Poynette junior Casey Fountain has been selected as the Athlete of the Week for the week of June 3 through June 9.

There was a total of 2,405 votes cast this week. Casey finished first with 883 votes. Seymour's Chloe Evans finished second with a total of 643 votes.

Casey was beyond exceptional as she led the Poynette softball team to a Division 3 championship last weekend. Through two games on the mound, Casey allowed only two hits in 14 innings. She herself had four hits alone in the championship game.

Poynette squared off with Prescott in the semi-finals, and Casey was brilliant. She pitched a complete game, allowing only two hits, and striking out 14 as her team won 7-0. From the plate, she walked twice and recorded a stolen base. 

In the championship matchup with Campbellsport, Casey was even better. She again pitched a complete game shutout and only allowed one hit. Casey added 13 strikeouts in the 4-0 championship win. To add to her dominance on the mound, Casey went a perfect four of four from the plate.
