BRATTLEBORO — Abby Broadley has prevailed once again.

The Bellows Falls junior, who won her first three cross-country races this season, earned 122 votes to run away with Brattleboro Reformer Athlete of the Week honors for Sept. 27 to Oct. 3.

“Hardest-working runner out there,” noted Heather Harty Waryas on her online ballot.

The two-time defending Division 3 individual state champion started her 2020 season with back-to-back victories in Thetford. She then broke her school’s course record during the Russ Pickering Invitational.

“Her dedication is amazing,” Jamie Dansereau said of Broadley. “She is also a hard-working student, a true friend to her peers and an incredible artist.”

The BF speed demon is now in the running for one of the Marina’s $25 gift certificates.

The nominees for the Oct. 3-10 Brattleboro Reformer Athlete of the Week are shown below. In order to vote, simply go to www.facebook.com/ReformerSports and “like” your choice.
