Sophomore Tyler Polman was named Independence Athlete of the Week for the week ending Oct. 5, 2004. Polman won his second straight Chagrin Valley Conference cross country championship with a time of 16:04 at the Perry Outdoor YMCA.

His performance also led the Blue Devils to the team title in the Valley Division.
