Athlete of the Week
The Tire Recycle Rural High School Athlete of the Week is Kaylee Butterfield of the Souris Sabres basketball team.
This 5’5” guard is averaging 5.5 points and 6.1 assists per game. She was an All-star at the Souris Shootout, Neelin Invitational, and Elton tournaments, while also earning MVP at the Hamiota Invitational tournament. Coach Trever Penner states, “Kaylee is one of the premiere point guards in all categories of basketball in the province. She is blessed with tremendous speed and uses it effectively in guiding the Sabres offense attack and defending the opposition’s best guards. She leads the team in steals, assists, and minutes played this season and plays a key role on and off the court with her teammates. She has worked very hard on and off the court to improve her skills and the results speak for themselves. She is as dynamic a point guard as you will see play. Many times as Kaylee goes, so go the Sabres”.
