The Bishop’s Gaiters athletes were on centre stage during the annual Athletic Awards Night on Thursday night.
The annual awards night served as a celebration of athletic and academic success over the 2022-23 season for all the student-athletes, coaches and staff members who worked hard all year long.
For the first time, the celebration was hosted at Centennial Theatre on campus to allow for the show to be webcasted live for friends, family and alumni to watch and be a part of a special night.
Kyle Corrigan of the Bishop’s Gaiters men’s rugby team and Amaiquen Sicilian of the women’s basketball team headlined the night, taking home top honours as the Athletes of the Year.
Despite a season ending injury, Corrigan had an impressive season, earning a first-team RSEQ All-Star selection. He scored 11 tries, which led the league in 2022. He ranked first on the team in metres carried, metres per carry and tries per carry.
