WIBW and Wendy’s 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 Wendy’s for their continued support of high school athletes in Topeka.
This week’s female athlete of the week is Ainzley Zulueta, a sophomore from Hayden tennis. Ainzley won her second straight city girls #1 singles tennis title this past week and is on the hunt for another 4A state title. We spoke to Ainzley about her city title, what she worked on from her freshman to her sophomore seasons and her goals for the rest of the season.
Our featured male athlete this week is Allen Baughman, Shawnee Heights football’s junior running back. In four games this season, Allen has racked up 781 yards and 10 touchdowns, including 284 yards and two scores last Friday against Basehor-Linwood. Allen joined us to talk about his breakout season, where he draws inspiration from for his game and what he still wants to accomplish in 2022.
