2022 Sport PEI Scholarship Recipients Announced
Sport PEI is pleased to award four student-athlete scholarships valued at $1000. The criteria used to select the recipients includes achievements in sport, the classroom and their communities. This year, the scholarships were made possible thanks to sponsorships from Sport Centre Physiotherapy, Connolly Group, AVIS Car Rental, and DALMAC.
The 2022 Sport PEI Scholarships winners are Zackary Blood (Three Oaks Senior High), Andrea Caron (Three Oaks Senior High), Molly Doyle (Charlottetown Rural), and Sydney Lawlor (Charlottetown Rural). Each of the student-athletes have excelled in the classroom, their sport and their community.
Zackary Blood, a Three Oaks Senior High graduate, will be studying Kinesiology at Dalhousie University with intentions to become a chiropractor.
Zackary is a multi-sport athlete who stars in both Football and Basketball. Zackary was a finalist for Football PEI’s player of the year, the 2022 provincial MVP for PEISAA’s AAA men’s basketball, and has won three consecutive championships in both sports. At the end of the summer, Zackary will attend the 2022 Canada Games with the men’s basketball team and will join the Dalhousie University football program in the fall. Making the most of his time in sport and in the classroom, Zackary has also made time to give back to the sport community, through coaching football, basketball, and flag football.
Andrea Caron, a Three Oaks Senior High graduate, will be pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree, Majoring in Mathematics next year at Mount Allison University, with future plans to become a teacher.
Andrea has excelled in multiple sports, most notably Ringette, Softball, and Volleyball. Andrea was the MVP, top pitcher, and gold medalist at the 2021 Eastern Canadian Softball Championships, and a silver medalist at the 2020 Atlantic Ringette championships and the 2019 Canadian Ringette Championships. Andrea will represent Team PEI at the Canada Games this summer in softball and is hoping to also compete at the 2023 games in Ringette. Andrea is just as impressive in the classroom as she is in sport, and still finds time to volunteer with the Summerside Ringette Association, TOSH athletic council President, TOSH Graduating Class Secretary, and the TOSH Relay for Life committee.
Molly Doyle, a Charlottetown Rural High graduate, will be pursuing a Bachelor of Medical Sciences degree this fall at Dalhousie University, with plans to pursue her PhD in the future.
Molly is a star field hockey player while also competing in ice hockey, badminton, and golf. After winning provincial titles in field hockey, Molly was also honoured as the provincial MVP this past season. Molly has been a leader on and off the pitch often named as captain for her field hockey and ice hockey team, we know Molly will do great things when she makes the move to Halifax this fall to join the Dalhousie Field Hockey team. Along with competing in sport and excelling in the classroom, Molly also volunteers as a hockey coach, at the QEH, as Vice-President of Charlottetown Rural Student Council, and at the school’s breakfast program.
Sydney Lawlor, a Charlottetown Rural High graduate, will be studying Biology at UPEI this fall and plans to pursue a career in dentistry, while playing for the UPEI Women’s Basketball team.
A multisport athlete, Sydney has excelled in basketball, volleyball, and softball at Charlottetown Rural and was named Provincials MVP in both basketball and volleyball. Sydney will suit up for the 2022 Canada Games team, this summer in Niagara, before making the transition to UPEI. On and off the court Sydney is a leader and has spent many hours training and studying. Sydney also displays leadership in her volunteer efforts, most notably during her time spent at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital since 9th grade.
Congratulations to the four recipients of the 2022 Sport PEI Scholarships, we know they will all do great things and the future is very bright for each one of these student-athletes!
