Our Tyler Roth/WKVI Athlete of the Week for this week is Dana Wherret, a member of the Girls Country Team at LaCrosse High School.
Dana helped lead her team to it’s first-ever Porter County Conference Round Robin Championship. The Tigers got a share of the champiolnship with a 6-1 record as Dana consistently was the #2 runner for the team all season. In the one-day Conference Meet, she placed 11th with a time of 22:41, earning her a place on the All-Conference team along with teammates Justene Charlesworth and Erin O’Connor.
Just a Freshman, Dana ran her best time of the year in the rugged New Prairie Invitational with a time of 22:30.
An outstanding student, Dana also participates in basketball and track for the Tigers.
Dana is the daughter of Tom and Mary Wherret and will be featured on a future “Saturday Sportsline with Nathan Welter” on K99.3 and will have a featured picture and story on wkvi.com.
