Interview with goaltender David Ritz

If presented with the task of having to get in the way of flying rubber disks fired at speeds upwards of 100 kilometers per hour, most people would gawk at the prospect. Not David Ritz.

"I’m a battler,” says the 5’10 netminder, "I never give up on the play." Ritz is back for his second year with the Vikings hockey team, who are off to a great start, winning their first two games of the season against the N.A.I.T. Ooks. In the Vikings home opener on Oct. 7, Ritz made 20 saves, backstopping the team to a 7-5 victory.

Deciding to attend Camrose and suit up for the Vikings over a year was an easy decision for Ritz. "There was great word of mouth concerning the school, and they had the right program for me." Along with the enjoyment involved with being apart of a steadily rising hockey program and attending a great school, Ritz has also fallen in love with the community.

"Camrose is a great city," says the second year Bachelor of Arts student, "I could see myself living here after I graduate." Ritz plans to get a degree in education in order to teach either English or History at high school.
