The votes are in and Profile’s Mya Brown and White Mountains baseball’s Brody LaBounty are the Caledonian-Record Athletes of the Week (May 2-8).
Brown, a sophomore, was 3-for-5 with a homer, three runs and five RBI in a 19-18 loss to Gorham. She then went 2-for-3 with three runs and three RBI while belting her third home run in three days against Pittsburg-Canaan.
As voted on by the public, Brown tallied 26.7% of the vote to beat out fellow AOW candidates Brydie Barton of Lyndon softball, Kyra Nelson of Blue Mountain softball, Sophia Shippee of St. Johnsbury lacrosse and Leah Krull of Woodsville softball.
LaBounty, a senior, tossed five innings, combining on a two-man shutout in the Spartans’ 7-0 win over rival Littleton. He then did it at the dish, going 3-for-3 with three RBI as unbeaten WMR topped Mascoma 13-0.
As voted on by the public, LaBounty tallied 35.1% of the vote to top fellow AOW candidates Luke Dudas of Lyndon baseball, Karson Clark of St. Johnsbury lacrosse, Aasha Gould of Hazen baseball and Cooper Calkins of Danville baseball.
