    I’d like to have a write-in vote for Team of the Week. My vote goes to Kelsey Santagata for single handedly almost knocking off Trumbull High in the semis last night. A great player, and a great person.

    You can make a case for all of them, that’s why they are finalists and that is why there is a vote. It is the way we have always done it and will continue to….it works great and is meant to be fun too.

  3. Justine says:

    The award should go to the most deserving not the most votes. Especially because some schools don’t have school today and can vote

  4. Dave Ruden says:

    For the time being I am trying it this way. There were a few cases where people were falsely accusing others of hacking the vote.

    Can you put the numeric value instead of percent up please?
