The Athlete of the Week for April 13th-19th is Jacob Burcham of Barboursville Middle School. Mr. Burcham is an 8th grade student who ran 4:38.10 for 1600m last week. That should end up being one of the fastest times in the nation for an 8th grader in 2009. Jacob is coached by Pat Riley at BMS, who is leading one of the premier middle school programs in the state. Just missing out on this week's AotW were Amber Riley (Auburn), Alison Spiker (WVU) and Karly Hamric (WVU) who ran 10:38, 10:44 and 4:28 respectively.

The AotW for April 6th-12th is Amber Riley of Auburn University. Amber earns her AotW award for running a 4:29.09 1500m during the past weekend. Ms. Riley is a 2007 graduate of University High School. During high school Amber had a storied running career, winning the 2006 AAA Cross Country title. She's now coached by "Pistol" Pete Watson at Auburn. Amber is now less than 2 seconds from the Outdoor Regional mark. Congratulations on a new personal record and best of luck during the rest of the season.
(Apologies for the picture, it was all I could find. If anyone has an action shot of Ms. Riley running at Auburn, feel free to email it to me.)
