The Tire Recycle Rural High School Athlete of the Week is Jessica Holod of the Teulon Saints basketball team.
This 5’11” post/guard led her team to victory at the Riffel (Regina) and Boissevain tournaments. This past weekend she helped lead the Saints to a second place finish at the Sisler tournament where she received player of the game recognition against Glenlawn and was named to the tournament all-star team. She scored 20 points in their quarter-finals win over Glenlawn while going 6 for 6 from the three point line. Coach Jason Darragh states, “Jess is a starter for the Saints and has averaged 30 plus minutes a game this season. Jessica is a great defender that has averaged 9 blocked shots a game. She has stepped up in big games this season by hitting a big 3 pointer or making a huge defensive stop when the team needs a lift. Jess has averaged 15 points a game and has played a huge role in the success of the Teulon Saints”.
This grade 12 student maintains a 95% average, while also participating in volleyball.
