Each week during the school year, the Daily Sentinel sports department picks two Peak Performers — one boy and one girl — as the area's top prep athletes.

These athletes are not nominated for the High School Sports Award, the list of which is released in the spring.

Marcus LaBonde, Fruita Monument High School Basketball

The junior guard led the Wildcats to their 10th-straight victory with a win over Grand Junction. He scored 17 points and went 11 for 13 from the free-throw line, and handed out several assists.

Sarah Cook, Grand Junction High School Swimming

The freshman placed 4th in the 100-yard breaststroke and 6th in the 100 butterfly at the Class 4A State Swimming Championships. She was also part of the 5th-place 200-freestyle relay team.
