The562’s Athletes of the Week is sponsored by the Long Beach Century Club.
Congratulations to our Athletes of the Week and thanks to the Long Beach Century Club and Naples Rib Company for their support.
Katie Knarr, Millikan Softball
Millikan got a statement win over Long Beach Poly last week, and an offensive explosion from Katie Knarr was a big part of the reason why. The defending league champion Rams got a three-run HR and a double from Knarr in the win over the Jackrabbits.
Aidan Knipe, Long Beach State Volleyball
Setter Aidan Knipe helped lead Long Beach State to a stunning sweep win over Hawaii last weekend, giving the Rainbow Warriors their first home straight-set loss in three years. Knipe guided the Beach offense to a .484 hitting clip, while putting up 43 assists in just three sets of action.
