After an incredible performance at the NACC Outdoor Championships, senior Jerica Kotarak (Wind Lake, Wis. / Muskego) has been named Ian's Pizza Raider of the Week.
Kotarak returned to form after an injury filled spring to lock down the top spots in both the long jump and triple jump. She finished three-tenths of a meter ahead of her nearest competitor in the long jump, while she beat out teammate Bianca Trombley (Elkhorn, Wis. / Elkhorn Area) in the triple jump with a mark of 11.15 meters. When all the events had come to a close, Kotarak was named Female Field Athlete of the Meet, an award comparable to player of the year.
Kotarak finishes her NACC track and field career without a loss in either of those events at the indoor or outdoor conference championships. Her distance in the long jump has placed her 12th nationally, which should be good enough to send her to the NCAA Outdoor Championships later this month.
