Varsity Extra athletes of the week (May 6-11)

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

BASEBALL

Toby Anderson, Skyview: The Minnesota commit played in three 4A District Three Tournament games last week, helping the Hawks win the district championship with a 7-6 victory over Bishop Kelly. Anderson finished the week with two wins on the mound with eight strikeouts and a 3-for-6 performance at the plate with a double and three RBIs. In the title game, Anderson pitched a scoreless seventh inning to earn the come-from-behind victory.

SOFTBALL

Bradie Fillmore, Eagle: The Mustangs won their third 5A District Three championship in five seasons behind their freshman pitcher. Fillmore pitched a two-hit shutout with 16 strikeouts in a 2-0 victory over Capital in the district semifinals. She then entered in the third inning of the district title game and pitched seven innings of relief with 15 strikeouts and no walks as Eagle beat Rocky Mountain 4-3 in nine innings.

GIRLS TRACK

Allison Jeffries, Eagle: The senior became one of the few female Idaho high school pole vaulters to clear 13 feet. Jeffries cleared the mark on her first attempt at the height to win the event at the 5A District Three meet at Rocky Mountain High. According to athletic.net, Jeffries is tied for 11th in the nation this season in the pole vault. Jeffries also won the 100 hurdles in a district record time of 14.27 seconds, ran the opening leg of Eagle’s winning 4×100 relay team and finished second in the 300 hurdles.

BOYS TRACK

Josh Wallin, Rocky Mountain: The senior and Washington State commit won the 400 meters in 47.54 seconds at the 5A District Three meet at Rocky Mountain High. His time was a district record and ranks seventh in the nation this season, according to athletic.net. Wallin’s time would also be good enough to break the oldest overall state meet record in the books of 48.03 set by Nampa’s Dean Sword in 1984.

GIRLS TENNIS

Bianca Mok, Boise: The sophomore remained unbeaten this season and successfully defended her 5A District Three girls singles championship with a 6-0, 6-4 victory over Eagle freshman Skylar Schossberger at Julia Davis Park. Mok, who also is the defending state champion, trailed 4-3 in the second set before rallying for the win.

BOYS TENNIS

John Wingate, Capital: The second-seeded junior survived a tight match with Borah sophomore Kyle Whittaker to win his first 5A District Three championship in boys singles. Wingate defeated Whittaker 6-3, 7-6 (2) at Julia Davis Park. In the second set, Wingate led 4-2, but Whittaker rallied for a 6-all tie.

GIRLS GOLF

Lou Points, Eagle: Points won her first 5A District Three individual title in four tries after carding a 1-over 72 at SpurWing County Club. The senior edged Rocky Mountain’s Ryleigh Moore by a single stroke for the victory, helping her Mustangs to a second-place finish and a spot at state.

BOYS GOLF

Mark Brassey, Timberline: Brassey shot a 3-under 69 at TimberStone Golf Course in Caldwell to claim the 5A District Three individual championship. The senior and Boise State commit won by one stroke and helped his team to a third-place finish and a berth in the state tournament.
