BOYS TENNIS

Sylvestor Vo, Westmoore

Vo has played doubles most of the season, but he switched to No. 1 singles and finished second at both the Moore and Southmoore tournaments. Both times, he lost to Ponca City's Blake Langston, who has been dominant.

GIRLS TENNIS

Kristen Bomhoff, Edmond North

Bomhoff is 30-0 this year at No. 2 doubles and has played with three different partners throughout the season. Her only loss came when she was moved to No. 1 doubles.

BOYS TRACK

Bryce Robinson, Edmond Memorial

The senior had a special week, starting with a win in the 100 meters in 10.59 seconds at the Edmond Track Classic at Edmond North last Friday. Robinson, who has burst onto the scene as one of the state's top sprinters this season, followed it up by signing with the University of Tulsa on Monday.

GIRLS TRACK

Mariah Garcia, Mustang

Garcia's discus throw of 151-feet, 3 inches, was the best by any girl in the state this year as she remained undefeated with a victory at the Edmond Track Classic last week, more than 40 feet better than second place. Garcia, the defending Class 6A discus champ, has thrown over 140 feet in every meet this season.
