Clark voted Reformer Athlete of the Week

BRATTLEBORO — Bellows Falls Union High School student Shane Clark received 216 votes to earn Brattleboro Reformer Athlete of the Week honors for Oct. 29 to Nov. 4.

The senior running back carried the ball 22 times for 114 yards and two touchdowns when the No. 4 Bellows Falls varsity football team upset top-seeded Burr and Burton 22-16 in a Division 2 semifinal.

"Shane is a true athlete. He carries himself with humility, poise and determination. He has grown into a wonderful young man, and will continue to go far," noted Daretye Cree Fontaine on their voting ballot.

Clark joins BF's Halle Dickerson, Logan Cota, Abbe Cravinho and Sophia Hyslop; Brattleboro's Kharisma Boyd, Brenden Gilbeau and Tyler Millerick; and Hinsdale's Delaney Wilcox as fall 2017 winners. His prize is two free games of bowling at Brattleboro Bowl, which has a total of 20 lanes and opens at 1 p.m. every day.
