There were once again a number of outstanding performances by WCSSAA and D8 student-athletes last week. Here are six and yes, I still plan on getting this list up to 10 in the coming weeks.
Ljubo Stojkovic, Grand River: The Grade 12 striker scored back-to-back hat tricks as the defending WCSSAA senior boys soccer champions improved to 3-0 on the season. His three-goal games came in a 6-1 win over Forest Heights and a 6-0 win over Preston. Stojkovic led the league in scoring last year.
Aubrey Formica, Preston: The Grade 11 striker scored three times last week as the Panthers scored a pair of wins in the WCSSAA girls soccer league. The multi-sport athlete who also plays volleyball and basketball had two goals in a 5-1 win over Elmira and one in a 3-1 win over Galt.
Lacretia Antwi, Forest Heights: The Grade 10 student had a pair of strong outings as the Trojans opened the WCSSAA girls rugby league schedule with a pair of wins. She had one try in a 36-5 win over Grand River and added two in a 39-10 win over Huron Heights. An active member of the school community, she is involved in drama, student council and Journey. SHe was a member of the wrestling team and got herself to CWOSSA.
Kylie Bordeleau, Jacob Hespeler: The versatile Grade 12 player scored six goals in one game as the Hawks pounded the Elmira Lancers 11-3 in WCSSAA girls soccer play. Bordelaud, who also plays volleyball, scored once earlier in the week in a 3-1 win over Waterloo-Oxford.
Jordan Silva, Sir John A. Macdonald: The Grade 12 player had a pair of tries as the Highlanders routed the Southwood Sabres 56-8 in WCSSAA boys rugby league play. A second-team all-star in 2011, he was also a defensive standout for the SJAM senior boys football squad that captured the WCSSAA title this past fall.
Raven Schuett, St. Benedict: The Grade 12 midfielder had a pair of strong District 8 girls soccer league games, including a three-goal effort in a 3-1 win over Pere Rene. The team's co-captain has been with the squad for four years and also had a strong game in an 8-1 win over Rockway.
