January 11, 2021- Halifax, NS - Cleve’s Source for Sports Sportsmanship Award Recipient Announced 

Peyton Ballem is the Cleve's Source for Sport Sportsmanship Award winner for January 2021. In her first season of year-round swimming with the Halifax Trojan Aquatic Club (HTAC), the nine-year-old displayed determination in the face of adversity. Regardless of challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, Peyton managed to excel, swim personal bests, and actively go out of her way to lift up and congratulate teammates on their success’.  

“The effect that Peyton's attitude and actions have had on the atmosphere of the team would have been notable during a normal season: however, given the continued circumstances of the pandemic, it is truly remarkable.” -Bette El-Hawary, executive director, Swim Nova Scotia
