Karl Sundquist, the coach of the Avon High School hockey team, offers encouragement during an 8-0 victory over Enfield High School in a game played at Avon Old Farms school earlier this week. Sundquist had surgery for testicular cancer a year ago, and less than two weeks later he was back coaching at Avon and cancer-free. Not long afterward, Sundquist and his wife, Lisa, adopted their first child, Sarah Rose.
