A Grade 12 student, Georgie Antle has excelled in sports throughout high school and started with the Langley Mustangs Track and Field Club in Grade 7.

She advanced to the high performance Gold Group and holds one of the Mustangs’ top ten awards for discus. A member of the Poppy track and field team, she has also played volleyball and basketball.

Sports have given her the opportunity to travel, attend training camps, and receive numerous awards.

Antle has passed her expertise on by coaching and score-keeping for others. As well, she volunteers at car shows, games, and tournaments.

An honour roll student since Grade 8, she is also an outstanding musician and photographer, and has taken on leadership roles backstage in her school’s musical theatre productions.

Antle represented D.W. Poppy at the Arts and Culture Week of Encounters Canada last year.
