Neelin’s male and female athletes of the year are Quinton Hunter and Paige Thomson.

Paige Thomson and Quinton Hunter will graduate to the university ranks as Neelin’s high school athletes of the year.

Thomson, who has signed on to play CIS basketball with the Victoria Vikes, was named Neelin’s outstanding female athlete for the second straight year, while Hunter, who will play basketball for the Brandon University Bobcats, was named the Spartans’ outstanding male athlete at the school’s athletic awards night Tuesday.

In addition to sharing the Murray H. MacMillan Trophy as athletes of the year, Thomson and Hunter were co-winners of the Jason Hargreaves Memorial Award for leadership and sportsmanship.

"It’s a big honour for me to represent my school and to be known as the top female athlete in my school and it’s just crazy that it’s all coming to an end this year and we’re moving on," Thomson said.

Thomson, who also played badminton and softball, scored 19 points per game and was named MVP for the Spartans’ basketball team. The AAA basketball all-star also helped Neelin win a silver medal at the AAAA volleyball provincials and was a graduating all-star.

Meanwhile, Hunter also averaged 19 points per game while being named the Spartans’ basketball MVP and making the all-Manitoba team, and was also named the most improved player on Neelin’s varsity boys volleyball team. Hunter also played badminton and baseball for Neelin and set a Winnipeg High School Football League record with nine interceptions this season.
