Newbridge Academy Welcomes Carys Sullivan to Female Bantam Varsity
Carys Sullivan will hit the ice this September with the Newbridge Academy Female Bantam Varsity 2017-2018 team.
When it comes to hard work and continuous effort, Carys Sullivan steps up to the challenge. A young leader on and off the ice, Sullivan prepares herself to compete at a new level of play with the varsity team this fall. An assistant captain with the Metro East Inferno Peewee AA team, Carys shined when her team needed her most. Adjusting her game, and playing with adversity are just a few of her great on ice qualities that make her an ideal fit for the program.
“Carys reminds me of the way that her father played – hard working, team orientated player that plays with attention to the details of a structured team game. She is very quiet off the ice, but on the ice, her game speaks volumes for her passion for the game. I am looking forward to having Carys continue at Newbridge Academy and to have her back to the school as a member of our Bantam Varsity U14 Program.” – Paddy Flynn, Head Coach, Director of Varsity Hockey Programs, Newbridge Academy
Moving into her 2nd year with Newbridge Academy, Carys thoroughly enjoys her time in the classroom and on the ice and it shows. She is well respected by her teachers and peers and strives for excellence in all she does. In recent years, Carys received the 2015-2016 Provincial Sportsmanship award followed by the 2016-2017 Metro East Inferno Leadership award.
Former Coach Dana Drake said: “Carys is one of the smartest and hardest working players on the ice. A two-way player with a strong sense of defensive responsibility which is not easily come by at this age. She knows how to use her body and loves to compete. She has a real nose for the net looking for rebounds and can score big game goals. A very coachable kid that is eager to learn and succeed.”
Carys’ future goals include attending College or University where she can continue to play high level hockey and study to become a Dentist. “I am excited to participate in the varsity program this upcoming school year. I enjoy the academics and athletics side of the school.”- Carys
“Carys likes being challenged in and outside of the classroom. Newbridge is one of the few schools that provide opportunities to young athletes who want to excel at both sports and academics. It’s been a great fit for her and we are looking forward to the upcoming year.” – Ian & Maureen Sullivan
