Celeste Noble, a co-founder of Guelph University’s Team Unbreakable program was honored by her school. The Nordic skiing star received the W.F. Mitchell Sportswoman of the Year, awarded to graduating athletes who excel in their sport and demonstrate leadership and involvement in athletics at the University.
In her nomination, the judges said, “Noble is the true definition of a well-rounded student athlete. She overcame health issues in her early varsity years to emerge as the clear leader on the Gryphon Nordic team, showcasing her talent, work ethic, and ability to connect with people. The women’s captain, and member of the Leadership Academy, had an incredible season in her final year of competition, leading the Gryphons to a team silver medal at the OUA Championships.
She is a prominent figure on campus having co-founded Team Unbreakable – Guelph Chapter, a group dedicated to improving student mental health through running and fostering new friendships. Noble also played in or captained more than 10 intramural teams, all while meeting the rigorous demands as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine student.”
