Lamont, Becker lauded for their efforts

  • Print

THE Manitoba High School Athletic Association recognized two basketball players for their efforts on the court last week.

Kristjan Lamont of the Kelvin basketball team was named the urban athlete of the week for his role in helping the Clippers grab a berth in the Milk AAAA Basketball Championships, which takes place later this month. The Grade 12 student averages 16 points and eight rebounds.

"The best part of Kristjan's game is his dominating defence, averaging over three blocked shots per contest," said head coach Don Lamont.

Meanwhile, Joy Becker of the Goose Lake Angels basketball team was named the rural high school athlete of he week.

The Grade 12 student averaged 15 points, five steals, and four rebounds this season.

"Joy is a game-changer, her speed on offence leads to many layups and uncontested drives to the basket," head coach Brant Neufeld said.

Blue giving pointers

KIDSPORT and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are holding a football camp for young gridiron hopefuls on April 7.

The camp will be hosted by former Bombers defensive lineman Doug Brown. Said Brown in a release: "It gives these kids the chance to learn some of the finer points of football from professional athletes, which is something that not many ever get the opportunity to do."

The camp, now in its third year, is available to any athlete who received funding to play football last season. Joining Brown will be current Bombers Obby Khan, Mike Renaud, Glenn January, Marcellus Bowman, Steve Morley, Chris Greaves and Kelly Butler.

Nani expected in Brandon

A member of Manchester United is expected to be in Brandon for an elite soccer camp this summer.

The Rowland Soccer Academy, headed up by former Canadian Under-20 national goalkeeper Brian Rowland, is scheduled to take place July 4-8 in the Wheat City. Among the guest coaches is Nani, the Portuguese winger who stars on the famous English Premier League club.

Phalen, Pischke honoured

JACKY PHALEN and Dane Pischke were selected as the Manitoba Bisons athletes of the week.

Phalen, a second-year Winnipeg-product on the track and field team, won the 800-metre race at the 2012 Boeing Indoor Classic last weekend. The Kelvin-grad posted a time of time of 2:14.90 to beat seven other runners.

Phalen and the rest of the Bisons track team host the 2012 CIS National Championships at the Max Bell Fieldhouse, which starts Thursday.

Pischke, a fourth-year right side hitter on the men's volleyball team, not only helped lead his club to a bronze medal at the national championships last weekend, but was also selected to the CIS championship all-star team at the event. In three matches, the Winnipegger had 53 kills.
