Tiger grads moving on
Megan Willox - March 12, 2013
This year the Dalhousie Tigers are saying goodbye to 36 graduating athletes. Some of these Tigers are moving up to the next level in their sport, while others are continuing their education and starting their careers.
Fifth-year hockey defenseman Jacob Johnston graduated with a bachelor of commerce this year. His original plan was to get a job in finance, which was his major, but that all changed when he was offered a professional hockey contract. Now he’s moving to Texas to play in the American Hockey League, so for now his finance aspirations are on hold.
Religion major and women’s soccer goal keeper Taryn McKenna just can’t stay away from Dalhousie. McKenna has decided to come back for one more semestre to add a degree in music to her resumé. Once she graduates McKenna plans to work and travel before perusing an education degree in 2014. As for her soccer plans, she will not be returning to the Tigers due to a shoulder injury she sustained during the season, but hopes she will be able to play competitively again soon.
Fifth-year track and field athlete and volleyball player Rob McCulloch plans on sticking with the Tigers program even though he can’t compete. He plans to volunteer with the Dalhousie track and field team as well as the Halifast track club next year while he’s working, before he plans to further his education in a graduate program in the fall of 2014.
After completing her masters in Kinesiology, swimmer Audrey Prayal-Brown is not finished furthering her education. Prayal-Brown is ready to leave her hometown and is hoping to get into medical school, and with a couple of years of eligibility left she hopes to compete in the pool again if her sure to be busy schedule allows it.
