The Powerland Rural High School Athlete of the Week is Zach Van Walleghem of the Sanford Sabres basketball team.

This 6’0” guard helped the Sabres to win at their home, WinterCat tournament, where he was named the tournament MVP.  He has also been selected as a tournament all-star at two previous tournaments.  Coach Hank Nyman states, “Zach has a non-stop motor and plays the game all-out all the time.  He loves talking the game as well, with a competitive, academic approach to all situations.  His style occasionally gets Zach into foul trouble, however the balance usually is tipped in his favour”.

This Grade 11 student maintains a 90% academic average.
