Mikayla Morton

The cancellation of the 2020 soccer season hasn’t stopped Mikayla Morton and the Gee-Gees women’s soccer team from continuing to practice and train at a high-level. Morton is currently finishing up her degree while finding new goals and motivations both on and off the field.

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.
