Athletes of the Week for August 21-26, 2017

SEI Local Sports would like to thank our area coaches and athletic directors who took the time to honor one or more of their varsity, junior varsity and freshman athletes as an Athlete of the Week (AOW). This edition is for the period of August 21-26, 2017. Every athlete submitted is worthy of this honor and we are proud to showcase all of them!

In addition, a committee has selected a group of varsity level AOWs as Elite Athletes of the Week.  This special list includes one varsity athlete per sport per conference (EIAC and ORVC/Oldenburg).  While some sports are not conference sports in the ORVC, ORVC/Oldenburg athletes participating in such sports are eligible for Elite AOW under the ORVC umbrella.
