Mid-State Toyota “Athletes of the Week” Ernesto Salinas, Kyle Hicks, & Michael Smith

Stephanie King

After a short week of Randolph County athletics due to the holiday break, it is now time to announce this week’s Mid-State Toyota “Athlete of the Week”! This week we have three athletes who came up big for their team on two different occasions. This week’s Mid-State Toyota “Athletes of the Week” are Asheboro’s Ernesto Salinas, Kyle Hicks, and Michael Smith.

All three wrestlers finished the week undefeated after picking up wins at both the Raider Rumble on Saturday and the Randleman Quad Meet on Wednesday. Each one finished the week a perfect 8-0.

On Saturday, Salinas went 5-0 after picking up 4 wins and a forfeit in the 113lb weight class. He drew two forfeits and defeated his opponent from East Davidson on Wednesday to end the day 3-0. Kyle Hicks defeated three of his opponents and drew two forfeits on Saturday to finish the day 5-0. He remained undefeated for the week on Wednesday when he went 3-0 at Randleman after defeating opponents from Randleman and East Davidson and drawing a forfeit. Michael Smith defeated all five of his opponents on Saturday to go 5-0 on the day. He picked up where he left off on Wednesday when he defeated opponents from Randleman, South Davidson, and East Davidson. All three wrestlers have had a great start to their season and the Blue Comet fans should be proud.

Congratulations to all three young men for being named this week’s Mid-State Toyota “Athletes of the Week”!
