Joe Denoyer - April 4, 2018 7:27 am

Liberal track athlete Dusty Torres is the Hay Rice and Associates Athlete of the Week.  The senior won two gold medals at Winfield Thursday.  He won the 100 in 11.13 and the 400 in 51.16.

Torres had the best time in the 400 in Kansas last year at 48.83 in Goddard. He also ran a 10.83 in the 100 last season.  He won the WAC in the 100, 400, and 4×400 a year ago.  He was second in the WAC to teammate Austin Mullins in the 200.  Torres was then unable to compete at regionals due to an injury.  As a sophomore he was 2nd in the 400 and 3rd in the 100.  He won WAC in four events as a freshman. Torres has helped the Redskins win the WAC the past two seasons and helped them take 3rd at state in 2016.

Liberal hosts the 5 State Relays Friday at the Gary Cornelsen Sports Complex.
