This week's Sports Person of the Week is Ciara Gilroy of Lake Charles.

The ICCS Student broke a state record in the 800 meter for the 13 to 14 age group at the Hershey State Championship in Lafayette.

Her time of 2 minutes 24 seconds was also tops in a region of six states and Puerto Rico, which qualifies Gilroy for the Hershey National Track and Field finals in Pennsylvania.

Also from the area, Cejae Ceasar and Ian James qualified for the national meet. Congrats to Ciara Gilroy, our Sports Person of the week.
