Welcome to a brand new PennTrack feature, the Athlete of the Week! We will select an athlete who has performed at an exceptional level worthy of being called the best for the week!
Our first ever award goes to Upper Darby senior Claudine Andre. At Tuesday's Delaware County Championships, Andre won three events, highlighted by a lifetime best of 5-7 to win the high jump. The performance broke her own meet record she set last season (5-4), puts her top of the state and tied for 6th in the country! Andre also won the long jump in a lifetime best and PA#3 mark of 17-11 and she took home the 55 meter hurdles gold medal with a PA#7 time of 8.84!
Andre is in the state top eight in three events so far this season. She finished 4th in the 2013 PIAA Outdoor State Championships in the high jump and finished 6th in the 2013 Indoor State Championships. Congratulations Claudine!
