Boys athlete of the week: Mayson Martinez, Filer

The Wildcats won both their games upon returning from the holiday break, and Martinez played a large role, particularly in their second win. After defeating Gooding on Thursday, a game in which Martinez added six points, the junior exploded for 17 points in Saturday’s victory over Declo. None of those 17 were more important than the final three, which came on a banked 3-pointer as time expired, lifting Filer over the hosting Hornets, 43-41. Martinez wasn’t the area’s highest scorer this week, but his points certainly had a vital impact as he helped his team improve to 6-5 this season.

Girls athlete of the week: Mattie Ramsey, Declo

Ramsey is often one of Declo’s highest scorers, but, due to the injury-forced absence of another high-scorer, junior Sydney Ramsey, she had to step it up a notch this week. She sure did. After scoring a team-high nine points in a win over American Falls on Wednesday, the senior poured in 23 of her team’s 38 points to help the Hornets defeat Gooding on Friday. Despite being without an important scorer, Declo went 2-0 during the week, thanks in large part to Ramsey’s contributions, and sit at 11-5 on the season.
