PHOENIX - Congratulations to this week's Athletes of the Week.
From Hamilton High School junior Mitch Nay hit three homeruns, a triple and a double in a seven RBI game this week. The Huskies beat Brighton 22-0 in the Big League Dugout Invitational.
The Chandler girls track and field team had a big weekend at their host meet. Success was led by junior Jasmine Todd who set a new state triple jump record of 41-5 inches well ahead of the old record of 40-11 inches. That mark is the top jump in the nation so far this year. Todd's performance earned her the Outstanding Field Performer Award at the meet.
And finally Tempe's Jordan Baker was named the Arizona Gatorade Player of the Year. Baker averaged 27.3 points, 5 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.5 steals on the season. He helped the team to the state finals. Baker is headed to Pepperdine University next year.
