Wesmen wrestlers golden

Two Wesmen wrestlers returned from the Canada West championship in Saskatchewan with hardware around their neck and a school athletics honour.

Second-year wrestlers Kyle Nguyen and Emily Kessler were named the Wesmen Garbonzo's players of the week on Tuesday, after grappling their way to a podium finish at the recent conference championship.

Nguyen claimed the gold medal in his 120-kg weight class, after rolling through the competition with a perfect 4-0 record and earning a unanimous decision in the gold-medal match. Kessler, meanwhile, earned a silver medal in the 55-kg weight class, falling only to University of Alberta champion Amber Maschke in the final tilt.

 

Nod for Garden City hoopster

Garden City Fighting Gophers basketball guard Byron Oduca is having a big season, averaging 18 points and three steals per game. Now, the 5-9 senior has another honour to go along with his all-star awards at the Wesmen Classic and St. Vital tournaments: On Tuesday, Oduca was named the Home Run Sports urban high school athlete of the week. The powerhouse Garden City squad has made it to the final of all four tournaments they've entered this season.

Outside city limits, Treherne Tigers guard Paige Small was honoured Tuesday as the Tri-Star rural high school athlete of the week, in the heart of a solid season. The 5-2 senior has put up an average of 24 points and six steals per game, while also being named an all-star at the Tigers' home tournament. Besides keeping up a 96 per cent average in school, she also competes in cross-country, volleyball, badminton, fastball and track and field.

 

MJHL Kings' Wold honoured

While the Dauphin Kings sit atop the Manitoba Junior Hockey League's Sher-Wood Division standings, a tip of the hat to one of the team's top players: Forward Brent Wold was named the MJHL's Recycle Everywhere player of the week on Tuesday, after racking up three goals and five assists in five games last week. The 19-year-old Lac du Bonnet product has put up 19 goals and 45 points in 38 games for the Kings.

Runners-up for the player-of-the-week award were Virden Oil Capitals forward Kurt Johnas, 19, and Swan Valley Stampeders forward Brayden McDonald, 18.
