held at Rothesay High School.

This athlete is a multi-sport athlete for SSHS. Golf, football, hockey and volleyball keep this young man active in Spartans Green and White. This young man has the potential to change any game he plays in. His athletic abilities make him a threat on the field and the ice. Whether it’s a sudden speed rush to beat a defender, or a quick shot, this player gets their opponent’s attention. He plays like a power striker should, with heavy hitting, soft hands and the ability to find the bottom of the net. He currently leads the team in points and penalty minutes. He plays for the love of the game and is a great ambassador for the Spartans.

Congratulations to both athletes and thank you to the coaches and staff for taking the time to recognize these outstanding students.

Congratulations to Quinn Cabay and Taylor Mashon for being our Athlete of the Month Winners for the Month of January!

Our deadline for February Athlete of the Month nominations is March 15th and will continue to be the 15th every month going forward.
