CRANFORD - Congratulations to this week’s Cranford High School Athletes of the Week, Ryan Aszklar & Lauren Williamson.

Aszklar, a junior on the winter track team, led the Cougars to a 9th place team finish at the Union County Championships this past weekend with a personal best throw in the shot put of 38’5”.

"It's really cool," said Aszklar. "I didn't really expect (to be named athlete of the week). I started track last year in the spring. It was just something I wanted to do and most of my friends were doing it."

Williamson, a senior on the varsity basketball team, tallied 16 points along with five rebounds against Union Catholic on Saturday and scored a career-high 25 points against Watchung Hills on Monday.

"I think we can make it to counties. I think we can win the tournament if we just keep working hard and pressuring the ball," said Williamson. "Everybody is starting to step up and get more comfortable with the ball, leading to us winning more."
