Athlete of the Week
The Tire Recycle Rural High School Athlete of the Week is Shanna Thomson of the Killarney Raiders volleyball team.
This 5’8” leftside led the team to 63-7 season record including going undefeated in league play and capturing the Provincial “AA” Volleyball Championship. She was named the Provincial MVP and was the Raiders team leader this season in kills and service aces and second in digs and blocks. Coach Terrill Outhwaite states, “Shanna captained the Killarney Raiders varsity girls volleyball team to a very successful 2015 campaign, defending their provincial AA title by going a perfect 14-0 at the championship for a second consecutive season. It was her leadership on and off the court that made the biggest impact on the team. The team success was a result of the commitment and focus each team member distributed the last 3 seasons and Shanna led by example each practice or training session, always giving 100% of what she has to give that day”.
This grade 12 student maintains an 86% average, while also participating in badminton, basketball, fastpitch, and track & field
