Page senior Sydney Weinstein and Ravenwood senior Andrew Mason were selected as the Gateway Tire Female and Male Athletes of the Week.
Weinstein guided the Lady Patriots to back-to-back shutouts last week in goal, while Mason flirted with state records in the Raptors 61-47 Week 4 victory over Pulaski Academy of Little Rock, Arkansas.
The pair of athletes were chosen as part of the Athletes of the Week awards sponsored by Gateway Tire and Service Center of Franklin. One male and one female athlete from Williamson County will be selected and featured each week in the Williamson Herald.
Page soccer coach Nate Clapp said he has been blessed to watch Weinstein develop into the standout keeper she’s become.
“Sydney is one of the hardest workers I have coached,” he said. “Her intensity level never slumps and she is constantly striving to get better each day.”
Last Tuesday, Page clipped Class AAA Rossview 2-0 in Franklin. On Thursday, the Lady Patriots recorded a 3-0 District 12-AA win at Spring Hill.
Weinstein made five saves in the two contests on 10 shots for the pair of clean sheets. Page improved to 4-6-1 overall.
Mason and the Raptors (4-0) made national headlines on Friday with the win against the unorthodox Bruins in a Tennessee vs. Arkansas high school football showdown. Mason hauled in seven touchdowns, which matched a state record, for 355 yards in the victory. He also ran in the final score for eight total TDs on the night. His eight catches for 355 yards receiving was three yards shy of setting the state record.
“Man, phenomenal night from Andrew,” Ravenwood coach Matt Daniels said after the game.
Marcela Forero Pretto and Tony Rice, both Ravenwood standouts, were named the Gateway Tire F…
The coach praised the connection Mason has with fellow senior quarterback Brian Gracia.
“I think we could shut off all the lights out here and they could still complete eight out of 10 passes in the dark," he said.
Mason managed the memorable night while wearing a cast on his left hand and wrist because of a fracture suffered two weeks prior.
“Shoot, maybe we will have him keep it on,” Daniels joked.
Other nominees for Athlete of the Week included senior Ethan Cash of Independence, who completed 24-of-37 passes for 327 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions. All five scores went to Chayce Bishop, while Cash also ran in another TD in a 49-7 win over Blackman.
Sophomore Megan Wroblewski of Franklin was a Female Athlete of the Week nominee after she recorded a hat trick for the Lady Rebels in a 7-0 win at Hendersonville on Thursday.
