Kristie Brinkerhoff has chosen Robert Stepper for Athlete of the Week. Robert is a jumper and sprinter on the boys varsity track team. He does a long jump and runs the open 200, the 4×100, and the 4×200 relays. Brinkerhoff has chosen Robert because his talent is tremendous even when he doesn’t try.
“Robert’s long legs enable him to stride far and move fast which may qualify him for state this year,” said sprinting coach Brinkerhoff. “Last year he was in the top seat for the long jump as well, until zone where he didn’t give it his all and was unable to make it to state in his jumping events which was a huge letdown.”
Varsity track will have a meet on May 5 at Lowry where you can watch Stepper and other athletes compete against other northern 4A division 1A.
