Guervil, Duke named Bojangles Athletes of the Week

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. --- Tusculum sprinter Widchard Guervil and basketball forward Kendrea Duke have been named the Bojangles Athletes of the Week.

Guervil, a freshman from Fort Myers, Florida, finished third in his heat and fifth overall in the 60 meters at last weekend's ETSU Invitational.  In Saturday's finals, he posted a time of 6.92 seconds.  On Friday, he posted a time of 6.86 seconds in the 60-meter preliminaries which is a NCAA Division II provisional qualifying mark. It was the fourth-fastest among the 103 competitors in the event and better than the provisional qualifying time of 6.88 seconds.

Duke, a junior from Hendersonville, Tennessee, averaged 14.0 points and 5.5 rebounds in a 1-1 week for the Pioneers. Duke came off the bench in both games for the Pioneers, scoring 11 points and grabbing seven rebounds in a loss to fourth-ranked Carson-Newman on Wednesday, then tallying 17 points with four rebounds in a 72-65 victory over Newberry on Saturday. Duke shot 7-for-12 from the field and 14-for-16 from the foul line in the two games, and also had a pair of blocked shots. Duke, who made her season debut on Jan. 6 at Lenoir-Rhyne, is averaging 9.3 points and 4.7 rebounds in three games this season for the Pioneers.

The Tusculum College Athlete of the Week Award is sponsored by Bojangles, located at 3240 Andrew Johnson Highway in Greeneville.  The Bojangles Athlete of the Week Award honors one male and one female athlete each week from an in-season sport.
