McNairn, Jarvis, Hartle, top athletes at Seaway High


Described as dedicated all-round athletes, AJ Jarvis, Casey McNairn and Jessica Hartle were named Seaway District High School’s Outstanding Athletes last Tuesday, June 17.

The three, all competitors in a number of sports, were described as hard working, dedicated team players, inspirations to their teammates and great ambassadors for Seaway.

A grade 11 student, Jarvis who was named the Outstanding Male Athlete has competed in a number of sports since he started high school. This year saw him on the volleyball and basketball courts and the soccer pitch. In addition to the Top Male Athlete award he was named the senior boys most valuable soccer player.

 Unfortunately, due to his high level of play on the ice (AJ played Junior A hockey level 2 hockey this past season with the Brockville Braves and some OHA hockey with the Kingston Frontenacs), he was ineligible to play for the Seaway Spartan boys hockey team. His presence was missed and he was however, among their biggest fans.

“AJ is an intense player and team mate,” said Mark Lewis who made the presentations. “He challenges himself and his team mates to be their very best always, including at practise.”

Named as Outstanding Female Athlete was grade 12 student Casey McNairn. Casey too is an all round athlete and throughout her high school career she has played a number of sports. This year Casey was co-captain of  Seaway’s senior girls’ EOSSAA championship volleyball team with Sophia Currier. She and Currier were also named this year’s senior girls volleyball MVPs.

Casey, who plays defence, received a certificate for her dedication from hockey coach Carrie Gilmour and shared the senior girls badminton MVP award with Danielle Whitteker.

Along with her talent and determination, Casey was described by Lewis as a “great team player, willing to give everything for the team to succeed.”

It is a truly huge honour for a student at Seaway to be named the recipient of the Irv Francis Award for excellence in Athletics, Academics and Sportsmanship, and so the fact that Jessica Hartle won the Irv Francis for a consecutive year, speaks for her abilities.

This year Jessica played volleyball, basketball, soccer and badminton. “Over her career at Seaway, Jessica was a true asset to the athletic department,” said Lewis. “She always helped out when needed and was a fierce competitor on the field. Jessica is a true example of a student-athlete who has served Seaway proudly.”
