Each week during the sports seasons, TC3 recognizes the outstanding accomplishments of a student athlete.
Ruthanne (Groton H.S./Groton) is the first TC3 Panther ever named the Athlete of the Week for three different sports in the same year. This week she is recognized for her exploits on the softball field, particularly in Sunday's doubleheader sweep of Delhi.

She also hit a home run, a double, and drove in a total of seven runs. Ruthanne was previously named TC3 Athlete of the Week during soccer and basketball seasons.

Parker leads the team with an 87.83 average.
