This week’s female athlete was awarded to Grade 11, DHS Eagle, Kyla Lindquist. She was chosen for Athlete of the Week for her outstanding skills on the basketball court as a forward. Not only does Lindquist shine on the court, but also for the Eagle’s soccer team as a midfielder and the hockey team as a defensive player. Throughout the two years of high school, and the start of her third, Lindquist favourite memory has simply been playing alongside her teammates for all three sports. Saying this, Lindquist also hopes to travel to OFSAA for basketball, soccer and hockey. Other than spending her time on the field, on the ice or on the basketball court, Lindquist enjoys to relax with her friends and spend time with them.

Braydon Hansson is this week’s Athlete of the Week at Dryden High School. Although only in Grade 11, Hansson has been named captain and quarterback of the football team. Hansson has high hopes for the team to come together to win their next couple games and make the playoffs in the Winnipeg High School Football League. Earlier in September, Hansson earned the WHSFL player of the week while he also currently holds the second most rushing yards in the league.

His favourite memory of his years of being an athlete at DHS is playing a football game in the Bomber’s Stadium in Winnipeg. When he isn’t playing football, Hansson enjoys hanging out with his friends. Later in the year he sprints 100m and 400m with the track and field team. The homecoming game for the football team is 2 p.m. on Oct. 4 at the Harry McMaster field at DHS. Come on out to support the local football team and your male Athlete of the Week, Braydon Hansson!
