Athlete of the Week

Maggi Armstrong

WHS Cadence Athlete of the week is a new tradition that we are starting here at our school. Monday morning each week the whole Cadence news staff will come together to select four candidates. We will not be selecting teams as a whole but we may select a doubles tennis team, the outfield for our softball or baseball teams, the offensive or defensive lines in football, or a relay team for track.

 Voting will begin every Monday at 9 am and end Thursday at 9 am.  The winner of the poll on our website will be given the title of WHS Cadence Athlete of the week.  They will also receive a free t-shirt that says Athlete of the Week from CJL Sports. 

If you have any Athlete recommendations please email [email protected] Please include the Athletes name and what they did to deserve the nomination.
