Nowicki and Knight named Mucho Burrito AOTW

Oct. 2, 2018 – The Kodiaks are proud to name Sophia Nowicki (WXC) and Ben Knight (MSOC) on being named the Mucho Burrito Kodiaks Athletes of the Week!

There were once again many great nominees to choose from, especially after a dominating performance by the women’s cross-country team at the ACAC Grand Prix #4 and big wins for Kodiaks soccer against Olds on Saturday. 

At the end of the day, it was impossible to overlook Sophia Nowicki’s third straight Grand Prix victory and Ben Knight’s leadership in the Kodiaks midfield.

The Kodiaks would like to thank Mucho Burrito for becoming the official sponsor of the Kodiaks Athlete of the Week! Each AOTW winner will receive a gift certificate to Mucho Burrito in recognition of their great performances.

Sophia Nowicki – WXC

The sophomore phenom made it three wins in three races on Saturday, taking gold at the ACAC Grand Prix #4 in Lloydminster. It was a true test for the reigning CCAA bronze medalist, as this weekend represented the first race of the season with all ACAC teams present. Sophia thrived against the increased competition, taking first by 17 seconds over the second-place finisher and leading her Kodiaks to a third straight top team finish.

Ben Knight – MSOC

Ben led by example all weekend as captain of the Kodiaks men’s team and was a key part of Saturday’s crucial 1-0 victory over Olds.  From breaking up opposing attacks to being a centre piece of the Kodiaks offence, he worked hard for all 180 minutes he played and didn’t slow down all weekend.
