As COVID-19 continues to bring uncertainty, various Gee-Gees sports teams are awaiting announcements regarding their seasons, or already shifting their focus to 2021. Athletes from the football team, men’s and women’s rugby teams, and the men’s ultimate frisbee team share their outlook on the current situation.

“We’re going to see this team again. We don’t take this lightly—we’re going to use this as motivation.” —Angela Ribarich, Gee-Gees centre.

“We didn’t know how we would fall relative to the top three teams (Carleton, Lakehead, Nipissing). So it was an exciting event for us to finally be sending a team after so long.” —Zeke Williams, U of O Nordiq skiier.

“It was a game that had a lot on the line, and we did have a high stress level. But you can tell with our press offence that our seniors were struggling with the ball at the end, but a learning experience will be better next time.’’ —Andy Sparks, Gee-Gees head women’s basketball coach.

“Usually in the playoffs, what it comes down to is good teamwork, special teams, and goaltending. I know we have good teamwork and good goaltending, but special teams are something you’ve constantly got to work on.” —Patrick Grandmaitre, Gee-Gees head men’s hockey coach.
