The Rural High School Athletes of the Week are Tayah Vanstone & Phoebe Riddell of the Miami Marlins badminton team.

This girl's doubles team have had a dominant badminton season this year. They went undefeated in zone IV play, winning the zone championship banner in varsity girls doubles. During the season they won the Maples tournament, while placing second in the Louis Riel and Gimli tournaments.  They then capped off their impressive season capturing gold at the Provincial Badminton Championship in Thompson. Coach Wanda Stockford states, "Both girls are irreplaceable to our school culture and student leadership team and will be missed in June when they graduate".

Tayah maintains an academic average of 96%, while Phoebe has an academic average of 98% in all courses.
