Our Athlete of the Week is Brian Heekin. He really surprised me at Targhee. He has kind of been our dark horse this year – he’s never really been the hard charger of the group, but he ended up having the highest place out of whole SVSEF crew this weekend, finishing seventh. Brian has been working really hard, and with all this soft snow he has really been pushing himself; it showed this past weekend in competition.Conor Davis
