Two Manitobans to be inducted

THE 2013 Canadian National 4-Wall Handball Championship opens today at the University of Winnipeg's Duckworth Centre and runs through Sunday.

One of the real highlights of the event will be the induction of two local players -- Lisa Fraser-Gilmore and Merv Deckert -- into the Canadian Handball Association Hall of Fame at the Saturday banquet.

Both are former world champions who, between them have captured 19 national titles and multiple world titles. Both have been inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame.

The men's open singles event has attracted a top field, including Luis Moreno of Tucscon, Ariz., last year's points leader in the World Players of Handball/Simple Green Pro Stop series.

In the women's open division, Tracy Davis of Tucson and Maria Dugas of Halifax -- the 2012 United States Handball Association National Collegiate finalist -- will battle with Fraser-Gilmore.

 

High school's best

PATRICIA SALCEDA of the Sisler Spartans badminton team has been honoured as this week's Home Run Sports urban high school athlete of the week. Patricia and her partner, Jan Salceda, won the Zone 1 doubles championship and went undefeated while winning the gold at the provincial championship.

The Tri-Star rural high school athlete of the week is Rhys Sheppard of the Margaret Barbour badminton team in The Pas.

Sheppard and his partner finished first in all the doubles tournaments they entered this year while winning the Zone 11 championship for the second consecutive year.

They went on to the provincial championship where they claimed a silver medal.
