WEEK 2 | 2023-24 OrthoCarolina Performance of the Week

Each week two athletes in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association are selected for the Performance of the Week Award, Powered by OrthoCarolina. These athletes are nominated by coaches, media, and school administrators for their outstanding performance.  

The OrthoCarolina Performers of the Week for week two of the NCHSAA competition are Kelley Cook from Manteo and Austin LeWallen from Princeton.

Though her squad fell to Holmes later in the week, she had an even more impressive performance with 25 kills, 22 digs, a block assist and 11 serves without an error. 

For the week, Cook had 23 serve receptions without an error.
