Kal Shaw: varsity soccer MVP
Athletics, specifically soccer, have been one of my many passions that UCC allows me to pursue.
I was fortunate to be introduced to soccer at a very young age in my hometown of Whitby, Ont. Since then I have committed to improving as a player. When I arrived at the College, soccer immediately became an outlet where I was given an opportunity to enhance my skills as a player and a leader, in addition to building relationships for life with my teammates. For the past three years, I’ve been very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with my peers who are as dedicated and invested in the team as I am.
This year we collectively accomplished an undefeated season, winning both the Canadian Accredited Independent Schools national title and the Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association championship.
I’m extremely grateful for the opportunities this institution provides. The constant support and encouragement from my family, teammates, coaches, teachers and the UCC boarding community throughout the season have been instrumental in my personal success. It’s truly an honour to receive the most valuable player award this year.
