Mountaineer Athletics recognize academic performance

The Mohawk Athleitics & Recreation Department recognized student athletes for their academic achievements this week.

Lauren Snider of the Women's Basketball team has been named the recipient of the 2020-2021 Mountaineer Athlete Scholar Award. Snider, a Brantford native, completed her second and final year of the Community and Justice Services program where she excelled over the past year with a 98 percent average.

The Women's Volleyball team was recognized with the 2020-2021 Team Scholastic Award.

The Mountaineers have announced the 2020-2021 All-Academic athletes which is highlighted by 40 student-athletes. With no competition over the past year, there has been extra emphasis on academic excellence and the Mountaineers were up for the challenge with over 60 per cent of this year's athletes receiving All-Academic honours.

And the Barb Moore Spirit of Athletics award was presented to Brayden Swire, who interned with our athletic department throughout the year.


 Congratulations to all the studious athletes honoured.
