Denmark senior Hayden Konkol has been selected as the RallyAroundUs Athlete of the Week for the week of June 13-19 after a statewide vote on WisSports.net.
There were 5,875 total votes this week. Konkol topped all vote getters with 2,509 votes. Milton's Jack Campion came in second with 2,048 votes.
Konkol delivered one of the biggest hits in Denmark baseball history this past week as the Vikings captured the Division 2 State Championship. First in a 9-8 win over Pewaukee in the semifinals, the senior outfielder went two for four with a triple, RBI and two runs scored. Denmark scored seven runs in the top of the seventh inning to go ahead 9-6 going into the last half-inning. Konkol, a St. Cloud State commit, added another two hits and two RBIs in the 6-5 win over Jefferson in the Division 2 state title game. He saved his best at-bat for last as he came to the plate with runners on first and second with one out, tied in the bottom of the seventh. Konkol doubled to right field, driving in the winning run in walk-off fashion.
