Yorktown sophomore basketball player Addy Barnes was voted the Daily News Athlete of the Week from the week of 1/17-1/24.
“All season, when the crowd gets into it, we all get into it,” Barnes said. “It has made games really fun.”
Last week, Barnes led the Tigers with 14 points in the Tigers’ 47-46 win over Frankton.
The Ball State Daily News will use this program to honor athletes who had an impressive week or a breakout performance. A candidate from each school will be chosen and the community can vote for the winner.
Candidates will be announced every Wednesday with the voting closing on the following Saturday at 5 p.m. If you believe a certain student-athlete should be your school’s candidate, email the Daily News high school sports reporter Zach Carter at email@example.com.
To vote for the athletes, check the Daily News Sports account on X.
