The McDonell Award is named in honor of former Regina Dominican Administrator Patricia “Pat” McDonell who retired in June 2019. She believed that academic and athletic excellence should go hand in hand.  Pat was a mentor, a leader, and a friend to everyone in the Regina Dominican community.  This award celebrates her legacy and will be given each sports season – fall, winter and spring to the qualifying team.
