The Dairy Farmers of Manitoba Urban High School Athlete of the Week is Olivia Dao of the Sturgeon Heights Huskies volleyball team.

Olivia was instrumental in leading the Huskies to the championship of the Royal Rumble tournament in Selkirk.  Additionally, so far this season she has also led the Huskies to a 4-0 start in WWAC league play, along with a second place finish at the MBCI tournament and a third place finish at the Bandits Volleyball tournament. Coach Ryan Vermette states, "Her ability to quickly close seams when blocking combined with the multiple different attacks from the middle has made her a tough player to play against." 

In grade 12, she maintains a 75% academic average.
