Julian Cincoleon, a Grade 12 student at Immaculata High School, is a quiet young man with an infectious smile. He wants to become an architect and plans on attending both Algonquin College and Carleton University.

Julian enjoys math because he loves to play with numbers and angles. His math teacher and Senior Boys Basketball coach, Mrs. Pickering, says his natural ability in math is one of his many gifts.

“He is extremely talented in class and on the court,” she says.

Julian says he is very competitive and as a player is willing to do whatever it takes to win.

“He is our lock-down defender,” says Mrs. Pickering. “Julian is hard-working and never complains. Once, we needed him to guard a significantly taller player. Often students will complain, but Julian embraced the challenge.”

What impresses her most though is his generous nature.

“When it is Julian’s time to sub, he is genuinely happy to see a teammate meet with success.”                                                                                                                               Not only does Julian have a tremendous respect for his peers but he credits his coaches, Mrs. Pickering and Mr. Milburn, with inspiring him to improve his game while keeping up his grades.

Although he is going to miss his teammates, coaches, friends and teachers, he is excited about the future. In fact, when he tries out for the Algonquin College Thunder, he hopes to follow in the footsteps of his father, who also played basketball there.

“My father was a boxer in the Philippines where (the sport) is huge, but got involved with basketball when he moved to Canada,” Julian says.

Julian’s younger sister, Gabriella, who is in Grade Nine, plays for the junior team at Immaculata. His other sister, Racquel, is in Grade Five and like her mother enjoys playing a variety of sports.

Mrs. Godmaire, Immaculata’s head of physical education, credits Julian’s parents for instilling in him a love for sport, a strong work ethic and the desire to be part of a community.

“Julian’s parents come to all of the games and tournaments,” says Mrs. Godmaire. “They are a tremendous support to their children and to the teams.”
