Lauren Miller, SLP girls soccer, senior forward/midfielder
It was a big week for Park last week, as the Orioles won twice to get to 5-6-1 on the season. And in Thursday's 6-1 triumph over Spring Lake Park, Miller came up huge—she had three goals and added two assists.
Davon Malone, SLP football, sophomore running back
The Orioles are just 1-3 this year, but Malone is certainly doing his part. He already has 287 rushing yards on the season on just 45 carries—an impressive average of 6.4 yards per rush. He has also racked up four touchdowns. Last week, in a loss at Chisago Lakes, he had 11 carries for 51 yards and a score.
