    Ok, I hesitated doing this, because of course hardly any of you know her. But she'll kill me if I don't use every network at my fingertips to get the word out.

    If you don't mind, go here and vote for my daughter. She's a sophomore at Wheaton Warrenville South High School (Chicago suburbs) and she was nominated for Athlete of the Week. She threw two shutouts last week in two wins for her high school softball team. Voting closes at 6:00pm today!

    Edit: I just realized of course you don't know her name. She's Katey (listed as Katie) Pierce, so vote for her, not the other nominees. :D

    Done. Hope she wins.

    Here's a related story.

    My youngest daughter's history teacher had a daughter up for VB player of the week. He had all the kids in all of his classes take out their phones and vote for his daughter for 2 straight days. His daughter won that week. We saw him the next week and brought this up to him. His response, "I was hoping that wouldn't get out."

    If you can't shamelessly use your high school students as a phone bank what's the point in teaching

    I’m going to have to do some research on the rest of the nominees and probably dig in to the advanced stats before I vote.

    These were middle school students so it's even more true.

    You guys are making a mockery of the mySuburbanLife.com Most Valuable Athlete award and it sickens me.

    I dunno, the kid who threw a complete game shutout with 11 K's is pretty impressive as well...

    This was always a lot of fun as an athlete growing up in the Chicagoland suburbs. I remember our school getting behind most people when they were up for the award. Congrats to your daughter, and go Tigers:)

    Best wishes to your daughter.

    Whether she wins or not, pitching 2 shut outs is something to be proud of!

    Thank you everyone! She didn't win, but it was fun just being up for an award. She's only a sophomore, she's got two more years to win some of these things.
