The Cab Clothing YRHS Male Athlete of the Month for April, Darren Tillman, is a Grade 12 student who has participated in several sports during his four years at YRHS. He has loved curling since he was about twelve years old.
This year being his final year of high school curling, Tillman really wanted to make it to provincials which he did. His team won gold at districts and at regionals but, unfortunately, lost out in provincials.
Tillman also enjoys badminton which he picked up at Springside School. In his final year of high school, he wanted to do better than the previous year. He won four gold medals and one silver medal so far this season and recently won gold at districts and silver at regionals held in Notre Dame. He is now off to provincials in Melfort and hoping to do well there.
Other activities Tillman likes to participate in are intramurals, playing guitar, playing tennis, golfing and hanging out with friends.
His plans for the summer are to work as a maintenance person at the Good Spirit Bible Camp, and his plans for the next year are to go to SIAST in Moose Jaw for drafting school for three years and eventually find a career in drafting.
