Athlete of the Week

Athlete of the Week Voting: Week of October 16th

Help us decide which male and female athlete should be honored for their outstanding efforts during last week’s local high school sports action.  While you may have a favorite school or athlete already, we still encourage you to read through the lists below and then click on the link to vote.  The winners will be announced later this week.

We have also included Team of the Week vote to honor the collective efforts of some of the top squads in the county.

Voting will remain open until Thursday at 7 pm.  Only one vote per email address will be allowed.

While athletes can be nominated multiple weeks, the winners will be removed and updates will be provided as the season progresses.

While this may be a vote and emotions can run high, this is intended to bring attention to some of the best performances from our local student-athletes.

Nominations, which are made working with the schools, are listed below in alphabetical order.

Please read about each nominee and then go vote who you feel is most deserving.
