When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?


What was the last book you read?

“Zoo” by James Patterson

What is your favourite Lancer moment?

My favorite Lancer moment would definitely be winning that national championship in my first year. During the final minutes of the game I don’t think I even sat on the bench, just crouched down in front of it because I couldn’t sit still. Defeating Regina on their home court was the best feeling. Only thing that could beat it would be winning nationals at our house.

What is your greatest accomplishment?

Receiving the Royal Arcanum award.

Who is your hero and why?

My hero is my Aunt Jan. She just recently beat breast cancer but meeting her during her battle you would have had no clue. She puts everyone before herself and always has a smile on her face no matter what. Every time I look into the crowd she is there, supporting myself and our team. She is currently doing CrossFit training to get back into shape and works her butt off doing it. In short, she is the strongest, most genuine person I have ever met and I hope I can be half the person she is.

What does being a Lancer mean to you?

Being a Lancer athlete means the world to me. Playing for a team that I grew up watching, in front of my teachers, coaches, family, friends and everyone that made me who I am today is the greatest feeling. The entire city is behind our team and I wouldn't change a thing.
