Butte High freshmen swimmers Nathan Stone and Olivia Thurmond have been named Leskovar Honda Athletes of the Week.
Both receive the honor after being nominated by Bulldog coach Lynn Shrader.
Thurmond receives the girls’ honor after placing fourth in the 100-yard freestyle and eighth in the 100 backstroke in Friday’s home meet. She has placed in the top 10 in every meet this season, posting a personal-best mark each time.
“She works hard, and is a leader on the team,” Shrader said. “She swims any event without question, always doing best for them team.”
Stone, a homeschool student, takes home the boys’ honor. He has also led the team in almost ever meet. He placed third in the 50 freestyle with a personal-best time Friday. He also placed sixth in the 100 breaststroke.
“He, too, swims any event asked of him,” Shrader said. “Team comes first, even in an individualized team sport.”
Leskovar Honda, home of the 20-year, 200,000-mile warranty, is honoring the finest student-athletes from the Mining City in an effort to encourage more children to get up, get out and try all kinds of sports and activities.
