This week we kick off athlete of the week with a some big saves, and a new personal best race time!
First up, we honor Junior Cross Country runner Trista DeLong. She competed recently at the Blackbird Invitational in Voorheesville. She was the top runner for our team, and amazingly posted a lifetime personal best in her first race of the season! We can’t wait to see what the rest of the season has in store for her!
Next up is varsity soccer goalie Joe Lapan. The sophomore is honored by his coach this week for his heroics in stopping several point blank shots that would have proved to be disastrous for the team. The team did sustain seven goals aginst them. But they were hard stops for the goalkeeper. Of the 7 goals scored against Hudson Falls last week, two were penalty kicks, while the remaining were due to defensive breakdowns.
Congratulations to both of this week’s honorees!
