Lincoln Senior Jaycee Vath has been named the Telephone and Cable Athlete of the Week.

Vath continued her great senior campaign by sweeping the individual league championships in the distance races at last Thursday's Northern Plains League meet in Mankato.  Vath won the 800m run in 2:34.96, which was her top time this season.  She also won the 1600m run in a time of 5:36.26 and the 3200m run in 12:24.48.  Vath has competed in seven regular high school meets this season, bringing home the gold in every race she has run.  She has seven golds in the 1600 with a top time of 5:31.93 at the Kaser Relays in Osborne on April 23.  She also has claimed six golds in the 3200m run with her top time in that event in Osborne as well at 12:03.05.  Running in the 800m the past four meets, she has taken first place in all of those events as well, compiling a total of 17 gold medals this spring.  Next up for Vath is the 1A Regional meet in Mankato on Friday, where she has the top time in the state in both the 1600m and 3200m heading into the postseason.

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