Athlete of the Week: Tom Devenney

Warwick's Tom Devenney is our Athlete of the Week!

Tom Devenney is one of Warwick's most accomplished wrestlers and shows every time he gets on the mat why he deserves "Athlete of the Week".

Devenney came off of a big win in Leagues to win the 285 pound title and headed to Districts with that same momentum. He ended the first day of the tournament in the winners bracket with a positive attitude and a chance at another title.

Although he lost in the semis 5-4 to Solanco's Bo Spiller (the man he beat in the L-L final), he still earned a 3rd place finish and the honors of representing the Warriors in Hershey at the PIAA State Tournament for the second straight year.

Athlete of the Week: Nick Martin

Garden Spot's champion bowler earns the honor this week.

One local roller was left standing when the L-L league championships were all said and done.

Nick Martin isn't used to the spotlight, but it was squarely on him all day long. Great games in the morning and afternoon sessions seeded him 2nd for the stepladder finals, where he defeated Lancaster Mennonite's Chelsea Merklinger in his first matchup, moving on to the finals.

His opponent was Elizabethtown's Austin Farwell, and Martin claimed the title with a statement 44-pin victory, bringing the singles crown back to New Holland.

Next up: the District 3 championships this Saturday.

Athletes of the Week: Kelly Liebl and Oliver Denlinger

Too close to call this week, so the two splitting the honors are Ephrata's Kelly Liebl and Cocalico's Oliver Denlinger.

Ephrata's Kelly Liebl and Cocalico's Oliver Denlinger stepped up on the court on Friday which is why they are this weeks player's of the week.

Kelly Liebl showed why she deserved player of the week by helping Ephrata take down Cocalico in a big rivalry game. The Mounts won 38-28 in a huge victory.

Over on the boys side, Oliver Denlinger and the Eagles outlasted Ephrata in a game that went into triple overtime. Cocalico took the victory with a score of 85-82. Denlinger's sharpshooting in that third overtime was key in deciding the game. He ended the night with 24 points.
