The Breakout Athlete of the Week polls will be posted on the Varsity blog Sunday morning.

Before then, help us choose the nominees for this week’s polls.

Do you know a high school athlete who has had an outstanding week? Send that athlete’s name to us and tell us what that athlete did this week to make him or her stand out. Just e-mail the information to sports@timesnews.com today before 7 p.m. with “Breakout Athlete ” in the subject line.

All nominated athletes will be considered, but we do not guarantee that each will be chosen. If your athlete is not picked this week, make sure to nominate the athlete the next time he or she has a big week.

The spring Breakout polls will include Baseball, Softball, Female Track Athlete, Male Track Athlete and Spring Athlete (for tennis, volleyball, boys lacrosse and girls lacrosse).

The polls are posted Sunday morning, and the voting deadline is 11:59 p.m. Tuesday. Readers are limited to one vote per computer network or IP address, so spread the word using social media — Facebook, Twitter or whatever other site you use.

Good luck, and we’ll look forward to reading the nomination e-mails.
