My apologies -- our computer format, for some unknown reason, has gone to Eastern time. There remains 15 minutes to vote in the poll. The results will go up later tonight. May, if I don't hear from you, I will add your vote for Rachelle.

Matt Koran. Just on paper he is deserving. Add the extracurriculars, and it's a lock.

Matt Koran, Hi Ron, Simply the best student athlete I have seen come through West and work with in my time here. Great character and work ethic! B. Rucka
