Immanuella Yudo has improved by leaps and bounds since last year’s junior basketball season.
Often staying after practice to work on her game, she has become a real gym rat, and this level of commitment has paid off handsomely, because now she is a floor leader who is learning to control the game by pushing the pace, attacking the basket and finding the finish at the rim. This week in Victoriaville, the Grade 10 student from Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Que. set a career high on offence AND at the same time anchored the defence by keeping calm under pressure and playing tough no-nonsense basketball. Tough as nails – even a bloody lip can’t hold her back! – congratulations to Ella for being named the Athlete of the Week!
