NHTF Shout-Outs! Yes we do the HOKA Athlete of the Week, but that celebrates just 2 athletes. The Granite State typically has so many more stand out performances worthy of mentions! Similar to the point in interviews when the athletes give quick shout-outs, these will be quick! Additionally, we hope this becomes more of an interactive post where you all comment below if you think someone should get a shout-out who did not for their weekend performance! Enjoy!
Final regular season weekend before State Championships next Sunday! We expect the list below to grow by leaps and bounds next weekend! Congrats and good luck to all!
