Two RDPC senior girls’ basketball team members named Basketball Manitoba provincial all-stars

R.D. Parker Collegiate’s participants in Basketball Manitoba’s graduating all-star games and awards ceremony in Winnipeg April 13 came home with more than just good memories, as the school’s student-athletes garnered all-star recognition and a $1,000 scholarship.

Ashley Williams, who was on the roster for the A, AA and AAA graduating girls’ all-star game along with teammate Tressa McDonald but couldn’t play because of an injury, was one of five players named to the first A/AA/AAA female all-Manitoba team, while Emma Deibert was named to the second team.

Kyle Tomchuk, who played in the A, AA and AAA boys’ graduating all-star game, was one of four recipients of a $1,000 Donovan Gayle Scholarship, which recognizes players who best exemplify Donovan’s attributes of strength, resilience, positive attitude and perseverance. The scholarships are funded by the annual Balling for the Cure basketball tournament held every August in Winnipeg, which has raised more than $25,000 for Cancer Care Manitoba and the scholarships since 2014.
