Athletes of the Week

  • The rural athlete of the week is Renee Normandeau of the St. Joachim Braves cross-country runnng team in La Broquerie.

The 5-8 runner finished in first place at the Zone 13 championship and qualified for the provincial cross-country championship, which takes place on Oct. 16 at Spruce Woods Provincial Park.

"Renee is the kind of person that leads by example," says her coach, Rheal Chaput. "She gives her all in everything she does, never complains and never turns down a challenge."

Renee is in Grade 9 and has an 85 per cent average, while also participating in volleyball.

 

  • The urban athlete of the week is LaDawn Friesen of the Linden Christian Wings volleyball team.

The 5-11 middle led her team to a second-place finish at the U of W Classic and championships at the Shaftesbury and Lorette tournaments. She was selected tournament MVP at both Shaftesbury and Lorette, and earned all-star honours at U of W.

"LaDawn is a pleasure to coach. Her passion for the sport is clear and her encouragement for her teammates and vocal support make her a great team leader," says her coach, Tom Neufeld. "As one of the top volleyball athletes in Manitoba, she is a great role model for the entire team."

She maintains a 90 per cent average in her Grade 12 year.
