The Dairy Farmers of Manitoba High School Athlete of the Week is Nixon Carriere of the Garden City Gophers baseball team.

Carriere had a really strong baseball season leading the Gophers to a KPAC and Provincial Championship.  His play at the Provincial Championships earned him MVP honors.  Coach Rhys Morris states, "Nixon hit 5 home runs over the season, especially a huge home run in the bottom of the 1st inning to spark a huge offensive game for the Gophers. Nixon was a huge leader throughout the course of the season and was a staple in our lineup, hitting 4 hole every game. Nixon also pitched a gem in the semi-final vs. Steinbach, going 5 strong innings". 

This grade 12 student will be graduating this month and moving onto play baseball at the collegiate level.
