The Caledonian-Record is seeking your help in naming Athletes of the Week during the 2021 high school sports seasons.
The CR 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 sports seasons, members of the public may vote for a top girls athlete and a top boys athlete (see below for this week’s ballot).
There are only New Hampshire athletes on this week’s ballot, with Vermont indoor varsity sports on pause.

More On Each Candidate
Josh Robie, Profile basketball: Freshman Josh Robie scored 13 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter as Profile rallied to top Lin-Wood 57-43 to give Mitchell Roy his first win as a varsity coach. The Lumberjacks led 35-31 after three quarters, but Robie and the Patriots roared back, outscoring the visitors 26-8 over the final eight minutes.
Kaiden Dowse, Colebrook basketball: The sophomore guard had 18 points and seven boards while helping spark the defense as the Mohawks knocked off rival Groveton 60-57 for their first win of the season. Dowse scored the final six points for the winners, including a go-ahead jumper and a pair of free throws.
Brody LaBounty, White Mountains basketball: The Spartans’ leading scorer Tyler Hicks was out nursing an injury, so the junior point guard took it upon himself to carry the load. LaBounty splashed five threes and finished with 27 points to lead WM’s 55-36 rout of Lisbon.
Josh Finkle, Littleton basketball: The energetic Littleton senior forward has helped set the tone early this season for the defending champs, including a 15-point, seven-rebound effort in a rout of Gorham and an 18-point, 11-rebound outburst in a 69-40 blowout of Colebrook.
Cam Tenney-Burt, Woodsville basketball: The Woodsville junior forward took advantage of his one game last week, the sweet-shooting swingman pumping in 23 points in the Engineers’ rout of Profile.
