Former Winnipeg Blue Bomber and current CFL on TSN analyst Milt Stegall returned to the city on Tuesday to present sport scholarships to deserving young athletes.
Stegall was at the Sport for Life Centre as Sport Manitoba awarded $25,000 in academic scholarships to 15 high school students, seven university students, and four Manitoba coaches.
The Milt Stegall Scholarships award one high school student with $1,000 and a post-secondary student with $2,000.
This year’s high school recipient was Chad Enns, while U of M Bison women’s volleyball player Taylor Pischke won in the post-secondary category. Pischke also picked up a Princess Royal Pan Am Scholarship, worth another $3,000. Curler Daniel Grant of the U of M was also awarded in the same category for $3,000.
The Coaching Manitoba Bursaries were handed out to Ryann Lewis (Brandon, gymnastics), Kerry Friesen (Steinbach, basketball), Alyssa Grant (basketball), and Taran Barrett (gymnastics).
The recipient of the Bud Tinsley Sport Leadership Scholarship of $500 was Eric Guy.
