Week No. 8: MVP, Time to Vote For Your Favorite Athlete

Competition should be spirited with so many outstanding candidates.

The time has come to vote for the MVP of the week. The season is definitely winding down.

  • Jehu Chesson, II, Ladue track and field. The 100 meter dash and 300 meter intermediate hurdle champ, he also captured a second in the 110 highs. A brilliant athletic career at Ladue is over.
  • Jack Howell, MICDS lacrosse. Another brilliant sports career comes to a close. Key attacker on the state's No. 2 team and leading wide receiver on the football team that reached the Show Me Bowl championships.
  • Haley Pryor, MICDS track and field. She won the Class 3 state pole vault title at 10-9. She went as high as 11 feet this year, barely missing at 11-3. The best female pole vaulter in the area this year.
  • Ezekiel Elliott, John Burroughs track and field. Second in both the 110 high and 300 intermediate hurdles, he also captured 5th in the 100 meter dash. All in a days work.
  • Carly Wickenheiser, St. Joseph's Academy soccer. A freshman, she nailed the game winner in overtime over rival Incarnate Word Academy, sending the Angels to the state Class 3 soccer championships this weekend in Kansas City.

Votes will be counted until 5 p.m. on Thursday. The winner will be announced on Saturday.
