Pierce County Herald's Athletes of the Week: Ellsworth's Logan Armstrong, Ellsworth's Abby Giese, Ellsworth's Olivia Helmer and EPC's Mark Anderson
The Pierce County Herald's Athletes of the Week are Ellsworth's Logan Armstrong, Ellsworth's Abby Giese, Ellsworth's Olivia Helmer and Elmwood/Plum City's Mark Anderson.
Armstrong came on in relief of starting pitcher Brady Yanish and shut down Prescott's attempts to rally in a 7-1 win last week. He also had a key hit which scored an insurance run for the Panthers.
Giese helped EHS's softball team win four games in 24 hours last week. Ellsworth swept Amery in a doubleheader and beat rival Durand and Lake Holcombe/Cornell in Durand a day later. In the second Amery game alone Giese hit two home runs, a triple and had five RBIs.
Helmer had her best jump of the season so far in her final Fuller Invitational track and field meet as a senior and won the triple jump.
In the same meet, Anderson won the pole vault, clearing the bar in 10 feet, six inches.
