...who had Ohio's best individual performance this past week?
MaxPreps and JJHuddle are proud to announce that they will sponsor athletes of the week in girls basketball during the 2016-2017 school year.
Each week during the season (regular and post), there will be a fan-generated contest to tab two weekly winners. Each winner will receive awards (bracelets and certificates).How does it work?
Fans will nominate top performances (send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org) and nominees will also be selected from those schools that report stats on MaxPreps. We will announce the weekly finalists (up to 10) on MaxPreps and JJHuddle every Tuesday and voting will be conducted in a special poll. Voting will cease at noon on Monday. The winners (two per week) will be announced the next day along with the next week's nominees. The TOP TWO vote-getters will win the weekly awards.
Vote as many times as you want. It's a competition. Vote Now!
Last week over 441,000 votes were cast! And THREE girls generated over 100,000 votes each. Therefore, this week we are naming all three players winners.
