'23 TRACK and FIELD PERFORMER OF THE WEEK POLL
Congratulations to Ethan Fong of Stockton Lincoln (SJ) this week's top vote-getting for MileSplit Boys Track and Field Athlete of the Week.
Ethan, a senior, was the top CA triple jumper at the annual LEAP Fest Jumps-Only Showcase, making the trip south from Stockton to jump 44-3.25 and challenge his PR in the event at Mater Dei HS.
Ethan received 44 percent of the vote in a statewide poll. Brandon Cheeks, a junior at Mission Bay (SD), was second in the voting at 35 percent.
Congratulations to all athletes whose performance warranted consideration in last week's poll and thanks to everyone who voted.
Each week we will selected seven top performers from the previous week/weekend and put them on the line for you to select the CA T&F Performer of the Week.
Check out the resumes below and then make sure to vote in the FanPower module at the bottom of the page. As always, voting closes Friday at 9 p.m.
So we've gotta ask: WHO YA GOT?
