May Athletes of the Month

Oct 23, 2020
Congratulation to Matteo Panunte and Chloe DeRoy!

May Athletes of the month

After a busy first half of the school year, Matteo Panunte continued the trend in the second half of the school year with his involvement in ultimate, sledge hockey and soccer.  He had a very successful first season in Ultimate.  He was able to step into a very difficult position on defense very successfully including scoring a game winning point by intercepting a throw in the other team’s end zone against AN Myer.   He had a strong showing in soccer where he controlled the attack of the Bears through his position a defensive fullback.  Matteo was able to set up many offensive threats with his ability to find the seams.  His busy semester also included badminton.

Chloe is heading to University of British Columbia next year to study psychology/sociology    She has been a consistent member of the ultimate team in her four years of high school.  She has consistently performed well on the team in both offense and defense.  Chloe also played girls hockey and was a great senior leader to many of the girls. In soccer, she had good strong ball control and an effective passer. She demonstrated great effort offensively and defensively from her centre midfield position.  Her love of team sports also included her being a member of the Bears’ softball team where she was able to display her great attitude.
