Felicia Leamard has been named Key West High School Athlete of the Week by Athletic Director Sarah Ecker.

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

Leamard, on the KWHS girls weightlifting team, was chosen because she “has shown tremendous dedication, talent and leadership. From the beginning of season until now, she has made tremendous gains, beginning with a total lift of 215 pounds to a total lift of 240 pounds, currently placing her as the sixth seed in the district within her weight class,” 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.
