Shanay Sangha, a third-year forward with the Kwantlen Eagles women’s soccer team, was named Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s 2011-2012 President’s Outstanding Female Athlete.

The announcement was made at the Kwantlen Eagles Athletic Awards Banquet last week at the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre in Langley

The award was one of many achieved by the Business Administration – Human Resources student from Richmond. She finished the PacWest league schedule as the top scorer with 11 goals in 12 games, and was also named the PacWest’s Women’s Soccer Player of the Year and first-team all-star, as well as being named a Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) All-Canadian and CCAA Athlete of the Month. Sangha was also recognized as her team’s Most Valuable Player.

Fourth-year badminton athlete and Business Management student Willis Kwee of Richmond earned the President’s Outstanding Male Athlete award, with a silver medal in PacWest provincial and CCAA national competition, both in men’s doubles.

Two graduating Eagles athletes from their soccer teams, fifth-year Marissa Dionne of the women’s team and fourth-year player Thomas Johnston of the men’s team. Delta native Dionne played in four PacWest provincial championship tournaments, winning gold in 2009 and 2010, earning a PacWest second-team all-star in 2009.

Thomas, from Surrey, has been awarded the PacWest Academic Excellence Award three consecutive times as well as the CCAA National Scholar Award twice. Both achievements require honors standing.
