Athlete of the Week
The Powerland Rural High School Athlete of the Week is Hailey Hunter of the Nellie McClung Stingers fast pitch team.
This 5’9” pitcher has gone undefeated in Zone 6 league play, posting an 8-0 record, which included throwing three complete games. She also led the Stingers to the “D” side championship at the Portage and Winkler tournaments. She leads the stingers in most offensive categories including hits 23, runs 29, home runs 2, RBI 20, stolen bases 10. On the mound she has 12 wins and 69 strike outs. Coach Grant Caldwell states, "Hailey has been with the team for four years and has become the undisputed leader of the Stingers this year. She has a calm demeanour about her that keeps everyone loose while at the same time being very competitive. After not pitching much in the last few years, we have counted on Hailey all season long to log the big innings we need to be successful and she has come through while battling a series of injuries. We are very lucky to have this student-athlete on our team".
In grade 12, she maintains an 85% academic average, while also participating in golf, volleyball, track & field, and curling.
