Athlete of the Week
The Powerland Rural High School Athlete of the Week is Hanna Hamm of the Shevchenko Sabres basketball team.
This 6’0” post helped lead the Sabres to 5 tournament wins this season and a silver medal at the Provincial “A” Basketball Championships, where she was named a Provincial All-Star. Over the season she averaged 15 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 blocks. Coach Penelope Hovorka-Alcock states, “At 6', Hanna has shown to be effective in the post position, especially with her great drives and outside the paint shots. Hanna improved her shooting range in her grade 12 year that has made her extremely difficult to match up with for other teams. Along with her basketball ability, Hanna is a true leader who always modeled a calm and positive attitude for the team to follow. As a coach I feel honored to have had Hanna on the Sabre basketball team due to her determination to become a more competitive and strong player on the basketball court while bringing a positive attitude to the team”.
This Grade 12 student maintains a 75% academic average, while also participating in volleyball and track & field.
