Girls Track & Field Athlete of the Year Nominees

Congrats to our 2021 Girls Track & Field Athlete of the Year nominees. Unlike most other sports, we simply take the top performers from each team by how they fared first at state, then at the region/area level. From this group, we will narrow down to a finalist pool and allow the public to choose the LAST FINALIST before putting it to an internal vote to determine Athlete of the Year.
