CHAPEL HILL— Tiffany Holloway of Andrews High School and Justin Bullock of South Granville High School have been named recipients of the NCHSAA Performance of the Week awards, powered by Time Warner Cable SportsChannel with Jersey Mike’s Subs®.
Each week two athletes in North Carolina High School Athletic Association competition are selected for this award from nominations received from media and school administrators.
Holloway, a junior track and field athlete from Andrews, set a school record last week in the shot put with a whopping 41 feet, 6 inches throw during an eight-team meet at Murphy. This is the best recorded shot put distance this spring in the western part of the state. Her throw would have won last year’s 1A State championship shot put event by more than three feet.
Bullock, also a junior, pitched 12 innings with 27 strikeouts (18 against Northwood High School) in the recent Bobby Murray Tournament. He was also named MVP of the tournament, allowing 5 hits, 2 HBPs and 2 walks. At the plate, Bullock went 3 of 9 with a homerun and had 2 runs batted in.
TWC SportsChannel typically announces the winners of the awards during its Sports Night show and will recognize the winners throughout the week. Weekly recipients will also be recognized via Twitter and Facebook.
