Queen Margaret's School's Alice Young is one of 16 talented athletes and community leaders recognized with a Coast Capital Savings athlete bursary following the closing ceremonies of the B.C. Summer Games in Nanaimo.

Young rode in the equestrian events at the Games, earning a silver medal as part of the Zone 6 contingent in the team competition.

"I feel so lucky to have spent a week at the B.C. Summer Games,'' said Young. "Congratulations to all my fellow Zone 6 equestrian athletes on winning silver and to everyone who took home individual medals. As always, thank you to Cheryl Keith for your amazing coaching.''

Young indicated she will put her bursary money toward tuition at St. Andrew's University in Scotland this September.

The bursary recipients were chosen from more than 350 applicants for their significant achievements in sport and education but mostly for their leadership contributions to schools, community or sport associations.
