Karen Oswald of Oak Park High School was captain of the Basketball, Hockey, Cross Country Running and Track & Field teams, and was selected as a Graduating All-Star in Basketball and Hockey. This 97.3% average student finished sixth in the Cross Country Provincials and won gold in the 800 m at the recent Milk Track & Field Provincial Championship. Karen also coaches two WMBA basketball teams and is the assistant track coach at the Junior High. She is a member of Student Council, Youth in Philanthropy group and helped to organize the grade 12 retreat and pep rallies at Oak Park. Karen was selected Valedictorian of her class, and has also received Hockey and Basketball scholarships. Karen states, “My favourite memories by far within sports have been made throughout high school. Since Grade 10, I have been involved with school sports, playing hockey, basketball, soccer, track & field and cross country; I have been named Captain of many teams and a member of the Athletic Committee. To me however, the titles mean very little in comparison to the amount I have learned, the experiences I have had and the people I have met throughout these sports. I have learned leadership qualities, the value of teamwork and I have developed great respect for my school, teammates, coaches and sport as a whole.”
