WIBW and Wendy’s are proud to celebrate the achievements of local high school athletes with our weekly Athletes of the Week honors.
Every week, we talk with two standout high school athletes in Topeka who have made their names known through their contributions on the field, the court or wherever they compete. 580 WIBW and 580 Sports Talk thank Wendy’s for their continued support of high school athletes in Topeka.
Our two athletes this week have made history in recent competition.
This week’s female athlete of the week is Makenzie Millard, a junior bowler from Seaman. At last week’s Hayden quad event, Makenzie bowled a 727 series, just the second 700 series in program history; she also did it the first time last season. Makenzie spoke with us about her season so far, goals for the year and what bowling competition is like during a pandemic.

Our male athlete of the week is Remington Stiles, a senior wrestler from Washburn Rural. For the second year in a row Remington is the Centennial League champion at 182 pounds, pulling off a key win at last week’s league meet to help propel Washburn Rural to a team title. We talked to Remington about the Centennial League meet, starting first instead of last and his pilot-based future plans.
