Alex Doornbosch of Great Lakes Secondary and J.J. Fogarty of St. Patrick’s are this year’s winner of the Stefanko Award, presented annually for outstanding achievement in athletics, academics and extra-curricular activities.

Doornbosch has been named captain of all her school basketball and volleyball teams and is a three-time Lambton-Kent high school champion.

She has maintained honours marks in her courses while contributing to sports programming and supporting her peers, the Lambton Kent District School Board said.

Fogarty won the 800 and 1,500 metre senior boys’ titles at the Southwestern Ontario track and field championship this year, and competed in both events at the all-Ontario finals.

He was also captain of the St. Pat’s hockey team.

After high school, Doornbosch plans to study recreation therapy, while Fogarty plans to study engineering and run track at Western University.
