Here are the best prep artists from the past week:

Savannah Franzoy, Pueblo West Women’s Soccer

As a senior, Franzoy scored both goals in Pueblo West’s 2-0 South-Central League win over Centennial on Thursday at Dutch Clark Stadium. It was the first time a team had beaten the Bulldogs in the league in eight years.

Sofia Contreras, golfer from Pueblo Central

Only a freshman, Contreras won the first big girls golf tournament of the season last Wednesday. She shot a 91 in cold, windy conditions at the Centennial Invitational at the Walking Stick Golf Course. Contreras had a birdie and six pars on his round.

Only three players on the pitch finished below 100.

Abbe Cid, Pueblo West Girls Golf

As a sophomore, Cid finished third in the East Invitational Women’s Golf Tournament last Wednesday at the Walking Stick Golf Course. She had a birdie and two pars in her round of 99.

Bryant Armijo-Martin, Centennial Baseball

The sophomore had his best day at the plate of the season with two hits, two runs scored and three RBIs in the Bulldogs’ 17-4 win over Palmer. He also had a double.

Will Hamler, Rye Baseball

The sophomore catcher played plate at the recent Buena Vista tournament. Hamler was 7 for 8 with six runs scored and four RBIs with no strikeouts. He improved his batting average to .526 with the performance.

Keller Ausbun, Pueblo South Baseball

The junior helped the Colts to a 15-5 non-league win Monday over Widefield with a solid performance at the plate. He had three hits, scored two runs and drove in two more. Two of his hits were a double and a triple.

Martinez, a senior, was equally impressive at the Hornet Invitational last weekend. She took first places in the 100 and 300 meter hurdles as well as the 200 meter individual.
