As fall sports wind down and winter sports heat up, the spotlight turns to top student athletes. Cross country meets have come to a close, leaving football, long-distance runners and soccer players in the limelight. Notable athletes include Preston Wright and Tyjuan Leslie-Farmer, who excelled in their recent regional semifinal football games, and Selvin Banegas Rodas, who led Bellevue to an undefeated record in football.
The public is encouraged to vote once an hour for their favorite athlete and share the poll on social media so friends and family can join in. Voting ends on Thursday at 2 pm, and the results will be announced on Friday morning.
The achievements of numerous other athletes from various sports are recognized as well, such as Hunter Duncan in football, Cedric McFadden in cross country and Gianna Meccia in soccer. With such a wide range of talent, it is clear that these top student-athletes are making an impact in their sports and should be a pleasure to watch in future competitions.
