The Female Athlete of the Week is sophomore cross country runner Brittany Kent. Brittany recently earned All Northwest Crossroads Conference First Team honors with a top ten finish in last Saturday’s NCC meet held at Lowell High School. Her time of 21:07 placed her ninth overall. She has led this young lady Kougar team all season and will continue to do as Sectionals roll around next weekend. Congratulations, Brittany!
The Male Athlete of the Week is senior cross country runner Bryce Gawronski. Bryce led the KVHS boys’ cross country team on Saturday October 4, 2014, placing 6th in the NCC title meet in 16:54. Gawronski was the first finisher not from state-ranked Munster, a feat that he demonstrated in conference double dual meets. Going in to the meet, KV held second place. Bryce’s placing on Saturday contributed to a team fourth place finish for the meet, high enough to allow the Kougars to tie for second place overall for the season with Highland. Congratulations, Bryce!
