We are used to seeing Isabella Brunoro and Kosta Adzic excel in the athletics world. This year is no different. Please see the XC Provincial write up on our two superstars here: https://www.burnabynow.com/sports/third-place-for-stm-s-stewart-barnett-1.24007745?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
These two are also our October Athletes of the month:
Female Athlete of October: Isabella Brunoro.
Isabella was a multi-sport athlete in the fall season, competing on the Cross country and swim teams respectively. She finished 2nd, 2nd, and 1st in exhibition cross country races during October. She followed that up with a 4th place finish at the Zone race leading her Sr Girls team to a District Championship, and a berth to the Provincials meet. On the same day she raced at the Swimming Zone meet and qualified in each of her individual events (100 free fly and 200 I.M.). Isabella is as dedicated to her academics as she is to her athletics. She embodies what it means to be a Student-Athlete. You will see more of Isabella on the track come springtime.
Provincial swimming results:
100 free – 7th
100 fly – 4th
200 I.M. – 5th
Male Athlete of October: Kosta Adzic.
Kosta also was a multi-sport athlete through the Fall season, competing on the Cross country, Sr boys Soccer and the Sr boys Volleyball teams. Kosta finished 2nd in two exhibition races and 2nd at the Zone championship to qualify for the Provincials where he finished 35th. Kosta was a key component to the Sr Boys Volleyball team, adding valuable depth and maturity to a young roster. He also managed the midfield on the soccer pitch, which, as any soccer player knows, is an incredibly important position. Kosta excels in the classroom and is looking to defend his academic athlete award again this year.
Coach of October: Ms. Der.
Ms. Der is a one of a kind coach! Dedicated to her craft and in it for no other reason than for her joy of the game and the development of her athletes. Ms Der took on the Jr and Sr girls Volleyball teams this fall. If that was not enough, she took a combined Jr/Sr team to Hawaii for a fantastic week of beach and indoor volleyball. Ms. Der works tirelessly and such an important part of the Mountain coaching staff!
