Individually, Pittston Area’s Kaylene Sutkowski has swum in the shadows of Sam Scialpi and Michele Fernando all season.
But in the Lady Patriots biggest meet of the season, Sutkowski stole the spotlight as part of two winning relay teams while also grabbing a first and second individually to pace PA to a victory over rival Wyoming Area.
For her efforts, Kaylene has been named The Sunday Dispatch Pittston Area Athlete of the Week for the week Feb. 7-13.
Sutkowski won the 200 Free by half a length with a time of 2:17.25, and then finished less than one second out of first in the 100 Free. Kaylene also was part of the winning 200 and 400 Free relay teams for the 10th time this season.
Posters of Kaylene can be seen at Tony’s Pizza in Pittston, and Smart Designs and Graphics in Wyoming, sponsors of the Pittston Area Athlete of the Week.
