Week 4 Athlete of the Week nominees

Each week during the 2019-2020 school year, there will be an Athlete of the Week feature.

The Delaware State News Athlete of the Week will be nominated and chosen completely by our readers.

There will be a nominating period starting on Fridays at 2 p.m. and going through Monday at noon. A voting period will follow from Monday at 5 p.m. through Wednesday at 5 p.m. This will happen every week during the high school sports seasons.

This process will all be done online. You can find the Athlete of the Week nominating link on our website, delawarestatenews.net. 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 county.

The winner will appear in print and online each Friday.
