Athlete(s) of the Week: Emma Rissinger and Ryan Bertrando

Warwick Seniors Emma Rissinger and Ryan Bertrando receive the "Athlete of the Week"nod. 

 Rissinger in the L-L Semi-finals
The week of October 17 was certainly a great week for Warwick athletics, both the field hockey and the soccer team won league gold, and they did it by winning against some old rivals. So its no surprise that when it came down to choosing the "Athlete of the Week" this week, it was a tough decision, when I wanted just to nominate two whole teams. But two seniors have definitely stepped up this season for their respective teams.

Warwick field hockey's Emma Rissinger is definitely one to always step up in clutch situations for her team.  In this past week alone, Rissinger not only scored the winning goal against Penn Manor in Championship game (she also scored that great goal against the Comets in the regular season), she is a threat from all areas on the field.

Bertrando celebrating after goal against Township
To the pitch where midfielder, Ryan Bertrando, also stepping up to the task. The Warrior fought hard in the battle against Hempfield for the league crown to win the fight in the middle third;  and got the start his team needed against Conestoga Valley by netting a goal within the first couple of minutes of play.

Both teams won its first league crown after a significant drought.
