Vicknair named Athlete of the Week
McMinnville junior Madison Vicknair was named The Oregonian’s High School Athlete of the Week for the week of Sept. 30—Oct. 4.
Vicknair, an outside hitter on the Grizzlies’ volleyball team, won the award for her performance against Newberg (Sept. 26), Forest Grove (Oct. 1) and Tigard (Oct. 3) in that week. She recorded 53 kills, 10 service aces, 36 digs and six blocks during those three contests.
McMinnville won all three games during that span, part of a five-game winning streak the Grizzlies are currently own. Mac defeated both Newberg and Tigard in five games.
Vicknair received 722 votes, or 35.8 percent of all votes cast, in an online poll against six other student-athletes from Oregon high schools.
Vicknair continued her strong season on Oct. 8, when she recorded 11 kills for the Grizzlies in a 25-12, 25-20, 25-19 victory over Hillsboro.
McMinnville (9-2 Class 6A Pacific Conference) travels to Tualatin today at 6:45 p.m. to face the Timberwolves. The Grizzlies’ last home game of the season is Thursday against Glencoe at 7 p.m.
