Freshman Klaire Kovatch goes up for one of her 19 kills against Clark Fork during the District 13-C tournaments Oct. 28.

MISSOULA - Seeley-Swan High School freshman Klaire Kovatch earned the Missoulian's Prep Athlete of the Week last week. The Missoulian nominated Kovatch for her performance at the District 13-C tournament. She won the title by popular vote against Missoula Big Sky's Tilynn McGreevey, Arlee's Ashley Revis and Loyola Sacred Heart's Sam Clevenger.

Kovatch led with a game-high 19 kills to help the Lady Blackhawks upend top-seeded Clark Fork in the District 13-C volleyball title game. Both teams advanced to the divisional tournament. Kovatch added a block in the win and she had another team-leading nine kills against Lincoln on Friday.

"Winning Districts felt amazing!" wrote Kovatch in an email. "Seeing the team come together and play our best was the greatest confidence boost for us."

As a freshman Kovatch earned a spot as a starter on the varsity team. Kovatch attributed her improvement this year to the amount of playing time she had and playing at a higher level.

When Kovatch found out she had been nominated for the Prep Athlete of the Week she was surprised and excited to be nominated as a freshman. She beat out runner-up McGreevey for the honor by 66 votes.

"Getting the most votes and being recognized by the Missoulian meant a lot to me," wrote Kovatch. "I appreciate all the support from everyone who voted and came to watch us play."
