Here's the WMOI/WRAM Athletes of the Week for the week ending May 12th, 2019:

The Monmouth-Roseville Titan Athlete of the Week is senior baseball player, Addison Fletcher. Addison came up big on the mound, and at the plate, in a win over Clark County, Missouri at Community Field in Burlington. He got the pitching win, going the first five innings, giving up just one hit, no runs and struck out six batters. He also went 2-for-3 at the plate, smashing a double and knocking in four runs.

The United Red Storm Athlete of the Week is sophomore softball player, Riley Tyrrell. Riley pitched all three Lincoln Trail Conference contests last week, getting wins in two of them. She threw a total of 21 innings, only giving up a total of five earned runs. During that span, Riley struck out 37 hitters. She also helped herself out at the plate, going 5-for-10.

The West Central Heat Athlete of the Week is sophomore softball player, Reagan Spence. Reagan earned three wins in the pitching circle last week. One of those wins clinched a Lincoln Trail Conference championship. During the 3-game winning streak, Reagan threw 16 innings, only giving up three earned runs and racking up 13 strikeouts with only four walks.

The A-Town Tornado Athlete of the Week is freshman softball player, Rylee Cooper. Rylee was 5-for-10 out of the leadoff spot in three games last week. She also scored a pair of runs, a stat in which she leads the Tornadoes this season. Rylee also leads the team in batting average and on-base and Slugging percentage.

The Galesburg Silver Streak Athlete of the Week is junior girls track and field athlete, Tegan Rehn. After her great performance at the Metamora Sectional meet, Tegan will run at the Class 2A IHSA State Finals meet in Charleston for the first time. She garnered victories in two events in Metamora, crossing the finish line in the 100 meter high hurdles and followed that up with a win in the 300 meter low hurdle race.

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!!
