Benton's Claire Allen tops the Week 2 Shreveport Times poll

Benton’s Claire Allen secured enough votes this week to win the Times’ Athlete of the Week online poll, sponsored by Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers and the Shreveport-Bossier Sports Commission.

An outstanding cross country athlete for the Lady Tigers, Allen is Benton’s first winner and second consecutive cross country winner of the 2022-23 school year.

Allen and his supporters garnered 20,265 votes, a solid 46.2% of the 43,838 votes cast in the weekly online recognition. Those numbers allowed Allen to pass a field of nine additional candidates, including second-place Amiyah Chatman, a Homer cheerleader, who ran a strong run for recognition with 11,329 votes (25.8%).

Allen will receive a duffel bag, a packed lunch and a few additional gadgets courtesy of Raising Cane’s.
