Evan Gass demonstrates in many ways what ultimate values and encompasses.
Not only is he an imposing natural athlete, but he embodies what this unique sport is, at its core, really about, i.e. teamwork, competitiveness and sportsmanship. The Grade 11 student from Cookshire, Que. consistently brings all three of these elements to both practices and games. He always plays with enthusiasm, he passes to everyone equally, and he has learned that defence and offence are equally exhausting – although he never seems to get tired! His athleticism and height make him an impenetrable wall on defence, and with how steep his learning curve has been it won’t be long before his passing and offence are equally impressive. Congratulations, Evan, for being named the first Athlete of the Week EVER in ultimate!
Honourable Mention Ariela Boltvinik (senior girls soccer) for being, by far, the hardest working player on the field, and for scoring her first goal ever against BCS
