The Tire Recycle Urban Athlete of the Week is Sadie McTavish of the St. John’s Ravenscourt Eagles volleyball team.

This 5’10” left side was a Tournament All-Star at the Lorette and SJR Invitational tournaments, and nominated for Best Attacker at the Western Canadian Independent Schools Championship. Sadie recently helped lead her team to its first ever “AAA” SCAC Championship. She led her team with 306 kills and 91 service aces this year. Coach Ryan Kope states, “Sadie is an incredibly gifted and motivated athlete, an intense competitor. She leads her team by example by fighting for every single point, regardless of the score. What I love about Sadie is her tenacity and spirit, and the way in which she has bought into our team identity and goals. She is the kind of teammate others love to play with, and the kind of athlete coaches love to work with”. 

This grade 11 student maintains an 88% average, while also participating in cross country running and soccer.
