For girls soccer, I would like to write in a candidate. Her name is Katie Griswold, a Junior at Youngstown Cardinal Mooney. She plays soccer, runs track, and plays basketball for Mooney. She has been all state in soccer, made in to regionals in track, and is a two time letter winner in basketball. In soccer, she is a 3 year starter and scored 35 goals this past season and has 69 in her career at Mooney. She is on course to score over 100 goals at Mooney and would become their all time leading scorer. In her three years at Mooney, the team has made it to the regionals.
In track, she made it to regionals in Ravenna in the 400m.
Katie has committed to play soccer at Butler University in Indianapolis, IN. Butler is a Div 1 school. She has been offered a 5 year full athletic scholarship. Katie's grade point average is 3.93.

Jamison of Austintown did something by winning 4 state titles that very few have ever done. He is the athlete of the year in my opinion.

i agree apollo, how does a sophmore get on this list? final four in volleyball with a senior laden team. nothing against her, but there are so many more seniors in the area that accomplished so much more. her time will come.

I agree that the choices should have been limited to seniors. Scullion will get her chance down the road. Too many good athletes ahead of her. Her chances are slim because of that to win and she shouldn't be a repeat, so Vindy messed that one up. I am voting for Katie Griswold as well for a write in!! Schiffauer should have been on the list, too.
