It was Corrigan’s most dominant season to date with 51 points.  

Alysha’s accolades continued capturing a silver medal with the PEI Abbies at the Atlantic championships. She went on to score two try’s and kicked three conversions to lead the Nova Scotia Keltics to a silver medal at the Canadian Rugby Championships. 

Topping it all off, Alysha was then selected as one of the top 31 players in the country to attend the most recent Rugby Canada Fall International tour.   

An AUS All Star and U Sports 2nd team All Canadian Alysha Corrigan continues to improve her game year in and year out. 

 

Bailey Smith – Track & Field, UPEI

In 2018, the UPEI track program was just in its second year of operations when sophomore Bailey Smith captured her second AUS 60m championship. 

Bailey’s season began with a solid 60m performance in Moncton and Oromocto.  It was at the AUS Championships, however, where Bailey smashed her personal best to win gold in the 60m event.  The accomplishment was recognized by the AUS when she was named the 2018 Track Athlete of the Year. 

At the U Sports Championships in Windsor, ON, Bailey tied her personal best, placing her seventh in the country and capping off a remarkable season. 

 

Hannah Taylor - Wresting, Brock University

Hannah Taylor is no stranger to standing on the podium, in 2018 the Brock University Badger finished in the top three in every U Sport event she entered. Making this achievement even more impressive is the fact that Hannah competes in the 57kg class, one of the most competitive divisions.   

Breaking down her medal count, Hannah won gold in Ryerson and Guelph, silver at Simon Fraser and Brock, and finally bronze at York.  At the Ontario University Association Championship not only did she win gold, but Hannah was named the Most Outstanding Female Wrestler. 

To cap off her season, Hannah won the U Sport National Championship for the second year in a row. Not looking back, Hannah’s start to the 2018/19 season has yet to see her off the podium.
