Varsity Extra athletes of the week (April 29-May 4)

Please email nominations to rroberts@idahostatesman.com by Monday morning for performances based on the previous week.

BASEBALL

Tommy Barker, Timberline: The senior right-handed pitcher helped the Wolves pull off the biggest upset in the opening round of the 5A District Three Tournament. No. 7 Timberline defeated No. 2 Mountain View 6-5. Barker pitched the first five innings, striking out three and walking one while going 2-for-3 at the plate with a home run and four RBIs.

SOFTBALL

Gabi Harrington, Bishop Kelly: The freshman shortstop led the Knights to the 4A Southern Idaho Conference’s regular-season title. Harrington went 6-for-7 at the plate with three home runs, a double and eight RBIs in victories over Columbia (12-0) and Nampa (16-0). Both games were called after five innings because of the 10-run mercy rule.

GIRLS TRACK

Brittany Rawlins, Eagle: The senior posted a rare sub-12 second 100 meter time and added a record run in the 200 at the Gary Gorrell Twilight Classic. Rawlins won the 100 in 11.97 seconds and the 200 in 25.21, both of which rank first in Idaho, according to athletic.net. Rawlins also ran legs on Eagle’s state-leading 4×400 and 4×100 relay teams.

BOYS TRACK

Bryson Stout, Meridian: The junior swept the 100 and 200 meters at the Gary Gorrell Twilight Classic. Stout’s 200 time of 21.84 seconds is the fastest in the state this season, while his 100 time of 10.93 ranks third in the state, according to athletic.net.

GIRLS TENNIS

Amy Agenbroad, Skyview: The Hawks wrapped up the regular season with two wins last week. Agenbroad won both of her No. 1 singles matches, beating Kuna’s Becca Perry 6-3, 6-2 and Columbia’s Bre Lambson 6-2, 6-1.

BOYS TENNIS

Elliott Klein, Bishop Kelly: The Knights won their final two matches of the regular season last week. In No. 1 boys singles matches, Klein defeated Columbia’s Johannes Ott 6-2, 6-0, and then earned a hard fought 6-4, 7-6 (3) victory against Caldwell’s Ian Fisher.

GIRLS GOLF

Gabby Barker, Vallivue: The junior continues to dominate every time she steps on the course. Last week, Barker shot a 65 at BanBury to win the Eagle Invitational. The 65 — in the wind — was a course record.

BOYS GOLF

Graysen Huff, Eagle: The Mustangs won the Eagle Invitational team title last week at BanBury, with Huff leading the way. Huff shot a 69 to earn medalist honors at the 12-team tournament.
