12 Graduating SMUS Athletes Moving on to Play at Post-Secondary Level

It’s been a banner year so far for SMUS athletes – and the year isn’t over! Since the school year started, SMUS has taken home two Provincial, six Island and nine City titles – with a number of high school sports still yet to finish their seasons.

With so much success on the fields and courts, we’re proud to say that a dozen Grade 12 students are moving on to play high-level sports for universities and colleges in Canada, the United States and overseas next year.

Here’s a breakdown of where our student athletes are headed in the fall:

Acacia Welsford, rowing – University of Portland (Portland, Oregon)

Brian Im, soccer – University of the Pacific (Stockton, California)

Callum Montgomery, soccer – University of North Carolina at Charlotte (Charlotte, North Carolina)

Claudia Wheler, soccer – Queen’s University (Toronto)

Graeme Hyde-Lay, basketball – University of Victoria (Victoria)

Hedvika Suchankova, squash – Dickinson College (Carlisle, Pennsylvania)

Congratulations to all of our athletes on an exceptional year in sports, and best of luck to those students who are off to play on a larger stage. Vivat!
