Athletes of the Week: Hyman and Treherne

Athletes of the week for the week ending on April 20, 2002, are Deandre Hyman of Deep Creek and Leslie Treherne of Western Branch. Each athlete had outstanding performances leading their squads to dominating team wins at the Gus Lacy Track Classic held at Fork Union.

The Deep Creek boys are loaded with talent in the sprints, but none of them shined more than Deandre Hyman at Fork Union as he finished 3rd in the 100 meter dash (11.16), first in the 200 meter dash with a state best time of 21.63, and capped off his brilliant day with a 47.2 anchor leg on the winning 4x400 squad.

Maybe one of the comeback stories of the season is Western Branch\'s Leslie Treherne. Now a junior, as a freshmen Treherne was one of the top middle distance talents in the state. Her sophomore year however, she suffered a back injury which forced her to sit out the track season. Recovered from the injury, Treherne played basketball in the winter, and now has just bursted onto the track scene this past month. At the CNU Captain Classic last weekend, she made everyone aware that she is back as she won the 800 in a time of 2:18. This weekend at Fork Union, she reinforced her return by winning the 400 meter dash in a smoking state best time of 56.63. It is the second week in a row that a Western Branch girl has earned athlete of the week honors as last weeek teammate Lauren Taylor earned the award.
