Athlete of the Week - Tyler Neville, Soph., McCool Junction

McCool Junction sophomore Tyler Neville is one of two York News-Times’ male coverage area student-athletes that qualified for the state meet in four events, the other being High Plains senior Logan Russell, a previous Male Athlete of the Week. Last Friday during districts at Sandy Creek High School in Fairfield, Neville was district runner-up in both the 1600- and 3200-meter runs, cleared the automatic state standard in the pole vault of 12 feet, 2 inches and was a member of the Mustangs’ 4x400 relay, which earned a trip to state as an additional qualifier. The other three runners in that relay included Owen McDonald, Dana Hobbs and August Aamodt.
