Athletes of the Week
The Tyler Star News Athletes of the Week for November 20, 2019, are the Paden City Volleyball trio of freshman Tanley McEldowney, and juniors Mallory Yeater and Hope Weber.
All three athletes led the Wildcats to quarter-final and semi-final wins to advance the Cats to Saturday’s championship match with Wirt County. Although the Wildcats fell in the finals, all three of these players were named to the 2019 WVSSAC Class A all-tournament volleyball team.
These three underclassmen were instrumental all season long in helping the Wildcats achieve 36 wins on the year against only five defeats. The Wildcats won the OVAC for the third consecutive season and the Mason Dixon Championship. They also captured the state sectional and regional championships along the way.
Congratulations to all three on a very successful season and trip to the state tournament.
