The Rural High School Athlete of the Week is Payton Leflar of the Morris Mavericks volleyball team.

This setter/right side led her team to victory at the Maverick's home tournament and a third place finsh at the Deloraine tournament.  Coach Scott Stevenson states, "Payton already understands the game better than most, and outworks the competition on a daily basis. She is a natural leader on the court and excels at both setter and right side. Her consistent play is invaluable to the team. At the start of a game, or game point, she is able to consistently perform under pressure. She’s been an integral part of her team’s success this year." 

This grade 10 student maintains a 92% academic average, while also participating in badminton.
