Athletes of the Week are Jamarquis Johnson, Chloe Vega, Colby Coker, Mercedes Buhl & Austin Losoya. Coach Zeinert said, “JJ won 5 medals at the District track meet along with leading the boys track team to the district championship. JJ placed first in the Long Jump, Triple Jump, 200 Meter Dash, and the 4×100 Relay. He placed second in the 100 Meter Dash.”. Coach H said, “Chloe finished the district track meet 1st in the 100 meter hurdles and 2nd in pole vault. She did a wonderful job leading the lady cougars in points this past week.” Coach Henderson said, “Colby qualified for the regional tournament for the second year in a row. He showed great resilience finishing strong.” Coach G said, “In the bottom of 7th inning game against Milano, Mercedes hit a single line drive to right field, then stole 2nd and 3rd to become the winning run. She also was a leader in the outfield in the Bremond game on Friday, with 4 outstanding putouts.” Coach Quinney said, “Austin’s performance on the mound got the Cougars back on track in a must win game on Saturday. He went 6 and 2/3 innings, allowing only 3 earned runs, while striking out 9. He also went 2 for 2 at the plate with a walk.” Well done!
