During the week she was dominating in the distance events in the pool at the 2016 state swimming championships, Park City’s Sienna Senn also owned the voting for our Week 19 PrepsUtah.com player of the week for the 2015-2016 school sports. The overall voting turnout for the week of Feb. 8, which featured five state champion swimmers, was smaller than some of our recent polls, but a large percentage of the nearly 1,000 votes went to four-event state champion Senn.
She finished with just under 90 percent of the votes to separate herself from the other female swimmers in the poll. Megan Draney (Desert Hills), Mariah Gassaway (Viewmont), Zoe Phillips (Highland) and Meghan Rainier (East) split the remaining votes.
Senn won individual titles in the 200 and 500-yard freestyle. and the sophomore was also part of the Miners’ 200 and 400-yard free relay championship teams. Park City overwhelmed the field once again, winning both the 3A boys and girls team titles.
Each week, we select five new candidates for consideration by the followers of prep sports in the state of Utah as the Preps Utah athlete of the week. Readers vote online on our website at PrepsUtah.com and the winner is announced on Monday, when five new nominees are announced.
