4-5 Sports Spotlight: Gunnar Pedersen

We continue our new Sports Spotlight segment, in which we give our local senior athletes a chance to be recognized, since they’re unable to play their final season of competition. You at home get to decide who gets put in the Sports Spotlight by sending us your nominations, and Sunday’s nomination comes from New Lisbon.

Gunnar Pedersen is the newest athlete to be under the Sports Spotlight.

He was a state qualifier in the triple jump, and was looking forward to push further in state competition this year. He’s described as the “kid that all coaches wished they had more of,” according to Athletic Director Brad Bever.

Bever added that Gunnar shows what small town athletics are all about, as he wears many hats as a 5 sport athlete.

If you have an athlete you know who you feel should be nominated, click here to get to our Sports Spotlight page.

There you’ll be invited to fill out a comprehensive nomination form. You can also email kkosirowski@wkbt.com photos and videos of your athlete that you’d like to include on air.
