Brandon Wheat Kings forward Jayce Hawryluk of Roblin and Brandon Eagles gymnast Isabela Onyshko were among the runners-up for last night’s Sport Manitoba junior athletes of the year awards.
Hawryluk, who helped Canada win bronze at the world under-18 hockey championship on Sunday, was one of nine finalists for junior male athlete of the year honour, which went to triathlete Tyler Mislawchuk of Oak Bluff. Hawryluk led the Wheat Kings in scoring with 64 points — including 24 goals — in 59 games in the regular season and was second in the playoffs with five goals and 12 points in eight games.
Meanwhile, Onyshko won a silver medal in her floor routine at her second World Cup event in Croatia on Sunday. The 15-year-old Onyshko was first at provincials and western Canadians last season and went on to place fourth at nationals.
