Vote for This Week’s Athlete of the Week [10/24]
Turns out nothing gets past Middle Township goalkeeper Tanner Kerr, including 97.3 ESPN’s High School Athlete of the Week honors. Tanner’s stellar season so far helped him take last week’s award.
Meanwhile, we have a new batch of local student-athletes this week who have proven themselves worthy in their respective fields.
