580 WIBW and Lewis Toyota are proud to celebrate the achievements of local high school athletes with our weekly Athletes of the Week honors.
Every week, we talk with standout high school athletes in Topeka who have made their names known through their contributions on the field, the court or wherever they compete. 580 WIBW and 580 Sports Talk thank Lewis Toyota for their continued support of high school athletes in Topeka.
This week’s featured female athlete is Topeka High senior golfer Avery Zimmerman. Avery won the city golf championship this past weekend in a playoff, her first career tournament win. We spoke to Avery about the win, her strengths on the course, her college future in soccer and more.
Our male athlete of the week is Jackson Esquibel, a senior for Shawnee Heights cross country. This past weekend at Rim Rock Park in Lawrence, Jackson won his 5K race with a time of 15:57. Jackson spoke to us about that race, how he’s developed as a runner, his goals for his senior season and more.
