space
Implementing a new program at the high school, athletic director Matt Meronk unveiled the first two student-athletes to be named Athletes of the Week.

“The goal is to highlight the positive things our athletes are doing,” Meronk said about the inception of the recognition.

Marking the debut, Brittney Wald and Brian Cuevas Ruiz are being recognized for their achievements both on and off their respective courts.

Nominated by her varsity basketball coach, Dennis Duchac, Wald was cited for her ability to be a great role model to the younger players in the program. Duchac noted that in their game versus Medford, she scored 19 points in addition to controlling the tempo of the game while playing great defense.

“She continuously works on her game and is always positive at practice and during games,” the coach added.

A member of the boys junior varsity two team, Cuevas Ruiz was nominated by coach Meronk.

“Brian’s leadership and intensity on the floor really helps spark his teammates. He is always on time and works extremely hard in practice,” his coach explained.

In addition, his tremendous work ethic and display of a positive attitude every day helped earn him this recognition.

Meronk also noted Cuevas Ruiz performance in the game versus Medford. He led the team in rebounding and in scoring 11 points.

Part of the expectations for an athlete to be considered is their ability to follow the sports athletic code, have all passing grades, attend classes on time and follow the schools rules.
