Athlete of the Week

CODY ELKINS

A freshman at Palisades High, Cody won the Boys 14s and 16s Divisions, took second among all junior players and went 3-0 in pool play to reach the Men’s B semifinals at the World Outdoor 3-Wall Racquetball Championships last weekend in the Stratosphere Hotel parking lot in Las Vegas. Along the way Cody beat this year’s “Beach Bash” national B champion and the Men’s 45-and-under indoor champion from Florida. He went to Paul Revere Middle School and in July he went undefeated in six matches to win his 14-and-under age group and the overall gold division at the 45th annual World Outdoor Racquetball Championships at Marina Park in Huntington Beach.
