By Bill Nestor,
It’s that time once again to acknowledge the efforts of Harrison County’s student athletes. Each week we will take a look back at the performances of girls and boys from the six high schools (Bridgeport, Liberty, Lincoln, Notre Dame, Robert C. Byrd, and South Harrison) in our county. The Shinnston News & Harrison County Journal Athletes of the Week award is an avenue that is used to promote the youth of our county while bringing attention to their athletic accomplishments.
This past week’s winners are Lincoln’s Josie Payton and Liberty’s Logan Robey.
Cougar volleyball player Josie Payton amassed some impressive numbers this past week. Payton accrued 50 kills, 46 blocks, 44 points (including 20 aces), and 10 assists.
Mountaineer running back Logan Robey helped his team to a 34-7 win over Lincoln this past week. Robey rushed for 267 yards on 26 carries and three touchdowns. He scored on runs of 4, 50, and 12 yards respectively.
Congratulations to Lincoln’s Josie Payton and Liberty’s Logan Robey for being named the Shinnston News & Harrison County Journal’s Athletes of the Week!
