Athlete of the Week
Viking Track and Field standout Celie Mans is Coast Radio Sports’ Athlete of the Week.
The sophomore distance runner won two Far West District championships last week in Brookings. Mans claimed victory in the 3,000 meters with a time of 11:04.49; and in the 1,500 meters in 4:59.21. Mans also ran a leg in the 2nd place 4-by-400 relay team. The wins will put her in the 4A State Championship meet at Hayward Field in Eugene for the second straight year.
Honorable mention: Courtney King. The Viking Senior set two personal records at the Far West District meet, placing third in the 1,500 meters and fifth in the 3,000. Perhaps her most important contribution to the team according to coaches was her leadership role, encouraging other athletes to remain motivated on the way to the Viking Girls winning the district championship.
