Here are this week’s candidates for CAL Winter Athlete of the year!
Braheme Day, shot put, Bridgeton: Sprinters often soak up all the glory, but Day absolutely owned his competition this winter. The junior won the South Jersey Group II title with a throw of 68 feet, 11 inches, the second-best thrown in state history. He went on to win the New Jersey Meet of Champions and Eastern States Championship, where he launched the country's longest throw of the season - 70 feet, 8 inches.
Kristine Miller, girls basketball, Cedar Creek: There were plenty of standouts in girls basketball this season, but Miller's ability to lead the Pirates to a state championship sets her apart from the competition. The junior forward averaged over 20 points per game during the team's Group I state playoff run and served as a leader for the league's youngest team.
Phil Bakuckas, wrestling, Hammonton: The senior became the first Blue Devil to reach a state final and was an unstoppable force in South Jersey's 160-pound weight class, racking up Region 8 and District 30 titles. Bakuckas finishes his career at Hammonton as the school's all-time wins leader (132) and has accepted a scholarship to Rutgers University.
