The Dairy Farmers of Manitoba High School Athlete of the Week is Gradyn Ross of the Treherne Collegiate.

In his final year at Treherne Collegiate, he is a valuable cog in many of the Tiger's sports programs.  He was a member of the golf and cross-country teams this fall and is currently having great seasons for both the volleyball and hockey teams.

A setter/power hitter for the Tigers, he has helped lead the Tigers to the top of Zone 6 standings and a spot at the Provincial Qualifiers for the "A" Boys Volleyball Provincials. Coach Darrel Vandenbussche states, "He has helped the team climb up the standings the last month and earn an upset over the Glenboro Panthers this past week. Gradyn had a beautiful game dispersing the ball and coming up with some clutch hits.  Defense is his specialty, refusing to let any ball hit the floor that is sent in his direction."

He is also a key contributor for the Pembina Tigers hockey team who have started the season with an unblemished 5-0 record.  Brady has 4 goals and 4 assists to this point in the season and is known for his tenacious forecheck and speed on the ice.

This Grade 12 students currently maintains an 80% academic average.
