Hillsboro’s Wright adds Applebee’s of Farmington Athlete of the Week to district titles

(Hillsboro) Hillsboro Hawks senior Sam Wright is having a dominant final track & field season.

He can now also call himself the Applebee’s of Farmington Athlete of the Week.

Wright won district titles in all 4 of his events at the Class 4 District 2 championships Saturday on his home track.

After losing all of last season to the pandemic, he says it’s gratifying to reap the rewards of the grind.

Wright took home gold in the 100 and 200-meter dashes, while also winning the 110 and 300-meter hurdles.

But despite some differences, Wright says his training is similar for all the races.

But there is a chance to win more hardware at the Class 2 state sectionals in Park Hills this Saturday, with a chance to move on to state.

Wright says he’s rearing and ready to go.

Wright added to winning all 4 of those events at the JCAA conference championships earlier this season.

As Athlete of the Week, he receives a T-shirt, a certificate and a coupon good for one free entree at Applebee’s in Farmington.
