This week’s Weekly Citizen Athlete of the Week, brought to you by Rouses Market, is senior track performer Leah Scott of Dutchtown.

At the Outdoor Track & Field State Meet at LSU on Saturday, Scott won Class 5A state titles in both the triple jump (40-1.25) and the long jump (18-6).

It completed a brilliant high-school career for Scott that yielded eight state championships.

Her big day helped the Lady Griffins earn a seventh-place finish.
