By Bryan Cooney, Treasure Coast Newspapers,
Last week, Jensen Beach softball standout Annalise Buncy was voted Athlete of the Week, receiving almost 60 percent of the vote garnering over 12,500 votes.
Buncy hit two home runs, a solo homer in the first inning and a two-run home run in the sixth inning, accounting for all of the offense for the Falcons in a 3-0 regional quarterfinal victory over Pompano Beach on May 10.
This week's poll will go live at noon on Monday and will close Thursday at noon and will be the final Athlete of the Week poll of the 2022-23 high school sports season.
TCPalm wants to thank everyone for the support of the boys and girls on all of the area high schools all year long and stay tuned in the next few weeks for spring sports all-area teams as well as year-end reviews recapping the best moments of the year.
