Athletes of the Week
(For the week Sept. 18-24)
McKenzie Burnett, Astoria
The Astoria girls cross country squad was the top Division 3 team in the Sept. 23 3-Course Challenge meet at Camp Rilea, which included 77 high schools. Burnett, a senior, had the best finish for the Lady Fishermen, placing eighth out of 236 runners on the 4,500-meter Easy course (20 minutes, 7 seconds).
Logan Fischer, Warrenton
The Warriors snapped their 12-game losing streak with a 41-35 win at Nestucca Sept. 22, and Warrenton’s “Beast Mode” was a big reason. Fischer, a junior, had 209 yards rushing on 29 attempts, and scored four touchdowns. Included was a 30-yard interception return for a score. The previous week, Fischer ran for 165 yards and two touchdowns in a loss to Neah-Kah-Nie.
