The Rural High School Athlete of the Week is Rachel Waldner of the Rosenort Redhawks basketball team.

Averaging 28 points, 12 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game this season, she helped lead her team to a berth in the Provincial "A" Basketball Championships.  In the Zone 4 final she led her team to victory contributing 30 points and adding 10 rebounds. She led her RedHawks to a 3rd place finish at the Elm Creek tournament as well as the championship in Morris. Coach Jared Dueck states, "A player like Rachel doesn't come along very often. She has been a major part of the varsity basketball program in Rosenort since she joined in Grade 9.  She's a great leader, a huge threat on offense and has become a dominant force on defense as well."

This grade 12 student maintains an 89% academic average, while also competing in volleyball.
