Hermann and Fomenko earn top honours

The St. Lawrence College Brockville Athletics Department celebrated the 2010-11 season at the Athletic Banquet Thursday, Mar. 31 at the Quality Inn Royal Brock Hotel in Brockville. Earning the evenings top honours were Kian Herrmann and Leanne Fomenko, both first-year students and multi-sport athletes, who were named Male and Female Athlete of the Year, respectively.

Herrmann excelled in three sports for SLC Brockville, badminton, indoor soccer and hockey this season, and will graduate from the Pre-Service Firefighter program in May. The gifted athlete has been a true competitor for the Schooners in the trio of sports with pure athleticism and a fierce intensity, guiding strong performances in each contest. Herrmann captained the indoor soccer team to its first win at the OCAA East Regional since 2006 and drove the Riverdogs to No. 18 in the Ontario Colleges Committee on Campus Recreation (OCCCR) hockey Power Ratings.

Fomenko represented the Schooners in cross country and indoor soccer and will also graduate from the Pre-Service Firefighter program, one of only three women in the program. With a raw determination, Fomenko developed a strong stamina during the cross country season and was the only female to don the Schooner singlet at all four competitions. On the soccer pitch, Fomenko’s versatility and knack for scoring will be hard to replace.

After dishing out the athlete of the year awards at the end of the night, Tri-Campus Athletic Director Brad Greenwood called third-year cross country runner Dawn Martin to the stage to recognize her outstanding contribution to SLC Athletics. Martin has represented SLC Brockville at the highest level for the past three years. She blew away the competition to earn the gold medal at the 2008 OCAA Championships, before placing third at the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA) Championship the same year. Martin returned to OCAA stage the following season after battling injury and placed fourth at the OCAA Championship, before finishing 11th at the Championship. She wrapped up her career at SLC Brockville with a 13th place finish at the 2011 CCAA Championship and picked up a gold conference team medal, with OCAA runners topping the field.

Billy Rozell, a member of the hockey and indoor soccer teams at SLC Brockville took home the Tyler Forkes Fair Play Award. Rozell also competed for the SLC Kingston rugby team during the fall and displayed a strong commitment to his sports and in the classroom attaining a 3.5 grade point average (GPA). Galen Slingerland received the Schooners Athletic and Academic Achievement Award. Slingerland maintained a 3.8 GPA while competing on the golf, cross country and indoor soccer teams.

Other major award winners of the evening included Amber Windsor, Sadie Bowen and Chris Chisamore, all members of the Student Administrative Council, earned the SLC Brockville Athletics Contribution Award.

SLC Brockville wins 'C' consolation final at Georgian Invitational

BARRIE, Ont. (Mar. 11, 2011) – The St. Lawrence College Brockville men’s hockey team had its best showing of the season coming away with the ‘C’ Consolation Championship in hand, to take the bronze at the Georgian Invitational Thursday, Mar. 10 in Barrie. The Riverdogs dropped opening matches to Georgian Orillia and Seneca, but after getting regulated to the ‘C’ bracket, the Riverdogs picked up two wins to earn a 2-2 overall record.

The opening two contests proved to be tough for SLC Brockville starting with Georgian Orillia, who skated past the Riverdogs 4-1. SLC Brockville’s only goal came from David Turnbull. In the second game, the Riverdogs were blanked 4-0 by Seneca, sending the Riverdogs to the ‘C’ semi-final.

The Riverdogs showed some strength on the attack in the semi-final against Georgian Owen Sound playing to a 6-3 victory over the Grizzlies. Dylan Dekleer led the charge with his first four-goal game of the year, while Chris Love and Conor Bethelet added a goal each to push the Riverdogs into the final.

Up against Mohawk for the bronze, SLC Brockville was carried by goaltender James Proctor, who as head coach Owen Whiting described ‘stood on his head,’ to keep the Riverdogs in the contest. Proctor’s performance was boosted by a strong offence that netted another six goals to take a 6-4 victory over the Mountaineers. Berthelet scored two goals and added two assists in the win. Love scored his second of the day and was followed by Billy Rozell and Kyle Vanwart. Dekleer added his fifth goal of the tournament on an empty netter in the final minute of play to give the Riverdogs a bit of breathing room as time expired.

The 2-2 record caps off a season of real development for the Riverdogs. After starting the season winless in two tournaments, SLC Brockville earned five wins in the final three tournaments and was carried by some great goaltending.
