The past two seasons have been a struggle on the hardwoods for the Wyoming Area boys but one player the Warriors have been able to count on is 6’6 center Cody Gates.
So it was no surprise when Gates led the way as Wyoming Area won its first WVC Division II game of the season, a 62-45 win over Berwick.
For his effort, Cody has been named The Sunday Dispatch Wyoming Area Athlete of the Week for the week Jan. 10-16.
Gates scored season-high 17 points as the Warriors scored a season-best 62 points in the victory over the Dawgs in Exeter.
Posters of Cody can been seen at Januzzi’s Pizza in Wyoming, and Smart Designs and Graphics in Wyoming, sponsors of the Wyoming Area Athlete of the Week.
