Andy Bowers

Andy Bowers, PETWithin the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board, there are a tremendous amount of influential athletic leaders whom we wish to recognize. These exceptional staff members contribute to a competitive, vibrant, safe, and fair athletic experience for our student-athletes.  


From St. Peter’s Catholic Secondary School in Barrie, we recognize the outstanding contributions of Andy Bowers.  Andy has been mentoring student-athletes in our SMCDSB community for twenty years and was recently nominated by his colleagues who shared:


“Andy’s calm, collected approach to coaching and his knowledge of the sports that he coaches, combined with his coaching strategies have gained him the respect of many student athletes over the years. Most recently, Andy has coached Volleyball and Tennis, often coaching both Junior and Senior teams in the same season.  Much of Andy’s success has landed him at OFSAA Championships, including several for Tennis, with a highlight of bringing home an OFSAA Silver Medal for Boys Doubles in 2017-18 with student-athletes Ryan and Chris Kluszczynski. Andy has also taken the Panther “AAA” Boys Volleyball squad to OFSAA 4 times in the last 6 years.  This week, the team returned from the OFSAA Championship in Toronto with a Bronze Medal. Thank you Andy for all you do for your students and your athletes.”


We would like to thank Andy for his remarkable athletic leadership and commitment to Catholic education!
