Congratulations to Carly Steer and Brett Sontag, OFSAA Character Athletes

Mar 27, 2012 | Uncategorized

Congratulations to Carly Steer from Holy Names Catholic High School and Brett Sontag from Gravenhurst High School, chosen to be the female and male recipients of the OFSAA Character Athlete Award this winter.

Carly Steer was nominated by her coach Jackie Lopez, who says Carly has accomplished so much athletically at such a young age, and is one of the most hardworking and dedicated students she has taught.

Carly has played on her school’s senior girls’ basketball team since Grade 9, as well as the volleyball team and track events. She has coached the Windsor Valients basketball house league, helped out at her local elementary school, and volunteered in various other capacities in her community.

“Carly is a quiet leader who always looks to help others in any way possible,” said Carly’s coach Jackie. “She is extremely humble and is a wonderful example of out school motto: allis non sibi, for others not oneself.”

OFSAA’s male character athlete Brett Sontag was nominated by his coach Stephanie Walker, who says Brett always shows respect for other athletes, and praises fellow competitors for a good play, whether they are on his team or not. At his school, Brett participates in golf, curling, volleyball, hockey, badminton, and track and field.

He is also a member of his school’s performing arts club, the Gravenhurst HS “Star-Project”, and vounteers to help coach the girls’ hockey team.

“Brett it easy to talk to, and often makes friends during competitions,” said Brett’s coach Stephanie. “He is very respectful of his peers and coaches, and is very dedicated to sport in our school.”
