Athlete of the Week
Phoebe Riddell & Tayah Vanstone
The Tire Recycle Rural High School Athletes of the Week are Phoebe Riddell & Tayah Vanstone of the Miami Marlins badminton team.
This dynamic duo in JV Girls Doubles has won three tournaments this year, claiming the championship at the Carman, Garden Valley and Northlands Parkway badminton tournaments. Coach Brent Unrau states, “Both Phoebe and Tayah are excellent role models for the younger students in our school to look up too. One of the most impressive things about these two is how high they set the bar for themselves both academically and athletically.”
Both are in grade 10 and also participate in volleyball and fastpitch, with Tayah also involved in curling. Riddell maintains a 97% average and Vanstone a 96% average in their academic courses.
