Topeka High junior football player Isaiah Kincade and Hayden sophomore tennis standout Ainzley Zulueta have been named the Dan Key Farmers Insurance Agency Rising Stars of the Week for last week.
The Dan Key Agency will recognize top Shawnee County underclassmen throughout the 2022-2023 school year.
Here’s a brief look at the accomplishments of Kincade and Zulueta last week:
ISAIAH KINCADE, Topeka High
Kincade, a 6-foot, 190-pound junior, helped lead Topeka High to a 34-21 Centennial League win over Emporia last Friday at Hummer Sports Park, the 1-3 Trojans' first win of the season.
Kincade carried the ball 15 times for 104 yards, including a victory-clinching 61-yard touchdown run, and he caught eight passes for 84 yards.
AINZLEY ZULUETA, Hayden
Zulueta, the defending Class 4A state singles champion, won her second straight city singles title last Thursday at Kossover Tennis Center, improving to 19-1 on the season and leading the Wildcats to the city team championship by a 26-25 margin over Seaman.
Zulueta took a 6-4, 6-3 victory in the championship match over Seaman senior Lauren Sweeney, a 2021 5A state champion in doubles.
