State College Area runner Will Cather is the Centre Daily Times Male Athlete of the Week.
Cather played a big part in helping the Little Lions end Altoona’s 18-year reign in the District 6 Class AAA Track & Field Championships. Cather won the 1,600 meters (4:27.30) and 800 (1:55.76). He also finished third in the 3,200 (9:59.82) as State College piled up 238 team points, 32 more than Altoona.
Cather and many of his teammates will run in the PIAA Championships, which begin Friday at Shippensburg University.
