This year we were so glad to be back to celebrating our athletes in person!
Last night we celebrated our student athletes at Nanaimo Christian School's annual Athletics Awards night. We want to first thank all those who were able to attend as we celebrated the athletes after two long years of our sports looking very different from the past.
Congratulations to our award Winners

We want to say a huge THANK YOU to all coaches and teacher sponsors who continually give of their time to coach and support our athletes. It is no small commitment to give your time but the time given makes such a huge difference and we appreciate all that you have done and continue to do! Also thanks to the Culinary Arts 11/12 class for making all the delicious desserts for the evening.
We want to also celebrate those students who are graduating this year but have made an impact through athletics at our school. We will miss them on our teams next year but wish them well as they start the next chapter of their lives. We hope that they are able to continue the sports that they love through playing at the next level, finding intramural leagues, coaching the next generation and possibly even refereeing. Congratulations to: Kalea Dupont, Natalie Faganello, Keoh Holder, David Hurley, Jack Hurley, Kelly Jenkins, Keziah Kovacs, Cole Libbus, Maggie McKnight, Charis Moody, Jonah Regner, Isaiah Russel, Nate Schmidt, Evan Swanstrom and Austin Wilson.
While we still started this season by having many restrictions and no spectators, we are looking forward to next year allowing all spectators back to celebrate our athletes and encourage them from the sidelines!
Please contact Bre Quist (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to be involved in any sports volunteering next year. We are looking for coaches, scorekeepers or help on our Sr Girls Basketball Provincial Tournament committee.
