With a second week of fall sports action in the books, the Missoulian has an impressive group of Prep Athletes of the Week candidates, sponsored by Republic Services.
Football, soccer, volleyball, cross country and golf athletes have all made their marks. Each week, the Missoulian sports department nominates four boys and four girls for the honor “Prep Athletes of the Week.”
Readers will be able to vote for one girl and one boy in polls that appear by noon each Sunday at Missoulian.com. Voting will be open through 5 p.m. on Tuesday.
The winners will be announced in the Missoulian’s Thursday edition and will appear in a special advertisement, sponsored by Republic Services, each Sunday.
