Athlete of the Week
The Tire Recycle Urban Athletes of the Week is Madeleine Robert of the Centre Scolaire Leo-Remillard badminton team.
This 5’5’ singles player was a finalist in the Carmen tournament, and completed her SCAC league with 14 wins and 1 loss. She won the SCAC girls singles championship, qualifying her for the Provincial Badminton Championships. Coach Benoit Carriere states, “Madeleine is an incredible athlete and a role model on and off the court. She not only has the physical requirements to be a fierce competitor, but she also has a strong mental game, which allows her to come back against skilled opponents. Madeleine is always willing to give it her all, whether it’s at practice or zone championships, and that’s just one of the many reasons she’s lots of fun to coach.”
This grade 11 student maintains an 85% average, while also competing in volleyball.
