Congratulations to the Luke Leingang and Mack Rath for being chosen as PACA-Avera’s Athletes of the Week.
Luke Leingang (Tennis): Luke has started out the season strong for the Govs. He is currently 4-1 in Singles with the one loss being to the reigning flight champion from Sioux Falls Lincoln who hasn’t lost a match in his career. Luke’s match of 8-10 against him was the second closest match of his career. He also has 3 ESD wins on the young season as well, positioning himself well for a great seed in the tournament. Luke has a calm and controlled demeanor which serves him extremely well on the court and represents Pierre school and community in a very positive manner. His patient approach to wait for his moment to strike makes him the dangerous player that he is.
Mack Rath (Track): Mack has won four events in the past two track meets. She has won the shot and discus in both the Bob Judson and Huron Invite. Mack is currently, the #1 discus thrower in SD and the #3 shot put thrower in the state.
