Bellavance and Veluw named Mucho Burrito Athletes of the Week

Sept. 10, 2019 – After a long summer of preparation, Kodiaks soccer returned to the pitch last weekend for their opening two games of the ACAC season.

All in all it was a largely positive weekend for the Lethbridge sides, particularly for the women who went undefeated after two impressive performances. The men started with a bang, winning large on Friday against Augustana before falling in a late stunner to Red Deer on Saturday. 

Two Kodiaks student athletes in particular left their mark on the weekend, as Brooklin Bellavance and Jaden Veluw used their abilities on both sides of the ball to earn themselves the first Mucho Burrito Kodiaks Athlete of the Week award honours of 2019-20. 

Congrats Brooklin and Jaden! Enjoy your Mucho Burrito.

Brooklin Bellavance - WSOC 

Brooklin (fourth year, Ecosystem Management) led her team to an undefeated opening weekend. She scored the game winner on Saturday against Augustana, helping the Kodiaks complete a comeback after being down one at half. 

Her strong defensive play then earned her Player of the Match honours in the Kodiaks 3-0 win over Red Deer College on Sunday.   

Jaden Veluw - MSOC

Jaden (fourth year, Bachelor of Nursing) helped the Kodiaks get out to a fast start last weekend, scoring a goal and earning Player of the Match honours in the team’s 5-0 home opener win over Augustana. 

Despite a disappointing loss to Red Deer on Sunday, the veteran defender was stellar on the Kodiaks back line all weekend long. 


Mucho Burrito has been the proud sponsor of the Kodiaks Athlete of the Week award since 2018. Both recipients of this week's award will receive a gift certificate for Mucho Burrito.
