Crocus Plains Regional Secondary School
Crocus Plains Regional Secondary School is pleased to name Grade 11 student, Sienna Luckins, as their High School Featured Athlete.
Sienna is currently having a big impact on her 12 – 4 varsity girls basketball team at Crocus Plains. In the month of January, Sienna is leading the team with 3.6 deflections, 4 steals, and is a second leading guard in rebounding with 4.6 rebounds per game.
Sienna has an academic average of 81%, and her community and school involvement involves playing on the Crocus Rugby team as well as playing Team Manitoba Rugby.
Quote: Coach's Quote: "Sienna is a fantastic teammate who cares so much about the team and her teammates. She shines on the defensive end because she competes every possession. Her on-ball defense gives the opposing teams fits which has helped our team create turnovers and high percentage scoring opportunities. On the other end, she's been having an impact as well by scoring lay-ups in transition and knocking down timely three's. With the impact that she has made and the growth she has made throughout the season, I'm really excited to see what she can do as she continues to develop."
École secondaire Neelin High School
École secondaire Neelin High School is pleased to name Grade 12 student, Piper Robinson, as their High School Featured Athlete.
Piper is expected to be a leader for the Varsity Basketball team this year as one of our 3 returning players off of the provincial championship team from last year.

While Piper is busy on the court with basketball and volleyball, she has also been able to maintain an academic average of 80%.
Coach’s Quote: “Piper is an extremely hard worker, dedicates
herself to constantly improving her skills in practice and is the engine that
moves our offence during games. She has earned the respect and trust of her
teammates and coaches alike, and clearly the basketball community in general as
she was named a tournament all-star at the Crocus Plains preseason tournament
earlier this month. We expect a big
season from Piper this year.”
