Who was the best girls athlete on the Coast for the week of November 20? Vote now.

Basketball and soccer stars are back on the docket for this week’s girl’s athlete of the week poll.

Through at least the end of the calendar year, the Sun Herald will be running a separate Athlete of the Week poll to highlight the many girls dominating their sport around the region.

This is not a scientific poll, and you can vote as many times as you’d like until voting ends at noon Monday, Nov. 27, at sunherald.com.

If you would like to nominate a candidate for next week’s poll, send in game or match stats to swatkins@sunherald.com. Stats must be from an event that occurs this week.
