Here are the Rivereast Standout Athletes of the Week for the week of April 18-24:
Catherine Misbach - Bacon Academy High School (Track & Field): Misbach won the 400 meter hurdles at The Patriot Games at Coventry High School on April 23. The senior ran a personal-best 1:12.72 at the meet, besting runner-up Mackenzie DiDonato of Thomaston by more than a second. The multi-school meet featured athletes from 30 schools around Connecticut.
Ryan Kerr - Portland High School (Tennis): Kerr won his #1 singles match against Cromwell’s Zachary Daniele (6-3, 6-0) on April 18. The junior is helping lead an extremely young group of Highlanders this spring. The Highlanders had two more matches at Portland High School remaining this spring—welcoming in Coginchaug on Wed. May 4 (3:45 p.m.) and Old Saybrook for the home finale on Mon., May 9 (4:15 p.m.).
Einin Frost – East Hampton High School (Softball): Frost was dynamite from both the plate and the mound during the Bellringers 19-2 win over Westbrook on April 18. The senior connected on two hits, driving in a pair of run and scoring four more. Frost also went the entire way, pitching five innings and striking out 10 as East Hampton jumped out to a 12-1 lead after the first inning and never looked back.
Joey Fahey - RHAM High School (Track & Field): Fahey won the javelin throw at The Patriot Games at Coventry High School on April 23. The sophomore destroyed the competition, throwing the javelin 149’01 feet, which is a personal-best and nearly four feet further than second-place finisher Mark McLaughlin of Stafford.
