Alex Sabourin of the College Regional Gabrielle-Roy Les Roys Volleyball team is this week’s Tri-Star Rural High School athlete of the week. This 5’9” setter led his team to the “AAA” Provincial Volleyball Championship. For his efforts he was named the Dairy’s Farmer’s Player Choice Award co-recipient and the Championship MVP. Coach Pascal Guenette states, “Alex is a leader on and off the court. He is a very stable player on the court, never gets down on himself or other players, and keeps the fight alive at all times. He is quick at solving problems on the court and runs a most creative offence. Though smaller in stature, he is an offensive threat at the net as a setter that can score repeatedly and is an effective blocker. His defensive abilities may be even stronger. He is a great ambassador and role model for the sport of volleyball and sports in general.” This grade 12 student maintains an average of 88%, while also competing in soccer, badminton, basketball and baseball.
