Athlete of the Week: Joe Wester


Jupiter High School’s Athlete of the Week for the week of Oct. 14 is junior Joe Wester who is on the cross country team.

Wester won the season opener, a conference title against Dwyer High School and a county championship. 

“It’s an honor…It shows I put in hard work and a lot of frame for my career,” Wester said.

Wester has been on cross country and track since his freshman year and has received multiple offers from universities to run for their institutions. It has been Wester’s dream to run in college since middle school.

Wester believes his biggest win of the year was at the county competition on Oct. 17, where he became the 2019 Palm Beach County Cross Country Champion.

Cross country has three more competitions this season, including regionals and states, where Wester hopes to break his personal record.
