With a goal of recognizing the accomplishments of more athletes, and because of the popularity of our Team of the Week votes, we are experimenting the rest of the season with letting readers decide our BlueStreak-Ruden Report Male and Female Players of the Week, with the hope that this will become a permanent process starting in the fall.

Your finalists are: the Staples boys tennis, Danbury boys track, Darien boys lacrosse and Wilton baseball teams.
