For the fifth straight year, the Davis Clipper/Mountain Orthopaedics of Bountiful Athletes of the Week program returns. Each week we’ll honor those who have had outstanding athletic performances in prep sports.
Our first Male Athlete of the Week honor goes to Davis High running back Carston Christensen, who rushed for 128 yards on 23 carries as the Darts moved to 3-0 with a victory over Layton.
Other nominees for the male award were football players Garrett Larson and Trey Baggett of Davis, Robert Summerhays of Viewmont and Carston Naegle of Woods Cross.
Our Female Athlete of the Week award goes to Viewmont soccer player Sydney Anderson, who has led the Vikings in scoring this year. Viewmont is 5-2 on the year and 2-0 in region play.
Other nominees for the female award were soccer players Ellie Morris of Farmington, Lydia Pitt of Viewmont and Katie Longmore of Woods Cross, and volleyball players Katie Correlli of Davis and Taylor Russon of Farmington.
Winners are chosen by the Clipper sportswriting staff and on recommendations from area coaches. We’ll be honoring Athletes of the Week, as well as Athletes of the Month, throughout the school year.
Congratulations to all of these athletes!
