Posted 03/07/2019 03:22PM

As an engineering student at the University of Ottawa, alumnus Cody Van Lierop '14 is also a second-year defenseman on the Gee-Gees men's hockey team. He credits his time as an LFA student-athlete in preparing him for the demanding student-athlete life at university.

Van Lierop says, "It was awesome there (LFA). It was kind of a change of pace after playing minor midget in the Toronto area, to going to a prep school where you're a student athlete just like at university. And the student part comes before the athletics, so, I was making sure I was getting all my assignments and everything done while playing hockey." Being a student-athlete, in Van Lierop's opinion, "is unbelievable."
