50 Years of Sport PEI Awards – Kathryn MacDougall
The 2023 Sport PEI awards will be our 50th edition! To celebrate this milestone, we wanted to take a look back at those who have received the Lieutenant Governor’s award as PEI’s top athlete of the year.
Kathryn MacDougall – 1985, 1986 – Field Hockey
Kathryn MacDougall won the Lieutenant Governor’s award in 1985 and 1986 for her accomplishments in the sport of field hockey. In 1985, Kathryn would lead her team, the UNB Red Sticks, to a national silver medal. She would earn a league all star award as well as league MVP. She would also receive one of her several merit awards, which recognized students with outstanding athletic and academic accomplishments. She was also recognized as an all star at nationals in 1985, as well as an CIAU All Canadian. While on the Canadian National team in 1986, Kathryn would be the first, and still only, Islander to play at the world famous Wembley Stadium in London. That year she would also help team Canada win bronze at the World Cup in Holland.
