Athlete of the week returns, to honor two competitors who helped put their teams over the top!
First up is Track Athlete Alex Varney. The Junior approached his coach before a meet with South Glens Falls and asked if he could help out in any events.
“I joked he should run the 400 hurdles and Alex jumped at it,” said Track Coach Bill Levett. “He wanted to do anything he could to help the team, even if he’d never trained for the event.”
Coach Levett says Alex ended up earning three points in the meet, which put them over the top as a team against South Glens Falls.
Next up is Kayleigh Osterhaudt, a Freshman on the softball team. Coach Kelly McWilliams said her heroics at the plate was a game changer against Warrensburg.
McWilliams says Kayleigh was a perfect four for four with two doubles and two runs batted in. Beyond that, she also had a stolen base against the Burgers.
Congratulations to both of this week’s winners!
