MONTREAL – Mariam Sylla, Cedric McNicoll and Katia Clement-Heydra highlighted a group of 17 athletes from McGill University to receive  bursaries doled out Tuesday at the 29th annual Quebec Foundation for Athletic Excellence awards gala, held at the Sheraton Laval.
 
A total 86 athletic scholarships — valued at a combined $218, 750 — were issued, including 49 recruitment bursaries.
 
Of the 37 awards presented in the merit categories of academic and athletic excellence, as well as leadership, McGill led all Quebec universities with 10 recipients. The Montreal Carabins were next in line with eight, followed by Sherbrooke (7), Laval (6), Concordia (3), Bishop’s (1), UQTR (1) and UQAM (1).

McNicoll, from Boucherville, Que., and Clement-Heydra of St. Bruno, Que., both hockey players, were recognized as the male and female athletes of the year, respectively, in the category of team sports.
 
The McGill hockey Martlets, crowned as CIS national champions last spring, were named women’s team of the year.
