McDonald’s KMAN Student Athlete of the Week!
Michael Melgares of Manhattan High School
Manhattan High’s boys track team finished tied for second at the 6A state meet last week. Their only two individual gold medals came from distance runner Michael Melgares. He swept the 1600 and 3200 meter runs to score 20 of Manhattan’s 57 team points. Melgares finished the mile in just over four minutes and 22 seconds and ran the two-mile in nine minutes and 17 seconds. Earlier this year, Melgares finished second in the 6A state cross country meet. He’ll be joining his brother Chris on a running scholarship at Kansas next season. Congratulations to Michael Melgares of Manhattan High School, the McDonald’s / KMAN “Student Athlete of the Week!”
