April 17th Athletes of the Week

April 17, 2007 Athletes of the Week


Even with the cold and rainy weather this past week, there were many great performances across the state during track meets.  The awardees this week both had their best performances ever at the invitationals in which they participated.


Girls Athlete of the Week


Anna Bostrom – Woodford County


Though she is just a freshman, Anna is a veteran to running in Kentucky, finishing second at the Class AAA Kentucky State Cross Country Meet last fall.  On Saturday, she won the Girls 1600 at the Invitational of the South with a time of 5:14.  This performance is the 2nd best time in the 1600 across the state and a 10 second PR for her.


Boys Athlete of the Week


Will Simmons – Saint Xavier


This junior competed at the Taco Bell Classic in South Carolina on Saturday.  He improved his best long jump by over one foot with his jump of 22-04.50, which is the best in the state.  His jump was good enough for fifth place at the Taco Bell Classic, a popular southeast region meet.  He also ran a PR in the 200m Dash with his time of 22.86.


Congratulations to both of these athletes for being recognized as the Athlete of the Week.
