Athletes Of The Week for August 26-31


Alex Disbro of East Central

  • Level/Sport: Varsity Volleyball
  • Athlete’s year/position: Senior Libero
  • Submitted by: Cassie Laker
  • Submitter’s position: Head Coach
  • Athlete’s accomplishments: Last week, Alex helped lead our team in the back court and from the service line. She went 29/33 serving over 6 matches with 3 aces. She is taking more risks serving and, while they didn’t immediately lead to a point, what the stats don’t show is how often the opponent was out of system because of her ability to place the serve. Offensively, she also added 16 assists. Where Alex thrives is in the back court, passing. She led the team last week in receptions and digs. She passed an incredible 2.5 to target (out of 3.0) on serve receive, with her best passing coming against the stronger competition at Brownstown Central. She was 46/47 on serve receive. Defensively, she added 50 digs for the week in 5 matches.
  • Submitter’s personal comments: Alex is always working hard and trying to get better. She is on track to break the EC single season record for digs because she continues to push herself to read the hitters. Alex is very coachable and always takes in any advice the coaches give her.

Brady Spangler of East Central

  • Level/Sport: Varsity Boys Soccer
  • Athlete’s year/position: Junior Midfielder
  • Submitted by: Bradley Black
  • Submitter’s position: Head Coach
  • Athlete’s accomplishments: Brady scored 4 goals last week, 2 each against Connersville and South Dearborn. He now has 7 goals on the season.
  • Submitter’s personal comments: Brady is working hard and is turning into a major offensive threat. He is not only a great finisher, but also sees the field very well. He is a tremendous passer and I look forward to seeing him progress throughout the season.

Jill Wilhelm of East Central

  • Level/Sport: JV Volleyball
  • Athlete’s year/position: Sophomore Setter
  • Submitted by: Josie Andres
  • Submitter’s position: Junior Varsity Coach
  • Athlete’s accomplishments: Jill has quickly grown behind the serving line as well as filling the role of the primary setter. She is leading the team in both aces and assists this year.
  • Submitter’s personal comments: With it only being a few weeks into the season, I am excited to watch her play continue to grow to potential varsity level.
