Bisons prep for start of training camp

THE University of Manitoba Bisons football team is getting ready to put together its 2013 roster, as training camp opens this week.

Over 110 players have been invited to the three-day camp, which kicks off on Thursday with a round of meetings. Players will get their first taste of practice on Friday, and the camp closes on Sunday with a full scrimmage at the University of Manitoba turf fields. Among the invited players are 60 returning Bisons and 56 newcomers.

Battles to watch include the quarterback position, where red-hot newcomer Jordan Yantz will battle fourth-year Bison Marc Paquette and returning Theo Deezar, who redshirted with the Bisons last year, for the starter's job.

The Bisons are looking to build on last year's results, which saw them go 4-4 against Canada West teams during the regular season.

 

Badminton heats up

THE nets are getting set for 256 young athletes to compete for the title of 2013 provincial high school badminton champion.

On Friday and Saturday, College Louis Riel, St. Boniface University and J.H. Bruns Collegiate will host players from 15 zones across Manitoba in the boys singles, girls singles, boys doubles, girls doubles and mixed doubles competitions.

Each school will host a full day of tournament play on Friday, while championship playoffs will begin 9 a.m. Saturday at College Louis Riel. Full schedules and tournament results will be available at the Manitoba High School Athletics Association website, MHSAA.ca.

 

High school stars

AS players get ready for the provincial high school badminton tournament, two of the top players are being honoured for their achievements.

Garden City Fighting Gophers singles player Jocelyn Bartos was named the Home Run Sports Urban High School athlete of the week on Tuesday, after capturing her third straight KPAC championship. Bartos also won the recent Louis Riel tournament, and was a finalist at the Maples tourney. The 5-10 senior keeps an 86 per cent average in school, while also playing volleyball and running cross-country.

Outside city limits, Grade 12 student Gabrielle Delorme from Ecole Regional St. Jean-Baptiste was named the Tri-Star Rural High School athlete of the week, after she and her partner Megan Fraser won girls doubles gold at the Gimli, Carman and Maples tournaments. The pair also won the Zone 4 championship to earn their berth to the provincials this weekend.

Delorme maintains an 80 per cent average and also plays volleyball and participates in track and field.
