Comox Valley footballer up for athletic award

Camryn Curts is a finalist for TRU newcomer of year

Comox Valley soccer player Camryn Curts has been named a finalist in the newcomer of the year category of the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack 2017/18 athletic awards.

Curts was a first-year midfielder on the women’s soccer team, which had just three wins this year. Throughout the season, she was one of the best players on the team.

Her coach, Kelly Shantz, said she immediately earned her role as a full-time starter, and on-field leader as a central midfielder.

“Camryn showed no fear from day one and became a force on the field,” Shantz said.“She also maintained a high academic standing and may earn Academic All Canadian status at year end.”

Off the field, he said Curts is an active, fun-loving participant in community events, and worked as a bilingual host to a Quebec team for men’s soccer nationals hosted by TRU.

“She has become an important piece of our total team culture and has a bright future at TRU,” Shantz said.

This is the first year TRU is naming a male and female winner in the newcomer category.

The awards are to be distributed at a Thursday banquet in Kamloops.
