The votes have been counted, so it is only right to announce the Register’s winners for February’s Allen County Area Athlete of the Month. These are the winners:
Logan Brown — Brown became Iola High’s first state wrestling champion on Saturday in Salina. Brown pulled two incredible wins over 43-0 Evan Dean of Santa Fe Trail, and No.1 heavyweight wrestler in 4A, Aysten Perez of Ulysses.
Madelynn Collins — Collins has been the heart and soul of the Lady Cats this winter. Most recently, Collins scored 16 points in a tight 37-35 loss to rival Humboldt. Collins has also committed her softball future to ACC.
For the winners, expect a visit from Tim Stauffer of the Iola Register and I in the coming weeks when we will distribute a certificate for achievement along with a gift from Rookies Sports Bar & Grill. At Rookies, you can find our recognitions of the athletes on the north wall.
If you have an athlete that you believe is worth watching, go ahead and email the sports desk at email@example.com to make sure no athlete goes unnoticed in the Allen County area.
