Stanstead College is proud to recognize Matthew Liddell-Grainger from the squash team as this week’s Athlete Of The Week. At this past Sunday’s provincial tournament.
Matthew not only earned a bronze medal for his stellar performance, but in true Spartan fashion he demonstrated humility and sportsmanship in the face of a superior opponent.
Throughout the tournament, despite the eventual champion being an 11-year old prodigy, “LG” left his ego at the door and showed both admiration and respect for his rival, in the process establishing a camaraderie rarely seen amongst competitors.
Skilled, humble and a true lover of squash with a bright future (he’s only in Grade 9!), Matthew Liddell-Grainger of Hemmingford, Que. earns this week’s AOTW – congratulations!
