The Caledonian-Record Athletes Of The Week: Ballots For Feb. 15-21

The Caledonian-Record is seeking your help in naming Athletes of the Week during the 2021 high school sports seasons.

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).

All voting is through the two ballots below. We will not accept votes through email or social media.

The two winners will be announced in a story published at caledonian-record.com on Fridays and in the newspaper on Saturdays.

Parker Paradice, Littleton Basketball: The do-everything senior guard began his week with a seven-assist, five-steal effort in the Crusaders’ 52-23 win over Gorham. Paradice ended the week by scoring 20 points, 18 in the final three frames, as Littleton stayed unbeaten and ended rival White Mountains’ nine-game win streak with a 44-37 victory.

Logan Young, Danville Basketball: The senior guard scored 23 points Saturday to key Danville to its third win in as many games, 73-46 over Fairfax. Young only missed two shots all game, going 4-for-4 from inside the arc, 6 of 6 at the foul line and 3 of 5 from distance. Young on defense also held his man scoreless in a top two-way outing.

Corbin Brueck, North Country Basketball: The senior guard pumped in 25 points, 16 in the second half, as the Falcons blazed past Mt Abraham 61-28 for their second rout in as many games.

Jadon Baker, Hazen Basketball: The Wildcats are off to another fast 3-0 start and the sophomore guard has helped key the Cats’ early success. He scored 13 points in a 76-48 win over Fairfax, then led the Cats in scoring (13) in a 54-42 victory over Peoples Academy.
