Zenith Vanstone of the Carman/Miami Cougars fast pitch team is the Manitoba High School Athlete of the Week. Vanstone was a huge contributor to the Cougars fast pitch team this season. Her versatile ability to play any position was a massive asset, along with her consistent reliability at bats. In 16 plate appearances, she had only one strikeout, nine doubles, and one triple which lead the Cougars to clench a spot in the zone tournament. Coach Courtney Milljour states, "Zen is a force within the sport.  Her natural ability to read the ball, willingness to help out any team member, and undeniable work ethic is constantly shown on and off the field.  Within this past year alone, this multi-sport athlete helped contribute to the zone 4 volleyball banner, win the Carman Co-ed badminton tournament, qualify as finalist in badminton zones, and competed at the Provincial badminton tournament.  To see her passion, drive, and dedication to all sports is not only outstanding, but motivational to everyone." In grade 11 she maintains a 90% academic average, while also participating in cross country and track and field.
