Lubocki honoured as top Jewish jock

EZEQUIEL LUBOCKI, a soccer player from Winnipeg, has been named the 2013 Jewish athlete of the year and winner of the Max and Idy Nusgart Memorial Award.

Lubocki, who is 20 years old, plays midfield with the University of Toronto Varsity Blues soccer team. He's been named an Ontario University Athletics (OUA) first-team all-star two years in a row, OUA East rookie of the year and the Varsity Blue's male rookie of the year.

During the 2012 season, Lubocki dressed for 12 games and scored three goals.

Lubocki was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1992 and moved to Winnipeg with his family when he was 10 years old. He has represented Manitoba at the Western Canada Games and Canada Summer Games. He was named Manitoba's 2009 youth player of the year and twice was named Soccer Manitoba's athlete of the year.

The Max and Idy Nusgart Memorial Award was presented Thursday at the 41st annual Rady JCC Y Sports dinner at the Winnipeg Convention Centre.

 

New role for Scott

KIDSPORT Winnipeg has announced Olympian Desiree Scott will be a Team KidSport athlete ambassador.

Scott was a member of the Canadian women's soccer team that won the bronze medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics. She has been a professional soccer player since 2006 and plays midfield for FC Kansas City in the National Women's Soccer League.

"I'm truly honoured to have been asked to become a KidSport athlete ambassador," said Scott, a Winnipegger. "Sports have been a huge part of my life and I am thankful that I now have the opportunity to help KidSport get more kids playing the sports they love. Without KidSport's assistance, I truly believe I'd have missed out on many of my life's experiences, especially the Olympic Games."

The 2012 Manitoba female athlete of the year will join former Winnipeg Blue Bomber Doug Brown as an ambassador.
