Athlete of the Week
The Tire Recycle Urban Athlete of the Week is Shayla Heinrichs of the Vincent Massey Vikings volleyball team from Brandon.
This 5’8” leftside hitter leads her team in points scored this year. She played a big part in the team claiming second at the West Winnipeg Tournament this past weekend, where she averaged 8 kills and 3 services aces per match. Coach Greg Beckwith states, “Shayla is a quiet lead by example player who is very well respected by her teammates. She works incredibly hard on the court and in the weight room. This work ethic has elevated her to be a stand out grade 11 player at the AAAA level”.
This grade 11 student maintains an 84% average, while also participating in basketball.
