Athlete of the Week
April 29 – May 5, 2013

This week’s AOTW goes to an athlete who has risen to all athletic challenges thrown at her this year. Katie has spent the year constantly working on her leadership on the sports field and harnessing her competitive spirit to make those around her better.

Coach Kidwell writes: “Katie Comeaux is a multi-event athlete who is a force for others to reckon with in the Field or on the Track. Katie earned the Athlete of the Week recognition this week not only for her excellent technique and commitment to excellence, but perhaps more importantly for her mental toughness and fiery competitiveness. Battling a shoulder injury, Katie got toughed and pushed through on Saturday – to the tune of event winning and personal record throws in the shot put (32 feet) and discus (106 feet)!”
