Athletics at Stanstead College

Her parents were a little alarmed when, three years ago, Tania told them she planned on playing junior rugby at her new school, Stanstead College.

An odd choice for an 11-year-old girl, perhaps. "But I always liked contact sports," she explains. And today, in her room at the college, she proudly displays the big "S"-the school junior colours-she won this season. "She's a very good player," says her coach (and science and math teacher) Kristen Byrnes. "She always tries her best, and does helpful things without being asked, like helping out the other girls."

Tania, French-speaking and from Sherbrooke, has done well in other respects. "I hesitated about coming to Stanstead because I didn't speak much English," she says. "But everyone was very nice and the teachers really tried to help me."

Now, fluent in English, she can't wait for next year-when she will be on the senior girls' rugby team.
