This weeks female athlete of the week is Junior Alexa Triplett. The girls soccer team is off to a terrific start and it starts with great leadership on and off the field. Alexa scored a pair of goals this past week in wins over Pocahontas County and North Marion. She has been a vocal leader to a rather young team and by working hard every day in practice and showing that same intensity on game day, it has pushed the younger players to bring up the level of their game. We want to congratulate Alexa and all the Lady Tigers on what is shaping up for not only a great season, but a continued successful program in girls soccer at Elkins High.
