The votes are in and Lyndon softball’s Isabelle Priest is the Caledonian-Record Girls Athlete of the Week (May 31-June 6).
The junior delivered a single, double, three walks and three RBI, including a game-ending RBI double, as the top-seeded Vikings rolled past Otter Valley and into the Division II semifinals.
As voted on by the public, Priest tallied 30.0% of the vote to beat out fellow AOW candidates Lizzy Jones of St. Johnsbury track and field, Mairen Tierney of St. Johnsbury girls lacrosse, Morgan Wagstaff of Woodsville and Nina Seemann of Lyndon track and field.
Online voting at caledonianrecord.com began Monday, June 7 and closed at midnight on Thursday, June 10.
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, June 14.
Please nominate deserving high school athletes by sending an email to email@example.com (Subject Line: Athlete of the Week).
