Men’s rugby player Robin Calamatta has been named Georgian Grizzlies Athlete of the Week after a big performance to kick off the year.
Calamatta, a fifth year flanker from Erin, was instrumental in helping lead the Grizzlies to their first win of the season. He scored a team high two tries in Georgian’s 33-24 victory over the Conestoga Condors on Sunday in the team’s first regular season game.
A student in the Computer Programmer analyst program, Calamatta’s leadership was evident in helping a young Grizzlies squad battle against last year’s defending bronze medalists.
The Grizzlies will return to action this Sunday when they host the Mohawk Mountaineers at 1 p.m. at the Barrie Community Sports Complex.
Also in contention for this week’s award was teammate Anderson Do. The rookie fullback was a standout in his first OCAA regular season match scoring a key try, a convert and two successful penalty kicks.
