Grantsburg freshman Whitney Myers has been selected as the RallyAroundUs Athlete of the Week for the week of June 6-12 after a statewide vote on WisSports.net.
There were 1,694 total votes this week. Myers topped all vote getters with 863 votes. Kaukuana's Karly Meredith came in second with 437 votes.
Myers pitched a pair of complete games in the Division 4 State Tournament this past weekend. In a 12-5 win over Luther in the semifinals, the freshman hurler struck out seven batters in seven innings. She also went one for three with a walk and three RBIs. Myers then pitched another complete game, recording the 3-2 win over Horicon in the Division 4 State Championship. She limited Horicon to six hits and two runs, one earned. Myers also went one for three with a solo home run in the third inning, proving to be the difference.
