Freshman Jenna Mertz has once again been selected as the Female Athlete of the Week!

Jenna Mertz has once again been named the Warrior Watch’s Female Athlete of the Week for the week of 05/16/2021. She was chosen for her performance in last week’s ICC track and field meet. Jenna placed first in both of her individual events: the 100-meter dash and the 400-meter dash. She was also able to help the 4 x 400-meter relay team capture a first-place victory at the ICC meet and break the school record. 

One of Jenna’s teammates in the 4 x 400-meter relay, Madison Kephart, said, “Jenna is a good athlete and she is a key part of our team for the 4 x 400. We are really excited to compete together at districts this year.”
