Hoopsters honoured as week's best athletes

  • Print

AFTER leading the Faith Academy Lightning basketball squad to their first Zone 12 championship, Aina Ramos was lauded on Wednesday as the urban high school athlete of the week. The Grade 9 student, who keeps up a 95 per cent average in her academics, averaged a whopping 25 points and 12 steals through the playoffs and racked up 30 points in the league final.

Outside Winnipeg city limits, Ste. Anne Lynx basketball guard Brock Letkeman was honoured as the rural high school athlete of the week after he helped carry the Lynx to a 26-2 season record and the Zone 13 championship. He averaged 16 points and eight steals through the season.

Track performances stand out

A pair of track and field athletes led the Bisons' nods for athletes of the week after the recent CIS national meet wrapped up in Alberta.

In her rookie campaign, Glenlawn alumna Amy Graceffo scored a season high in the pentathlon, where she racked up 3,440 points and finished ninth, just one place out of the top eight and scoring a point for the Herd. She also ran the second leg for the Bison women's 4x200-metre relay team, which finished 13th.

Meanwhile, third-year Bison track and field athlete Matthew Fitkowsky also scored an athlete of the week nod after he blazed to a sixth-place finish in the men's 300m race, a huge jump up from his 13th place ranking heading into the CIS championships.

He also helped pull the Bisons 4x200m and 4x400m relay teams to sixth-place finishes, up from their 12th place ranking heading into the national competition.
