Girls Track & Field Athlete of the Year finalists
We took a great many nominees, and somehow narrowed that pool down to a solid finalist group. Now we ask you to VOTE for ONE LAST FINALIST to join these young ladies. Then, BLITZ will vote Heisman-style (ranking the finalists) through our private internal voting panel to determine the Athlete of the Year. Vote below or at www.blitzsportsga.com/polls for the last finalist, through April 25 at 3 PM!
REMEMBER, these are unprecedented times. For track & field, that means we had two choices – fail to recognize an athlete of the year, or go ahead based on mostly data from the known athletes who were set for a big year (based off last season’s nominee list). We don’t want to go without honoring someone, so we chose the latter.
