Tim Monihan and Farmers Insurance in Peachtree City named senior runner Branden Rew as the eighth Player of the Week for the spring sports season. This is the second time Rew has been selected for the award this school year.
“He has performed very well over the latter half of the season,” varsity track and field head coach Chad Walker said. “He is ranked in the top-ten in the state in the 400-meter race and in the top-five in the 300-meter hurdles.”
Rew finished first in 300-meter hurdles at the region 3-AAAAA meet with a time of 39.43 seconds, and third in the 400-meter race with a time of 49.70 seconds. He was the anchor leg for the 4×400-meter relay where Starr’s Mill placed 4th.
“I rally [the team] and get them motivated,” Rew said. “I try to get them to do the best they can.”
Rew set a personal record in every event he participated in, and will go on to compete in the State Sectional meet on April 28 in Panther Stadium.
