The votes are in and Danville soccer’s Ava Marshia and St. Johnsbury soccer’s Jorge Trade are the Caledonian-Record Athletes of the Week (Oct. 4-10).
Marshia, a senior attacker, pumped in three assists as Danville knocked off host Richford 4-2. She then scored twice as Danville topped Enosburg 5-1 for its fifth win in six games.
As voted on by the public, Marshia tallied 44% of the vote to beat out fellow AOW candidates Taylor Farnsworth of St. J field hockey, Mya Brown of Profile soccer, Sofia Nikitina of North Country XC and Leah Krull of Woodsville soccer.
Trade, a junior midfielder, scored at 14:51 of the second half and the defense did the rest as the Hilltoppers stopped a five-game slide with a 1-0 win at Brattleboro.
As voted on by the public, Trade tallied 36.9% of the vote to top fellow AOW candidates Cooper Calkins of Danville soccer, Aidan Poginy of Lake Region soccer, Quentin Thomas of Lyndon football and James Cilwik of North Country XC.
