Each week we will be highlighting one male and female athlete who stood out with their cumulative performances of the week and/or had one jaw-dropping pop of a mark.
This week, on the girls’ side, the single outstanding performance has to be Oyster River’s Mackenzie Cook’s solo 3000 meter effort at Plymouth posting a 10:34.84. Yes she has run a tick faster this season, at Boston University’s blazing fast track in spikes, which is the top time in the state as of right now, but this is a tad more impressive considering she was by herself, on a flat track, without spikes. Cook is no stranger to running from the front and also has one of the top times in the state in the 1500, 5:04. Congrats to Mackenzie Cook, this week’s HOKA Female Athlete of the Week!
