City athlete of week

September 14, 2001


Class: Senior.

Sport: Cross country.

The week: Riley won the Topeka West Invitational, completing the 5-kilometer race in 16 minutes, 30 seconds, to help Lawrence High capture its second meet of the season.

Comment: "He had an excellent race," LHS coach Dick Reamon said. "He's almost like a coach on the course and understands running so well because it's part of his family background. The week before (at Overland Park Aquinas meet) he tried to force the race and he ran out of gas. On Saturday, he was able to finish what he started."
