The votes are in and Lyndon basketball’s Kadienne Whitcomb and Lyndon hockey’s Aiden Hale are the Caledonian-Record Athletes of the Week (Jan. 3-9).
Whitcomb, a senior sharp-shooter, hit double figures in three games — 11 in a 59-39 win over Lake Region, 12 in a rout of Harwood and 11 in a 56-51 victory over Spaulding — as the Vikings ran their win streak to five.
As voted on by the public, Whitcomb tallied 35.2% of the vote to beat out fellow AOW candidates Ainsely Savage of White Mountains basketball, Brooke White of St. Johnsbury indoor track and field, Lauren Joy of Blue Mountain basketball and Sophie Bell of Profile alpine skiing.
Hale, the senior right-winger, popped in a pair of goals as the Vikings powered past Missisquoi 5-2.
As voted on by the public, Hale tallied 37.9% of the vote to top fellow AOW candidates Tyler Hicks of White Mountains basketball, Cam Davidson of Woodsville basketball, Mike Hampson of Littleton basketball and Christian Young of Danville basketball.
Online voting at caledonianrecord.com began Monday, Dec. 10 and closed at midnight on Thursday, Jan. 13.
The Caledonian-Record covers seven high schools in New Hampshire’s North Country (Littleton, White Mountains, Profile, Lisbon, Woodsville, Groveton and Colebrook) and seven in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom (St. Johnsbury, Lyndon, Danville, Lake Region, North Country, Hazen and Blue Mountain).
This week, and every week during the three high school sports seasons, members of the public can vote online for a top girls athlete and a top boys athlete.
Next week’s nominees will be announced at caledonianrecord.com on Monday, Jan. 17.
