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 female athlete of the week is Emily Loy, a junior volleyball player from Shawnee Heights who was named first-team All-United Kansas Conference this week. We spoke to Emily about the postseason run for the Thunderbirds, how she’s evolved her game over time, what her volleyball-playing future looks like and more.
This week’s male athlete of the week is Joe Morse, a senior and captain for Washburn Rural soccer who tallied his first goal of the season this week for the Junior Blues. Joe joined us to talk about returning to the team from injury, his goals for the season, Washburn Rural’s postseason expectations and more.
