Leading the Cartwright/Nellie McClung/Pilot Mound Tigers hockey team to a league title has earned Ted Lea the nod as the Tri-Star rural high school athlete of the week.
The 5-foot-10 goaltender posted a perfect 6-0 record with a 2.17 goals-against average and .925 save percentage while leading the Tigers to only their second Zone IV league championship in 24 years. Stewart was named the playoff MVP for his efforts.
"Ted was a big part of our overall success and was the key in winning our championship," Tigers coach Darcy Stewart stated in a news release.
Lea, a Grade 12 student who sports a 75 per cent academic average, also takes part in baseball, basketball, cross-country running and volleyball.
