Jesse Garcia has been named Key West High School Athlete of the Week by school Athletic Director Sarah Eckert.

The KWHS Athlete of the Week was chosen by Eckert for athletic achievement, sportsmanship, grades and hard work.

Garcia, a senior and member of the Conchs wrestling team, was chosen because he “broke the school record for pin falls in a single season when he earned his 30th pin at the Tri-County Invitational at Olympic Heights. Jesse’s talent and determination have helped him to excel in multiple sports at Key West High School,” said Eckert.

The award was created to honor outstanding athletes who contribute to team sports at KWHS and is sponsored by Niles Sales and Service, Le Macaron French Pastries and Island 106.9 FM.
