The first full week of the new year brought about great performances in wrestling, basketball, skiing, and swimming and diving for the WyoPreps Athlete of the Week award. We have narrowed the pool of candidates to finalists, after receiving nominations and considering the best performances for this week's awards. These nominees performed well during competitions between Jan. 2, 2024, and Jan. 6, 2024. Nominations for this week are closed!

As promised, fans can vote to help us decide the winner. Your vote is counted as part of the overall deliberation for each week's Athlete of the Week honors. Winning the poll does not guarantee a selection. Season totals and previous week’s results do not carry over to the next week. Only the week of competition listed in the dates above is considered.

WyoPreps will also contemplate various factors in its weekly decision such as the level of competition, the type of competition, the size of the competition field, the importance of the competition, and more. The poll is simply one piece of a big puzzle, and we value your opinion.

The official winners are announced each Wednesday. WyoPreps will feature female and male student-athletes throughout the year thanks to our partners at Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Wyoming.

If you don't see someone who should be recognized, nominate them based on their performance during the current week. Nominations are only accepted from Fridays at 5 p.m. through Mondays at 9 a.m.
