Rock Hills Junior Rylee Whelchel has been named the Telephone and Cable Athlete of the Week.


Whelchel put together a great performance at the NPL Powerlifting Meet in Wilson last week.  Less than one year removed from fracturing and tearing the tendon from his hip. His recovery and to even return to competition is quite remarkable.  Whelchel collected first place in the squat with a lift of 475lbs. He also earned first place in the clean with a lift of 285lbs.  Both lifts established new NPL powerlifting meet records.

We will announce the winners each week. Remember, you can nominate an athlete from any school sport.
