Mike Tucker from UVic reports on Vikes 6'4" wing Ryan MacKinnon, a first-year member of the UVic Vikes men's basketball team has been announced as a finalist for the 2007 Sport B.C. Male High School Athlete of the Year award. Sport BC annually recognizes the outstanding athletic achievements of athletes in 16 different categories, and is the longest-standing sport recognition event in the country. MacKinnon is being recognized for his athletic achievements in 2007, when he was a member of the Highland Secondary basketball team. The Comox native is the third Vikes recruit to be a finalist in the past four years. Former Vikes forward Jacob Doerksen won the award in 2005, and fourth year guard Mitch Gudgeon won the award in 2004. In 2007, MacKinnon guided Highland to the AAA Provincial championships after a fourth place finish at the Island Championships. MacKinnon was named First Team All-star at the Island Championships, and also picked up North Island MVP honours. He was also a nominee for the All-Canadian game, and a member of the B.C. Under-17 Provincial team. Midway through his rookie year with the Vikes, MacKinnon is averaging 6.0 points, 1.2 steals, 1.5 assists, and has started 13 games. The 6-foot-4 guard's best game of the season came in a 92-76 Vikes victory over no. 2-ranked UBC. MacKinnon scored a Vikes-high 20 points, on 4-for-7 three-point shooting, and also dished out seven assists. MacKinnon is up against B.C. high school javelin champion Kyle Nielsen of Langley, and wrestling champion Manjot Sandhu of Lord Tweedsmuir. The winner will be announced March 5 at the 42nd Sports B.C. Awards gala, taking place at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver.
