Voting is open for the next cincinnati.com Athlete of the Week ballot, presented by Mercy Health, for the week spanning Aug. 23-29, 2021.
Enquirer/Cincinnati.com readers can vote for their favorite high school athletes of the week on their desktop, the Cincinnati.com mobile web or Cincinnati.com App once per hour by scrolling down to ballots listed below.

The Athlete of the Week voting occurs each week during all high school sports seasons and recognizes athletes across all sports.
If you can't see the ballot when you scroll to the bottom of this story, try refreshing the link or clearing the cache in your browser. Voters can cast one vote per hour per device. You do not have to be a subscriber to vote.
Please be aware: The Enquirer's voting system only recognizes one vote per WiFi IP address, so consider taking your phone off WiFi to vote each hour if you're sharing it with multiple people.
One very important note: Please do not email your votes; they will not count. You must use the ballots below for them to count. Nominating and voting are not the same things. You nominate someone ahead of a ballot. You vote for them once they are on the ballot. In other words, please do not send an email or tag us on Twitter after the ballots are released saying, "I want to nominate (athlete already on the ballot)" or "I want to vote for (insert athlete's name)."

Athletes are on this week's ballot based on information made available to The Enquirer, and nominations made over the past week including scores and results emailed to [email protected]
