Parker Fritz 8/30/14

Our Tyler Roth/WKVI Athlete of the Week for this week is Parker Fritz, a member of the Football Team at West Central High School.

Parker led his team to a 34-0 upset of the Culver Cavaliers on opening night of the new season, helping his team send a resounding statement to their former Head Coach, Darren Rodriguez, now the Coach of the Cavaliers, and giving the Trojans new Head Coach, Marc Hall, his first win at West Central.

The 5-9, 170-pound Senior had a career night on both sides of the ball. On offense, he carried the ball 16 times for 242 yards and three touchdowns and also picked up 34 yards on a pass reception.

On defense, Parker again showed great leadership with 6 tackles, including one for loss, one for a quarterback sack and one that forced a fumble!

Parker is the son of Jamie and Shannon Fritz and will be featured next week here on the “Saturday Sportsline with Nathan Welter” on K99.3 and will have a featured picture and story on wkvi.com.

Gabby Behny 8/23/14

Our first Tyler Roth/WKVI Athlete of the Week for the 2014-15 season is Gabby Behny, a member of the Girls Golf Team at Winamac High School.

Gabby led her team to the Bi-County Girls Golf Tournament Championship last weekend copping Medalist honors in the Starke-Pulaski County shootout. After a slow start with a 50 on the front 9 at the challenging Moss Creed Country Club Course, she put together a 42 on the back 9 to lead her team to the championship for the first time in 3 years.

The Sophomore had to fight for the #1 spot on her team and gained that spot by shooting in the 40’s for 3 consecutive meets to open the season. She is also a member of the Winamac Softball team.

Gabby is the daughter of John and LeeAnne Behny and will be featured next week here on “The Saturday Sportsline with Nathan Welter” on K99.3 and will have a featured picture and story on wkvi.com.
