Sturgeon Heights (AAAA)
The Powerland Urban High School Athlete of the Week is Nya Krauchi of the Sturgeon Heights Huskies volleyball team.
This 5’7” libero had a strong showing at the McDonalds AAAA JV Volleyball Championships leading the team with a strong serve receive and tenacious defense. At the WWAC zone championships she was named a championship all-star. Coach Paul Dyrland states, “Nya had a very strong week at AAAA JV provincials this past week. She made some huge digs at key points in matches to keep rallies going, allowing our hitters to put a ball away for us. She passed very well on serve receive, and allowed our team to operate effectively in system. She has been a defensive leader for our team all year, and she played her best volleyball at the biggest stage."
In grade 10, she maintains an 80% academic average.
