  • Print

The Manitoba High School Athletics Association announced their biggest prize today, honouring Bryce Watson of Glenboro School and Kerri Kuzbyt of Sisler High School as the 2012m ale and female athletes of the year.

Watson and Kuzbyt edged out more than 30,000 athletes participating in Manitoba high school sports.

"It's just such an honour that someone from my size of town could win an award over anyone else in the province," said the 6-foot-3 Watson. "Just to be recognized is a humbling experience."

Watson, 18, was a graduating all-star in both volleyball and basketball while also participating in golf, cross-country running, hockey, badminton, baseball and track and field.

As captain of the basketball team, Watson was chosen as player of the year for the "A" division.

"I scored 54 points in a game," said Watson when asked what his highlight of the year was.

Watson also led his hockey team to a silver medal in the provincial finals, tallying 111 points over the regular season.

Kuzbyt, 18, of Sisler, was ranked the number one Female Basketball Player by league coaches, won the Carl Ridd award for top player and was named to the All-Manitoba team.

"It's just special to win, so special," said Kuzbyt, who will be attending the University of Winnipeg next year on a full basketball scholarship.

She also competed in cross-country running, volleyball, soccer and track and field.

Each winner received a trophy along with a ring supplied by Jostons, recognizing their athletic achievements.
