Waynesville High School senior Bryan O’Barr was named All-Conference after finishing eighth with a time of 17 minutes, 39.03 seconds at the Ozark Conference meet held Oct. 19 in Springfield, Missouri. He led the WHS boys’ team to a third-place finish, the best performance in WHS history at the OC meet.
O’Barr also competes in track and field for WHS.
He said he is inspired by, “The fact that sports are about more than just competing, that you learn life lessons that help positively influence others. That’s what motivates me to work hard and compete for more than myself.”
The Athlete of the Week is selected by the Waynesville R-VI School District.
