Athlete of the Week nominees

The Delaware State News will feature a high school Athlete of the Week each week during the 2019-2020 school year.

The Athlete of the Week will be nominated and chosen by our readers. The nominating period will start at 2 p.m. on Friday and end at noon on Monday. A voting period will follow from 5 p.m. Monday through 5 p.m. Wednesday, using the link above.

This process will be performed exclusively online. When nominating an athlete, please include name, school and sport as well as a photo and brief description of why he or she deserves that week’s honor.

All nominations must be high school varsity athletes and come from high schools within Kent or Sussex counties.

The winner will appear in print and online each Friday.
