A New Chapter For Renae Nevills
As one chapter ends, another begins.
For Thamesville’s Renae Nevills, she’s closing out on her USports hockey career at Western University, and beginning the next step in her education and career.
“This past year has been a whirlwind. Last year I decided to come back to Western University and play out my fifth and final year of eligibility for the Western Women’s Hockey Team, only for my senior season, along with many of my fellow senior varsity athletes seasons, to be taken from us so abruptly due to the pandemic,” Nevills wrote on social media.
“This was probably the saddest way for my hockey career to end. I will always be left wanting more from this sport with never getting that final workout, final practice, final game, final road trip with my teammates, or just that final piece of closure. I don’t think any senior would have thought that their 2019-2020 season would have been their last. If someone told me February 15th, 2020 would have been my final hockey game I would have soaked it in just a little bit more when that final buzzer sounded.”
Nevills finished her Western hockey career as team captain.
And now that one chapter has closed, the Kinesiology graduate is moving on to a new chapter.
“As much as this past year has taken from me, it has also just given me the rest of my life, my dream career, Chiropractic,” said Nevills, who has been accepted to the Doctor of Chiropractic Program at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto.
“This has always been a dream of mine since high school, however hasn’t been put into action until this past year, and now this dream is finally becoming reality.”
