• Congratulations once again to Jay Ort.

    "Jay Ort of the Carman Cougars cross country team has been named one of the Manitoba high school athletes of the week.

    Ort, the Tire Recycle Rural High School Athlete of the Week, is a 5-foot-10 runner who won his fourth consecutive gold medal at the Provincial Cross Country Championships. He is undefeated in MHSAA cross country competition throughout his four years of high school.

    “One of his main talents leading to his success is that he can get out of bed in the morning to train,” said Cougars coach Lyle Myers. “He is an extremely hard worker, which has paid off with this tremendous accomplishment of winning four consecutive championships.”

    Ort is a Grade 12 student who maintains a 97% average, while also participating in badminton, and track & field."
