Times – Alex Adcock tops Week 9 Shreveport Times Athlete of the Week voting

Captain Shreve’s Alex Adcock secured enough votes this week to win the Times online poll for Athlete of the Week, sponsored by Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers and the Shreveport-Bossier Sports Commission.

A standout cross country runner for the Gators, Adcock is the first Captain Shreve winner of the 2021-22 school year. He joins previous winners Mariah Hintze (Ruston) Taylor McCabe(Northwood) and Daly Nagot (Benton).

Adcock and his supporters racked up 17,632 votes, a solid 37.7% of the 46,826 votes cast in the weekly online recognition. Those numbers allowed Adcock to top a field of nine additional candidates, including second-place Lindsey Deaver, a Northwood volleyball player, who made a strong run for the recognition with 11,207 votes (23.9%).

Adcock will receive a backpack, a boxed lunch combo and some additional swag courtesy of Raising Cane’s.

In the recent District 1-5A cross country meet, Adcock finished in 17:09.11 for a seventh-place finish for the Gators.
