Maddie Roukey and Harrsha Congivaram are this week’s Yours Truly Athletes of the Week.
Roukey, a sophomore pitcher on the Hudson softball team, threw a pair of one-hit shutouts to open the season for the Explorers.
In her first outing, she struck out 12 and was one pitch shy of a perfect game in Hudson’s 17-0 win over Garfield Heights.
In a conference matchup against Brecksville-Broadview Heights, Roukey struck out 14 while only giving up a sixth-inning single. She also smacked a pair of doubles to help the offense.
Congivaram, a senior on the Hudson boys tennis team, won five of his first six matches. He also placed second in the first singles’ flight at the St. Edward Invitational.
Congivaram has earned wins at first singles over players from Brecksville, Nordonia, Revere, Avon Lake and Kenston.
