October 5th Grittiest Player: Madison Jarvis

In her first year of playing, Madison Jarvis consistently puts forth her best effort. Sunday’s game against the University of Victoria Vikes was no different. Playing even after having a bloody nose, Madison consistently shut down the opposing team with excellent tackles.

Madison is in her first year of Environmental Sciences at the University of Calgary and is originally from Kelowna, BC.

What does it mean to you to be a gritty player?

To me a gritty player is someone who leaves everything on the field, they play with their heart and want nothing more than to succeed in anyway possible. A gritty player plays not only for themselves but mainly for their teammates. When I'm playing a game, I want to play the to the best of my ability and put everything on the line, I play for myself but I play mainly for my teammates because it is one thing to disappoint myself it is another to let your team, or better yet your family down. A gritty player is someone who puts their love of the game first, and doesn't stop until the final whistle blows.

How long have you been playing Field Hockey, what made you start playing?

I started playing field hockey in grade 10, so this is my fourth season playing. I wanted to play field hockey because it was something different and it was a sport that I had not tried before.

Why did you choose to be a defender/ have you always played defence?

I played defence for soccer so it was easy transfer over some of the positional aspects and it felt like a good fit. I choose to be a defender because I feel more comfortable by the net and honestly there is glory in scoring goals but I feel more accomplished when I stop goals or shut someone down.

Coming from BC, how have you found your first couple of months in Calgary?

My first couple months here in Calgary have been pretty great, I’ve made a lot of great friends and have already had some great memories. The weather is definitely something to get used to but it hasn’t been too bad so far! It has been a large transition but I made the right choice coming to Calgary and I am extremely happy that I did.

Do you have a favourite sports movie/ favourite motivational sports quote?

“Good better best never let it rest until your good is better and your better is your best.” Michael Jordan

What is your favourite post game snack? 

Breakfast burritos with Marion!

If you were not playing field hockey, what sport would you be playing?

I would probably be playing soccer since it was the first sport I played and the starting point for my athletic career. I have played soccer since I was five and it was the first sport that I put my heart and soul into. 

What is one thing most people don’t know about you?

Well, my uvula (the thing that hangs in your throat) is shaped like a heart, most people don’t know that but I guess now they do…

If you won a million dollars, what would you do with it?

 

Haha I wish… Well I would be able to pay for schooling so that would be great and I would also travel everywhere since I love adventure. I would also give money to my parents so they can do whatever they would like since they gave up most of there lives helping me get to where I am today. I would also help assist with some of our funding and give a scholarship to out of province players!

October 4th Grittiest Player: Beckett Frisch

 

For the second time this season the grittiest player is Beckett Frisch for an incredible goal tending performance on Saturday October 4th. Beckett consistently delivers outstanding goal tending performances as exemplified on Saturday when she saved 25 shots.  Her communication and leadership on the field has helped this young team develop and improve. Her dedication to gritt is an excellent example for the rest of the team.
