Athlete of the Week - Logan Russell, Sr., High Plains

The High Plains Storm boys are continuing to have a great start to the track and field season, and on Thursday in Central City, senior Logan Russell had the top performance of the week at the Merrick County Invite. Russell won the 200-meter dash with a time of 54.43 and was also a member of the 4x100 relay that took first in 45.88 (the other members of that relay included Keaton VanHousen, Dylan Soule and Tanner Wood). But those weren’t the only events the two-time Class D state wrestling champ did well in. Russell also placed second in the 400, clocking in at 54.43.
