Olivier-Job named All-Canadian
Fourth year sweeper Tevin Olivier-Job of the Sea-Hawks soccer team has been named to the Canadian Interuniversity Sport second Team All-Canadian for the second year in a row. Last year Mr. Olivier-Job was named to the All-Canadian team marking the first time a Memorial Men’s soccer player received the honour. Last week Mr. Olivier-Job was also named to the AUS first Team All-Stars.

From Winnipeg, Mr. Olivier-Job came to Memorial four years ago and has been the highlight of the Sea-Hawks defence. This year, with such a young team suiting up for the Sea-Hawks, Mr. Olivier-Job became the backbone of the team.

Mr. Olivier-Job played 90 minutes in all 11 games for the Sea-Hawks and received player of the game honours three times. Along with his defensive play, Mr. Olivier-Job was to contribute offensively, distributing the ball to his teammates as well as adding two goals.

During the 2002-2003 season Mr. Olivier-Job also represented his home province of Manitoba in the 2002 Challenge Cup Nationals. His play on the backline during this tournament caused trouble for the opponents and helped his team win the National Title handing an overtime loss to Newfoundland and his Sea-Hawk teammate Richard Kelly. Coach Scott Betts is extremely pleased with Mr. Olivier-Job’s play and the award.

“It's great that Tevin is given this recognition, he is a team leader and well respected for his talents amongst his teammates and throughout the league.” Next year will be Mr. Olivier-job’s last year of eligibility.
