Hayley Cone ’02 attended Acadia University for two years and played university rugby. She quickly came to the realization that nothing was holding her interest academically and decided to come home and work for her father, a show jumper/equestrian in King.
“School was never really my thing,” Hayley confesses. “I didn’t care because I was an athlete.” She credits her time at CDS, and Mr. Sherman in particular, as her math teacher and rugby coach, for teaching her that being an athlete is not the only thing that will get you through life.
At 24, Hayley was in the process of relocating to British Columbia where she could play rugby and train year round. A frequent shopper at Lululemon in Newmarket, she was approached by the store manager about working there.
