Sydney Gallagher and Skanda Moorthy are this week’s Yours Truly Athletes of the Week.

Gallagher, a junior on the Hudson girls cross country team, finished 12th at the GlenOak Golden Eagle Invitational earlier in the season and 15th at the recent Stow Bulldog Invitational. "Sydney continues to be rock solid for our team," Explorers head coach Megan Petraska said. "She ran a stellar race [Oct. 5] to help us finish second to a tough Jackson team and is the kind of runner I wish I could clone: hard-working, focused, determined, positive and persevering. She is also a stellar student."

Moorthy, a senior on the Hudson boys soccer team, has seven goals and three assists thus far in 2019. Moorthy has come back strong after missing all of last season with a knee injury. He has led the Explorers to the top seed at the Solon Division I sectional-district tournament.
