Athlete of the Week

Cold Springs' Ethan Edgeworth.

Ethan Edgeworth couldn't be caught on Saturday.

In fact, the Cold Springs freshman hasn't been caught all season long.

Edgeworth breezed by his Class 1A-2A competition at the 16th annual Kudzu Hills Invitational, speeding to a personal-best time of 16:27.18 — the quickest in the meet across all classifications — and crossing the finish line more than 90 seconds ahead of the runner-up to lead the Eagles to the team title.

Additionally, Edgeworth has won all four meets he's competed in this year, including the Pepsi XC Challenge, Chickasaw Trails Invitational and Southern Showcase.

He is The Times' Athlete of the Week.

Edgeworth edged Vinemont's Ethan Lemons, who won the Class 3A-4A division on Saturday.

Lemons, who had the second-best time of the meet (16:28.12) has three victories and a second-place finish for the Eagles so far this season.

Athlete of the Week, which is sponsored by Mitch Smith Chevrolet, is open to all local athletes.

Nominations can be sent to with the person's name, school and statistics.
