Varsity Extra athletes of the week (May 11-16)


Parker Price, Timberline: The junior pitcher/shortstop went 8-for-13 in the 5A state tournament, including a two-run, go-ahead double in the top of the seventh inning to lead the Wolves to a come-from-behind win in the 5A championship. He also pitched 12 one-run innings in the tournament, earning a pair of win and improving his record to 13-2 on the season. His 13 wins are a school single-season record.


Hailey Fisher, Eagle: The sophomore cranked a grand slam in the fifth inning of the 5A state championship game to drive in the winning run in an 8-6 victory over Coeur d’Alene. The blast erased a three-run deficit and put Eagle (30-1) ahead 7-6. The Mustangs later added an insurance run.


Madison Lung, Boise: The senior won three gold medals at the 5A state track meet — 100, 200 and 4x100. Her 400 time of 55.87 seconds set an all-classification record, and her time of 24.62 seconds in the 200 would have set another record if not for the wind.


Michael Slagowski, Rocky Mountain: The junior’s best finish at state last year was second place in the 1,600. But Slagowski brought home three state titles from Dona Larsen Park, sweeping the 800 (1:53.44), 1,600 (4:17.76) and 3,200 (9:20.90).


Bianca Mok, Boise: The University of Denver commit wrapped up her undefeated high school career with a 6-2, 6-0 victory in the 5A girls singles final. Mok, who has lost one set in four years, dropped the first two games to Borah’s Sydnie Binder before rallying to take the next 12.


Andrew Tzeng, Eagle: Tzeng also finished his career with a four straight title, teaming up with freshman and younger brother Adam Tzeng to win the 5A boys double final 7-5, 6-1 over Idaho Falls’ Jesse Haas and Bryant Johnson. The brothers went undefeated this season.


Kinsley Bonfilio, Bishop Kelly: The Boise State commit rolled to the 4A state title at The Links Golf Course in Post Falls, shooting 78 on the first day and 74 on the second for a 152, seven strokes ahead of second place. Bonfilio eagled the final hole of the two-day tournament.


Josh Gliege, Eagle: A wire-to-wire winner for the 5A state title, Gliege fired a 7-under 65 on the second day of the 5A state tournament at Avondale Golf Course in Hayden Lake to win by seven strokes. His round also helped the Mustangs to a seven-stroke victory over Rocky Mountain for their sixth straight team title.
