Athlete of the Week
The Tire Recycle Urban Athlete of the Week is Laura Hill of the St. Mary’s Academy Flames volleyball team.
This 5’11” middle led the Flames to a first place finish in the Selkirk and St. Vital tournaments, earning MVP honours at both events. At the St. Vital tournament she put up some impressive stats, with a hitting efficiency of 54% and 30 blocks. Coach Christine Rewniak states, “Laura is a dynamic player who has the ability to change the flow of a game with her aggressive attacking and blocking style. She works extremely hard and is very receptive to feedback. These traits, along with her positive attitude, have contributed to her becoming a dominant middle attacker.”
In grade 12, she maintains an 80% academic average.
