Athlete of the Week
The Tire Recycle Rural High School Athlete of the Week is Cassidy McCausland of the Deloraine Colts volleyball team.
This 5’6” libero led the Colts to a Bronze medal finish at the Provincial “A” Girls Volleyball Championship, where she was twice named player of the game. She was selected as a Graduating All-Star and also led her team to gold at the Deloraine Tournament, Silver at the Hamiota Tournament, and Bronze at the Boissevain tournament. Coach Jillian Patmore states, “As one of our co-captains and one of only two grade 12 students, Cassidy brings maturity and leadership to her young team. Cassidy has had to fill many roles during her volleyball career, beginning as a setter, playing right side, and now as a libero. No matter what challenge she is faced with, Cass rises above and manages to stay positive and calm for her team. Her team looks to her to set the tone, and every time, she sets the bar high and her team rises to it. Without her and the leadership and example she provides, we wouldn't have had the success we've had this season”.
This grade 12 student maintains an 87% average, while also participating in badminton, curling, fastpitch, and track & field.
