Freedom boys soccer senior forward Patrick Sandy and girls golf junior Christina Fisher are The News Herald’s Farm Bureau high school county co-athletes of the week for games played Sept. 2-7.
Sandy scored six goals and two assists across two blowout wins versus county competition last week. In a road win at East Burke on Wednesday, Sandy scored four goals, balanced for two in each half. He scored twice more with two assists in a 9-0 home victory over Draughn the next day.
Fisher was the medalist in Tuesday’s Northwestern 3A/4A Conference season-opener at Boone Golf Club. She shot a nine-hole round of 40 to lead the Lady Patriots, who shot 140 as a team to win the event over reigning league champions McDowell by 11 strokes.
The News Herald will award an athlete of the week for all sports throughout the year.
