Two young Manitoba athletes have been honoured for their achievements in recent provincial championships.
Brittany Peters blazed through the recent provincial high school track and field championships, earning her kudos as the Home Run Sports urban high school athlete of the week. Peters, a 5-5 senior at Stonewall Collegiate, medalled in all four events she competed in at the provincial meet. She claimed gold in the javelin with a throw of 35.69 metres, and silver in the triple jump, 4x100-metre relay and 4x400-metre relay. She also maintains a whopping 95.5 per cent average at school, while participating in basketball, badminton and curling.
Further outside Winnipeg, Altona’s Brent Wiebe was named the Tri-Star rural high school athlete of the week, after the W.C. Miller baseball team pitcher and catcher led his Aces to gold at the provincial high school baseball championship. Wiebe, a senior who also plays hockey, was named the championship MVP after leading his team in most offensive and defensive categories throughout the weekend.
