The Female Athlete of the Week is Julianna Colon. “Juju” has had an awesome season, most recently leading her area 7th ranked Lady Kougar track and field team to two Twin Lakes Relays titles, an NCC split with a win over Griffith and another Gene Edmonds Relays championship. At Gene Edmonds, she lead off the gold medal winning 4×100 relay team in a time of 52.4. She anchored the winning sprint medley team with a 64 low 400 split, with the team winning in 1:55.7. She also anchored the 4×800 and 4×400 relay teams to important third place finishes. On the previous Wednesday, in an NCC split with Hobart and Griffith, she anchored the overall winning 4×800 relay team in 10:51.0 in an excellent split of 2:40.3, and also had seconds in the 400 (62.7) vs Hobart’s state qualifier, Edwards, and in the 4×100 and 4×400 relays. Her leadership and work ethic is a major reason for KV having another excellent season. Congratulations, Julianna !
