Sunny 97.7 WMOI

Here's the WMOI/WRAM Athletes of the Week for the week ending March 17th, 2019:

The Monmouth-Roseville Titan Athlete of the Week is senior girls track and field athlete, Maggie Huston. Maggie qualified for the Illinois Prep Top Times Meet at the Shirk Center on the campus of Illinois Wesleyan University. She placed 2nd in the 60 meter hurdles at the Titan Invitational and then finished 5th in the same event at the highly competetive Silver Streak Last Chance Meet.

The United Red Storm Athlete of the Week is senior baseball player, Adam Johnson. Adam helped his team to a 13-9 win in its first outing against Fenton. He went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a triple. He also scored a run and knocked in an amazing six more runs. Adam is looking to put up big numbers in his final high school season.

The West Central Heat Athlete of the Week is sophomore girls track and field athlete, Sadie Lenz. With a great performance in the final indoor meet of the season at the Silver Streak Last Chance Meet, Sadie qualified herself for the Illinois Prep Top Times Meet in the triple jump event. Her leap of 33' 9.5" was good enough for 3rd place in a stacked field of 2A and 3A jumpers.

The A-Town Tornado Athlete of the Week is freshman baseball player, Leighton Damewood. Leighton had a great start to his varsity baseball career in a season opening win over Midland. He went 3-for-4 with a double and five rbis. He backed that up with a 2-for-3 game in a loss to Winnebago.

The Galesburg Silver Streak Athlete of the Week is senior softball player, Rylee Neal. Rylee's 2-out, bases-loaded double scored three important runs as the Streaks held on to beat Orion 8-4 in their season-opener at Galesburg High School. Rylee's energy and senior leadership that she brings to the diamond is going to be important for the Streaks to make a postseason run in 2019.

Congrats to all of these student-athletes!! Thanks to our AOTW sponsors, MC Sport and More, McDonough Telephone Cooperative (mdtc), Tompkins State Bank and Galesburg Toyota!!

Sunny 97.7 WMOI

Here's the WMOI/WRAM Athletes of the Week for the week ending March 3rd, 2019:

The Monmouth-Roseville Titan Athlete of the Week is sophomore girls track and field athlete, Ryley Huston. Ryley got her season off to a fantastic start with a great peformance at an indoor meet at Illinois College. Her throw of 34' 1" placed her 4th out of 42 throwers in the shot put event in a field that included many athletes from Class 3A schools.

The United Red Storm Athlete of the Week is junior girls basketball player, Jerzi Johnson. Jerzi's hustle on the court all season long earned her a spot on the Lincoln Trail All-Conference Honorable Mention list. Her work in the classroom also landed her on the Lincoln Trail Conference All-Academic team as well.

The West Central Heat Athlete of the Week is sophmore girls basketball player, Mady Reed. Mady's all-around talent on the basketball court all season long earned the respect of opposing coaches and got her placed on the Lincoln Trail All-Conference 1st team. She also worked just as hard in the classroom and her GPA earned her a spot on the LTC All-Academic team as well.

The A-Town Tornado Athlete of the Week is sophomore boys basketball player, Kaden Jones.

His 39, 3-pointers was good enough for the 2nd highest total on the team.

The Galesburg Silver Streak Athlete of the Week is senior boys track and field athlete, Deante Pulley. Deante got his indoor track season off to a great start with a pair of top-five finishes at the highly competetive Charger Invitation in Champaign.
