Tioga County Sports Report
TIOGA COUNTY — Here it is — the first-ever Tioga County Peoples Choice Awards. This is an opportunity for the readership of the Tioga County Sports Report and Valley Sports Report websites to select a "Peoples Performer of the Year" in each varsity sport.
During the month of July, followers of both websites may vote for the peoples performer in whichever varsity sport(s) they choose. Beginning July 3 and ending July 31, votes may be cast by messaging the Tioga County Sports Report Facebook page or emailing email@example.com.
We won't tell you how to vote or question who you vote for, but you should pick an athlete who best represents the sport he or she participates in. They may be the star of the team. They may be the team leader. They may be a kid who doesn't possess great athletic ability, but pours their heart and soul into the sport.
The rules for voting are simple:
• To be eligible athletes must have been on the varsity roster for that sport during the 2019-20 school year.
• Athletes from the Candor, Newark Valley, Owego, S-VE, SVEC, Tioga and Waverly varsity teams are eligible.
• You may cast one vote in each varsity sport.
• You may vote for the same athlete in different sports provided he or she participated in each of those sports.
• Voting is open to anyone who follows either of the two websites. There is no minimum age limit, although to be fair, voters should be old enough to cast their own votes.
• Nominations must include athlete's name, school and sport, as well as the voter's name.
This contest is being conducted for the enjoyment of the athletes and the readership of the websites. These awards are not intended to boost an athlete's "recruitability" at the collegiate level.
NOTE: Even though spring sports were canceled, award winners will still be recognized. If you are unsure of an athlete's varsity status, send me the name and I will verify it with the respective coach.
