Male athlete of the week: Quinlan Snider

It can be hard to stay focused without many games to look forward to, however, Senior Boys Soccer captain Quinlan Snider consistently demonstrates focus, determination and grit, and can often be found putting in extra work outside of practice. He leads by example both on and off the pitch, and is working hard to make sure the team is ready for zones at the end of the month.
