Athlete of the Week: Aubrey Cordova, McCurdy Cross Country

Cordova, who broke out at last year's state championship, ran two minutes faster than her time a year ago in Rio Rancho, an improvement enough to grab fifth place in the girls varsity race. She was best among all 2A runners in the varsity race (though her 22:25 time would have been just behind two Peñasco runners and one from Laguna-Acoma in the championship race). Cordova will continue to guide a young Bobcats team through the season.

 Honorable mentions: Neveah Cachora (Española Valley cross country), Jack Purdy (Española Valley football)

Cordova won this week's Athlete of the Week digital poll with 294 votes.
