The MassLive Athlete of the Week program runs weekly until the end of the spring season. Each week, the MassLive sports team determines five nominees based on their performance and publishes those names for a reader survey.
Voting will take place until 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, when the winner will be announced.
We rotate between boys and girls every week and the winners cannot be named a second time this school year.
