A football defender and a soccer striker were heralded for their athletic achievements this week, earning high school athlete of the week honours.
Kelvin Clippers defensive back TJ Boyko was named the Home Run Sports Urban High School Athlete of the Week after his dominant defensive showing in the Clippers’ last match, where he notched seven tackles and two interceptions in Kelvin’s win over the Dakota Lancers. The Grade 12 student was named the Winnipeg High School Football League’s defensive player of the week for that game.
Outside the city, Steinbach Regional Sabres soccer striker Ronaldo Rodas was named the Tri-Star Rural High School Athlete of the Week after leading his team to the Zone 13 championship. Although just in Grade 10, Rodas scored key goals in the Sabres’ tournament victories in Minnedosa and Stonewall, and coach Steve Rebizant described him as a quiet leader on the team.
