St. John's junior Caleb Eilert has been named the Telephone and Cable Athlete of the Week.

Eilert competed in the Rim Rock Farm High School Cross Country Classic in Lawrence this past Saturday.  He had an outstanding race, taking 1st place in the Boys Blue Varsity Race with a time of 16:28.30 in the 5K.  The race featured 311 runners from 52 different schools.  Eilert, who finished 2nd at State as a sophomore in 2018, has had a great start to this season after missing track and field due to an off the track injury.  In the four races he has competed in he has won three gold medals (Washington County, Smith Center, Rim Rock) and took third place in his only other race (Concordia).

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