Athletes of the Week for October 8-13

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 October 8-13, 2018. 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 two or three varsity athletes per gender, per conference (EIAC and ORVC/Independent).  The number of Elites selected (2 or 3) is based on the number of varsity level submissions for each gender of each conference.  The number may be reduced if the committee cannot reach a majority decision for a selection.

While some athletes participate in sports not recognized as conference sports by the EIAC and ORVC, those athletes are still eligible for Elite AOW consideration under the EIAC or ORVC/Independent umbrellas.

ELITE ATHLETES OF THE WEEK

Congratulations to this group of outstanding athletes selected by committee as our Elite Athletes of the Week for October 8-13, 2018.

Mackenzie Ewing of East Central

  • Level/Sport: Varsity Volleyball
  • Athlete’s year/position: Senior Outside Hitter
  • Submitted by: Cassie Laker
  • Submitter’s position: Head Coach
  • Athlete’s accomplishments: Mack had a dominating performance in the post season. She helped lead our offense in every way. She was 24/28 serving with 2 aces. The more impressive number is on the attack. Out of 145 attempts in 2 matches, she only made 17 errors. Of those 145 attempts, she had 61 kills. Against Columbus East, she set a new school record and personal record for number of kills in a match at 31. She finished the season breaking another school record with 1121 career kills. Defensively, she added 32 digs, which included another personal best with 17 digs against Columbus East. She also added 3 assist blocks in each set (total of 6), matching her season best in both matches.
  • Submitter’s personal comments: Mack was a dominating player for us. She was dynamic at the net and was always someone the other team had to worry about. She can hit out of any position, including the back row and was continuously a threat for us. We will miss her power, her athleticism, and her leadership next year!
