“Looking forward to meeting new teammates, and a new coach. I think it’ll be a great experience. Can’t wait to arrive in the fall,” he said.

Rattlers running coach Bill Corcoran called Haywood “a real hidden gem. “

“I'm really looking forward to working with him as he moves up to the college ranks,” Corcoran added later.

In his Grade 11 year in 2019, Haywood was seventh in the senior boys division at cross-country provincials.

Previously in 2019, at the track and field provincials, Haywood was eighth in the junior boys’ 3,000 metres and 10th in the 1,500 metres.

Earlier this year, it was announced that Kyler Dutka of Bienfait would play for the Rattlers men’s basketball program. Dutka’s older sister Tatiana is part of the women’s basketball team.

A future edition of the Mercury will have more on this story.
