Named student-athlete of the month
A standout on the volleyball court has been recognized by a Summerside school
Senior Brandon Hastings of Summerside was recently named Three Oaks Senior High School’s Greco Pizza/Capt. Sub student-athlete of the month.
Brandon, who is currently playing the guard position in senior AA boys’ basketball, was a key contributor to the Three Oaks Axemen winning their fourth straight P.E.I. School Athletic Association Senior AAA Boys Volleyball League championship in November. Brandon, the 18-year-old son of Jim Hastings and Sherry McNeill, was named a league all-star and the most valuable player of the provincial championship tournament.
“Brandon is one of the best setters on P.E.I. for his age group,” said Axemen head coach Dale MacDougall. “He is able to take a bad pass and turn it into a great set, which led to many kills for us this season.
“Brandon’s overall league play and provincial record in his three years as an Axemen is an impressive 38-0 (won-lost).”
Brandon will also represent Three Oaks in singles and doubles badminton in the spring.
Outside of school, Brandon plays centre for the Summerside Crunch of the Razzy’s P.E.I. Junior C Hockey League, and is a member of the provincial under-18 lacrosse team.
Brandon plans to attend Holland College to study sport and leisure management. He also hopes to play Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association men’s volleyball with the Hurricanes.
