Post Falls track and field standout Capri Sims voted WaFd Bank Idaho High School Athlete of the Week

Congratulations to the Trojans' field thrower for being voted SBLive’s WaFd Bank Idaho High School Athlete of the Week for May 1-May 6!

Congratulations to Post Falls track and field athlete Capri Sims for being voted SBLive’s WaFd Bank Idaho High School Athletes of the Week for May 1-May 6!

The Central Washington University basketball signee continues to rack up personal-best marks in track and field. In back-to-back meets, Sims has set new personal heights in the shot put. She won the event with a state-leading throw of 44 feet, 9 inches at the District I Meet of Champions (and has since increased that distance in districts).

Sims collected 55.0% of the overall vote and finished ahead of teammate Annastasia Peters, who had 12.5% of the vote.

We are currently accepting WaFd Bank Player of the Week nominations. If you would like to nominate an athlete, please email or message us on Twitter or Instagram at @sbliveid.

Here are the other athletes who were nominated for the week of May 1-May 6:


Gatlin Bair, Burley boys track and field: Every week, he keeps doing something more spectacular in the sprints. On Saturday, he lowered his personal-best time in the 200-meter dash to 20.47 seconds (in a headwind) at the BYU Invitational. It is now the No. 2 prep mark in the country.

Victor Byaundaombe, Capital boys track and field: Regained the state lead in the triple jump (personal-best 47 feet, 81/2 inches) with his jump to win the Boise City Championships, holding off Bishop Kelly's Cole Miller (46-11, No. 3 in state).

Trevor Cogley, Lake City boys track and field: In back-to-back weeks, lowered his lifetime-best time in the 400-meter dash, this time to 48.11 seconds at the District I Meet of Champions at Post Falls High School. It is the top time in Idaho.

Jorja Crider, Middleton softball: She has no problem with the long ball. The junior extended her season-best run of consecutive games (five) with home runs when she parked one in a come-from-behind 15-11 victory over Bishop Kelly. She leads the state with 21 home runs this spring.

McKinley Hill, Pocatello softball: It's been an all-state caliber season for the Thunder catcher, who came up big in five games last week (5-0). She had 10 hits (six extra-base hits, including two home runs) and drove in 12 runs, including a season-high six-RBI showing against Shelley, to pace undefeated Pocatello.

Owen Mangini, Lake City baseball: With the 5A Inland Empire League title on the line, the Timberwolves' third baseman hit the game-winning two-run double in the seventh inning in an 11-9 win over Coeur d'Alene. Mangini had three hits in the game, including a home run.

Annastasia Peters, Post Falls girls track and field: Took back the lead in Idaho in the 1,600-meter run with a personal-best 4-minute, 56.45-second showing at the District I Meet of Champions. It was the second time she recorded a time of less than five minutes this spring.

Chris Ricard, Lewiston baseball: The North Region player of the year showed by against Post Falls, crushing two home runs and a double in a 17-0 victory. He also had a double in the abbreviated 5A IEL nightcap.

Kaliann Scoresby, Thunder Ridge softball: The junior had a big day against Highland, tossing a complete-game no-hitter (gave up unearned run), striking out 18 while driving in the game-winning run with her seventh-inning single in a come-from-behind 2-1 victory. It was her third no-hitter of the season.
