Athlete of the Week: Voting for the week of May 7-11

It has been yet another crazy spring sports season.

Throughout the season, athletes have had to adjust to an ever-changing forecast, which last week featured a mix of warm and chilly temperatures. Despite the weather fluctuations, local athletes have remained on fire as they pick up momentum for the end of the season.

Let’s take a look back on the top athletic performances of last week, with the Times Herald Athlete of the Week vote. The vote will continue until noon Wednesday with the winner announced in Sunday’s print edition of the Times Herald

Olivia Rousey, Port Huron

The Big Reds freshman tennis player is well ahead of the curve. She won the No. 2 singles flight of the Macomb Area Conference Blue Division Tournament by defeating the No. 1 seeded player, 6-3, 6-0. That helped Rousey improve to 9-1 on the season.
