BEAR RIVER HIGH – May 24, 2021
Why have just two Headliner Athletes of Week when you can have 10 instead?! After all the exciting athletic accomplishments recently at Bear River High, BRVNEWS.com couldn’t pick just two student athletes to feature this week, so instead, we’re posting it Monday-Friday, May 24-28!
Kace Jones and McCall Maxfield are today’s featured Headliner Athletes of the Week at BRVNEWS.com - sponsored by Chanshare Farms. Thank you for supporting local journalism and high school sports in the Bear River Valley!
Today’s featured Headliner Athlete of the Week at BRVNEWS.com goes to Bear River High School senior Kace Jones for finishing out his high school sports career with yet another big accomplishment to add to his already impressive list!
Kace was part of the Bear River boys’ 4x200 relay team that took home the 2021 championship title on May 21, at Davis High School. The team had a recorded time of 1:31.6.
On May 22, Kace was also part of the Bear River boys’ 4x100 relay team that finished third in 4A with a time of 43.77 seconds. That same day, Kace took second place overall in 4A in the javelin event with distance of 185-04.
He followed the weekend’s success being named Bear River High’s 2021 Athlete of the Year during an awards ceremony on May 24.
