The Rural High School Athlete of the Week is Amanda Muswagon of the Helen Betty Osborne Huskies basketball team.

Muswagon helped lead the Huskies to the finals of the Zone 11 'AAA' Varsity Basketball Championships and an overall 13-6 record on the season. At the Zone championships she averaged 21 points per game over the four games played. Coach Michael Knox states, "In the finals, she made big plays on both ends of the floor in a back and forth game that wasn't decided until the final two minutes. She was dominant on offense, with opposing teams frequently double and even triple teaming her on defense. On these occasions, she was a willing passer and looked to set up her teammates. Amanda has been a pivotal part of the team all season, she will be missed".

This grade 12 student plans to attend the University of Manitoba next year to study Kinesiology and hopefully continue her basketball career.
