Fans, all of your emails make the athlete of the
week a great thing for SVCsportszone. Remember
to send in next week's nominations as football,
volleyball, and cross country postseasons continue
to produce some great clutch performances!
Unioto's Adrian Ross
Westfall's Suzy Gantz
After two weeks of finishing runner-up to a pair
of five-touchdown performances by Jordan Elam
and Colton Morris, the Unioto freshman runs his
way to the winner's cirlce. Ross ran a 16:34 in
yesterday's regional cross country meet to finish
fourth individually. His run also led the Unioto
team to a second-place finish - a finish good
enough to allow Unioto to go back to next
week's state meet at Scioto Downs.

Over the past few weeks, Ross finished second
in the Ross County Meet and then won both the
Scioto Valley Conference league meet and the
District Meet.
The Westfall star had a huge week in postseason
volleyball. In the district semifinals against
Southeastern, Gantz recorded 17 kills, 15 digs,
and three aces. She followed that up Saturday
with 24 kills, 10 digs, three blocks, and four aces
in a thrilling five-set district championship win over
top-seeded Wheelersburg. In that championship
match, every time Westfall was in jeopardy of
seeing its season end, Gantz came up with a big
kill or a big ace to lift the Mustangs back to the
sweet-sixteen for the 10th time in 12 years.

Westfall will now play last year's state runner-up,
Alexander, this Thursday night at the Convo in

Thomas Sischka, Piketon (Cross Country): His
17:23 in Saturday's regional run gave him a 19th
place finish - just three spots off what he needed to
run at Scioto Downs next weekend.
Jarrod Cyrus, Unioto (Football): The Unioto
running back rushed 21 times for 194 yards and
two touchdowns against the SVC champions this
past Friday night.
Jimmy Starr, Adena (Football): The Adena back
rushed for 118 yards and two touchdowns on just
13 carries in a win over Zane Trace. Starr broke
free for the play of the night - an incredible 80-yard
run that included Starr's power and quickness
running through, around, and away from the ZT
defense to help lead his Warriors to a senior night
Colton Morris, PV (Football): In a week that
the PV offensive line dominated SE, Morris put
up another huge night on only 20 carries. He
rushed for 167 yards to put him just shy of the
1,800 yard mark for his senior season.
Taylor Hatfield, Zane Trace (Cross Country):
Last week's winner was back at it again this week as
she crossed the line in Saturday's regional in 19:07 to
finish third - plenty good enough to run in next
week's state meet.
Cadie Cory, Adena (Volleyball): The frehsman
setter continues to lead a very balanced Adena attack.
This week she dished out 29 and 24 assists in the
semifnal and finals respectively to help lead Adena to
another district championship.
Megan Fultz, Huntington (Volleyball): The
sophomore had 19 total kills, 17 total digs, and 3 total
aces in two district matches this week. Huntington
beat Coal Grove in straight sets on Wednesday night;
however, the green and white dropped a straight-set
decision against Alexander on Saturday.
Olivia Arledge, SE (Volleyball): As one of the
league's brighest young stars, the SE frehsman
recorded 12 kills, two blocks, and two aces in their
loss to WF. The match marked SE's first district
appearance since 1996.
Congrats to this week's winners!
