The first Athlete of the Week for our winter sports season goes to Stone Thompson of River. Stone a streak shooter for the Pilots was as hot as a fire-cracker against Barnesville. He scored 33-points, including seven baskets from beyond the arch to earn this weeks Athlete of the Week.
Only area athletes from Hundred, Magnolia, Paden City, River and Valley are eligible to win the athlete of the week, and can only do it one time, until they reach playoffs as well as conference tournaments.
We also will try to pick the most improved player from each school, week after week, too.
