This 6’2” forward is averaging 20 points and 12 rebounds per game while leading the Carman Cougars varsity girls basketball team to a 20W-4L record on the season including a zone 4 championship and a win in the provincial qualifiers this past week-end in Steinbach. Coach James Ballantyne states, “Vanessa is very dedicated to her sport and her team. She has put in countless hour over the years to develop her skills as a basketball player and the results show on the court. With her size and skill combination she is a dominant force on both ends of the court. She makes it tough for our opponents to get to the basket while consistently putting up points for our team. Vanessa is also a co-captain of our team and helps lead the way by being a positive, vocal leader on the floor”.
