The Bishops Gaiter’s cleaned up at the awards banquet on Thursday night winning four of five individual player awards.

Mike Andrews was the marquee player for Bishops all season long and he was rewarded with both MVP and Defensive Player of the year awards.

The 6’10 Andrews led the Gaiters to a 10-6 record good for second spot in the RSEQ. His 15.3 points and 6.4 rebounds per game have led the Purple and white to the conference finals.

Joining Andrews as Gaiters award recipients are Rod Gilpin and Tim Hunter who took home coach of the year, and community involvement award distinctions.

Karl Demers-Belanger was the only none Bishops player to take home an individual award Thursday evening. The first year Laval guard averaged 11.7 points per game, becoming one of the few bright spots in what was a forgettable season for the Rouge ET Or.
