Cambridge, ON – Beati Mundo corde – Blessed are the pure in heart.

The motto of Trinity College School in Port Hope where goaltender Marc-Olivier Robert of St-Hubert, Que. cut his teeth in sports and academics, lives on.

 “I have learned to respect the game, respect my coaches, respect my teammates,” said Robert, a goaltender.

After starting out in ball hockey and ending up at a boarding school in Ontario, Robert won 22 regular season games for the Amherstview Jets of the Provincial Junior Hockey League, a season after going 13-5-1 with a 1.91 GAA with the Clarington Eagles of the East Orr Division. He also made good on a 94 per cent academic average to earn a coveted Dairy Farmers of Ontario bursary.

On the ice, it’s personal.

“Just so I can look at my teammates and know that I gave everything.”

Off the ice, it’s a sense of contributing.

“I was lucky enough to work with the junior school. I got to teach young children how to play hockey.”

Robert was part of a local Week Without Walls, a seven-day stretch of volunteer work.  

“Make my community a better place.”

 In the class, it’s first-class. Robert is studying Commerce at Queen’s University, with an eye to get into sports management as a career.

“I had the choice between staying at home or going to Queen’s to live in residence.  

“Time management and planning far ahead so I can get all my assignments in on time.”  

It’s working out after first getting cut from a competing junior team.

“They didn’t want me. Clarington took me on their team, we made it to the Schmalz Cup finals and I got a $6,000 scholarship.

“It turned out great.

“I want to personally thank the Dairy Farmers of Ontario.”
