Stellar play in September resulted in Athlete of the Month nominations for Champlain Valley Union High’s KK Logan in field hockey and Konnor Fleming for football.

Others are Brittany Pfaff of Rice Memorial High soccer, Jenna Griffith of Colchester High cross country, Jessica Edwards of St. Michael’s College cross country and Courtney Chadburn of Castleton State College soccer.
