­­­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 38 of the NCHSAA competition are Aniya Edwards from Elkin and Christian Chance, Mason Hobbs and Tyce Thompson from South Central.

Edwards, a junior runner for the Elks Track and Field Team, won the 1A Most Outstanding Award on Monday at the Track and Field Championships in Greensboro on Monday as she won the 100, 200 and 400 meter races. She ran new personal bests in the 200 and 400, setting a new 400 1A record in the process.

Chance, Hobbs and Thompson each hit a grand slam in South Central’s 3A East Regional Championship Series Game One win against Terry Sanford. The Falcons became the first NCHSAA team to hit three grand slams in one game and only the fifth team to do so in the country. South Central won Game One 17-1 and completed the sweep with a 6-2 victory in Game Two to advance to the State Championship Series.
