The nominees have been selected and the fan poll created. We need your votes.
Six fall sports athletes from the conference who stood out in competitions Oct. 30-Nov. 4, 2023, have been nominated by CatchMark SportsNet.
Time for you to vote, over and over. The poll can be found at the bottom of this story after brief capsules on the nominees. The poll closes at noon Friday, Nov. 10.
If an athlete has won a Player of the Week fan poll already this season, then he or she is not included in subsequent Player of the Week polls for the fall.
Athletes are listed alphabetically:
AUDREY HORTON, Shelby volleyball
The 5-foot-4 senior setter has worked well with standout hitter Navea Gauthier and their teammates as the Tigers captured a third straight district title last week. In a district semifinal sweep of Holton, Horton had 48 assists and two aces. In a four-set win over Morley Stanwood in the district finals at Hesperia, she finished with 56 assists and six aces.
BOBBY JAZWINSKI, Hart cross country
The Pirates freshman had a goal of winning a state title this season and he came very close. Jazwinski placed third in the MHSAA Division 3 state finals Saturday at Michigan International Speedway. He posted a time of 15:54.0. Jazwinski’s personal-record time this season was the 15:23.9 he ran in the West Michigan Conference Mega Meet Oct. 17 at Mason County Fairgrounds.
JESSICA JAZWINSKI, Hart cross country
The Pirates junior not only cruised to a second straight cross country state title on Saturday, she broke the MHSAA Division 3 finals record with her time of 17:08.8. She beat the rest of the field by nearly 41 seconds. Jazwinski, an All-American runner, led her team to a 10th-place finish at the state finals and helped send coaches Terry and Linda Tatro off to retirement on a high note.
ANNABELLE LOWMAN, Ludington cross country
This freshman picked a great time for her personal-record race. Lowman ran a time of 18:26.2, her PR by more than 42 seconds, en route to placing 14th in the MHSAA Division 2 cross country state finals Saturday at Michigan International Speedway. She led Ludington to a seventh-place finish as a team in the event.
CHUCK MEYERS, North Muskegon football
The 6-foot-2, 180-pound junior has been a monster from his linebacker position this season. That was especially the case in North Muskegon’s 27-24 comeback victory over Lawton Saturday in a Division 7 district championship game at Oakridge. Meyers notched a whopping 22 tackles, one for lost yardage, and he intercepted a pass off a deflection. He also caught two passes for 26 yards.
KYLE STRATTON, Whitehall football
The 5-foot-9, 175-pound senior quarterback and cornerback had a strong game even though the outcome wasn’t what he wanted in Whitehall’s 28-27 district finals loss to Big Rapids Friday night at Holton. Stratton scored on touchdown runs of 3 and 5 yards and he completed 12 of 16 passes for 241 yards and a TD. Defensively, he registered six tackles with a tackle for loss.
