The "Fidelis Care High School Sports Athlete of the Week" program will recognize players who are stars on and off-the-field. Student athletes from the Capital Region, southern Vermont and western Massachusetts who demonstrate leadership, dedication and perseverance in school and in the community can be nominated by coaches, athletic directors and sports fans for this honor.
The program will recognize not only the best athletes on each team, but also those who dedicate time to youth groups, volunteer organizations, or have overcome a personal obstacle or illness.
Send your story ideas and nominations to the WNYT Sports Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to all of our athletes!
