4 are nominated for athlete of the week

BRATTLEBORO — It seems as though Bethany Coursen wins everything.

She captured the Reformer NFL Picking Derby in 2012, coached the Bellows Falls field hockey team to an undefeated season a year ago, and is also a repeat champion in an annual canoe race.

Her paddling success should probably make her a nominee for athlete of the week, but I'm not so sure she has any room left in her trophy case for another award.

So this week's candidates are a Twin Valley goal scorer, a talented BF running back, a distance runner from Brattleboro, and one of Coursen's stars. To vote, simply visit www.facebook.com/ReformerSports and "like" one of the student-athletes listed below.

Tatyanna Bowman

She tallied twice to help the Twin Valley varsity girls soccer team to a 3-2 victory over Windsor in Friday's season opener.

Shane Clark

After scoring four touchdowns in Week 1 versus Spaulding, the Bellows Falls varsity football team's running back rushed for 192 yards and three scores against Brattleboro on Friday night. His Week 2 highlights were carries of 47 and 48 yards along with a 34-yard reception.

Isaac Freitas-Eagan

He won Friday's cross-country race at Bellows Falls in a time of 16:28 to lead the Brattleboro boys to a silver medal. Stratton Mountain School, Bellows Falls, Saint Michael, and Hartford were also competing.

Abbe Cravinho

The Bellows Falls sticker had a hat trick and also dished out one assist as the Terriers topped Springfield, 8-0.
