Athlete of the Week
The Powerland Urban High School Athlete of the Week is Kerra Houde of the Murdoch MacKay Clansmen volleyball team.
This 5’9” middle led her team to two wins this week with 26 kills and only 2 errors with a hitting percentage of 96%, to go along with 10 serving aces in 6 sets of volleyball. Coach Treva Tilston-Jones states, “Kerra is the key to our success this season. She is the foundation of the team and excels in preparing our team for games. She leads by example, and encourages all players on and off the court. She reinforces the plays that we work on in practice and helps direct the other players. She is an organizer and promotes spontaneous and harmonious movements, or rotation of players, on the court. She knows how to motivate our team and keep them focussed. She steps up and her athletic ability shines through especially when games are close.”
In grade 12, she maintains a 91% academic average.
