On June 13, Katy Rozanova, grade 11 student at Port Credit Secondary School, will be honoured at the 44th annual Mississauga Sports Dinner as the City's Female High School Athlete of the Year.
Rozanova's involvement in sports began at an early age when her parents would take her to parks to play sports with friends and family. Her parents encouraged her to try out gymnastics and canoeing to help improve her asthma, and soon after she tried karate and cheerleading. Rozanova says it was her first gym teacher at Dixie Public School who encouraged her to try out for her school's sports teams.
Currently at her school, Rozanova participates in a variety of sports, including cross country, volleyball, badminton, tennis, and track and field. Her athletic ability has earned her multiple awards from ROPSSAA, OFSAA and the MVP title.
Sports aren't her only extracurricular activities. Rozanova also spends time as a member at her school's Art Council and is one of six executives on the Student Advisory Council. She is also currently working as a Youth Racing Program Coach for a canoe club outside of school.
The Mississauga Sports Council hosts its annual Mississauga Sports Dinner to honour remarkable athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers for their exceptional achievements and contributions to sport.
