R.D. Parker Collegiate badminton player Morgan Cordell was named the Manitoba High Schools Athletic Association Tri-Star rural high school athlete of the week April 24 after winning the doubles division in Flin Flon and placing second in Gimli the weekend before last.
Cordell, a 6'0" Grade 12 student, is a "sponge for information," said RDPC Trojans badminton coach Todd Harwood.
"He is one of those athletes that when given feedback he is able to incorporate it into his game almost immediately," Harwood says. "He is a really hard worker and that feeds the other athletes on the team to do the same."
Cordell maintains an 84 per cent average and was also a member of the Trojans volleyball team this school year.
