Senior has been fixture with volleyball, basketball teams
A familiar fixture on the volleyball and basketball court has been chosen as the Greco Pizza/Capt. Sub student-athlete of the month at Kinkora Regional High School (KRHS).
Grade 12 student Rebecca Green has been recognized with the award.
Rebecca played the middle position in helping the Blazers win KRHS’s first P.E.I. Senior A Girls Volleyball League championship since 1991 in November. She also played the post position and was a captain of the basketball team and competed in spring volleyball.
KRHS senior girls’ basketball coach Norah Pendergast praised the leadership skills of the 18-year-old daughter of Steven and Marcia Green of Borden-Carleton.
“Her maturity and tenacity on the court made Rebecca a great role model for other players,” said Pendergast. “Rebecca, being a very hard worker, was an excellent defensive player and powerful under the basket, hitting the boards and scoring put-backs.”
Rebecca is also involved in school life, serving as president of the student council.
Rebecca plans to study sciences at St. Francis Xavier in Antigonish, N.S., following graduation from high school in June.
