    Jesse Fedak Commits to CMU Blazer's Men's Basketball for 2020-21 Season



    It will be a reunion of sorts for Jesse Fedak and CMU head coach Scott Martin, who combined as part of the Team Manitoba Provincial U17 boys program last summer. Though the 6'4 forward was unable to complete the senior year of his high school campaign with top-ranked Sturgeon Heights this season, Fedak helped his Huskies to the 2020 Zone Championship and ended his career with a selection to the 'AAAA' Boys Graduating All-star team at the Basketball Manitoba Awards earlier this month.

    "Jesse has had top-coaching throughout his high school and club progression and I think he will contribute for us right away," said Martin of Fedak. "He is a very smart and unselfish player and we're very happy to have him joining our program."

    Despite the abrupt ending to his Grade 12 season, Fedak has built an accomplished high school basketball resumé while at Sturgeon Heights. With Fedak on the court, the Huskies captured the Manitoba JV Provincial Championship where Fedak took home Most Valuable Player honours. He also earned the Player's Choice Award in 2019.

    "I would like to thank my family for supporting me throughout my basketball journey as well as all the coaches I have had over the years," said Fedak. "Special thanks to Marlin Kraus, Evan Cox and Steve Tackie for pushing me to be better and to develop my game. I'm very excited to continue playing basketball with CMU this season."

    As a club player, Fedak has won a Provincial Club Championship with the Junior Bisons, a program that he has been part of for the past 7 seasons.

    The CMU Blazers compete in the Northern Intercollegiate Athletics Conference (NIAC) as well as the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference (MCAC).
