Athletes of the Week: Andrei Bucatel & Dominic Pokora
Andrei Bucatel Senior Boys Basketball
At the risk of hyperbole, Andrei Bucatel was a monster this past week vs perennial rival BCS, a man amongst boys. Dominating in all aspects of play inside the paint, he recorded a rare double-double with 24 points and 12 rebounds. Clearly in the zone, with neither the time nor the inclination to complain about calls or referees, Andrei played the best game of his Stanstead College career, helping to defeat a very strong squad with a hard-nosed, aggressive, big-man game. Now that he has raised the bar, it will be exciting to see what Andrei will do the rest of the season – the sky is the limit!
Dominic Pokora Bantam Hockey
Dominic Pokora is unanimously regarded as one of the top players in the league. Dominant at both ends of the rink, he was the hardest working defender last week in a 7-1 loss at Eaglebrook, and then recorded 5 goals and 2 assists in a 7-1 victory. However, he is a co-recipient of this week’s Athlete Of The Week because of his commitment to improving. Never satisfied, Dominic refuses to rest on his laurels and is consistently the hardest worker on every shif and in every practice. Dedicated, passionate and not afraid to have fun, congratulations to Dominic for this well-deserved award!
