Athlete of the Week
The Powerland Urban High School Athlete of the Week is Travis Spratt of the Lord Selkirk Royals hockey team.
This 6’2” forward had 31 goals and 15 assists for 46 points in 24 games this year in the Winnipeg High School Hockey league. In 4 play-off appearances he had an additional 7 goals and 6 assists for 13 points. Coach Brad Hrymak states, “Travis was a consistent player this year as shown by scoring at least 1 point in each of the 24 league games. His physical play and strong skating ability created room for him on the ice to get his quick shot away and catch the goalies off guard. His 9 points in 2 games versus Gabrielle Roy in the 1st round of the playoffs helped advance his team into semi-finals”.
