Molly Stecker and Joe Whitman are this week’s Yours Truly Athletes of the Week.
Stecker, a junior on the Hudson girls track and field team, broke a 36-year-old record with a first-place leap of 5 feet, 8 inches in the high jump at the Suburban League Meet recently. Her jump also is a Suburban League record.
Stecker had a winning leap of 5-6 in the high jump at a Division I district meet Wednesday at Nordonia High School’s Boliantz Stadium in Macedonia. As a result, Stecker set a stadium record and advanced to the regional competition.
Whitman, a junior pitcher on the Hudson baseball team, has a school-record nine saves this season. He has a 1-0 record with 25 strikeouts in 12 ? innings of work this season.
