Each week, our HomeTeam staffers will nominate one male and one female Hot Shot athlete from each of the counties we cover, then we turn the voting over to our readers. These nominations span Saturday, Sept. 8 through Friday, Sept. 14. The winners get a free T-shirt and bragging rights over every other school in the area. Read up on what made our nominees stand out, then vote — until noon Monday — below.
Logan McGee, Hudson volleyball: The senior outside hitter recorded 20 kills and 30 digs in the Cobras’ five-set win over Zephyrhills to help secure Hudson’s first win of the season.
Kellyanne Hurst, Plant City golf: The junior shot 1-under 35 (low medalist) at Heritage Harbor in a loss to Steinbrenner on Monday and 39 (low medalist) in seven-stroke win vs. Durant the following day at River Hills.Female nominees
