Janette Wadolowski received 38% of the votes in the CPTV UChoose Student-Athlete of the Week Poll to win this week’s honor. She is a junior guard on the Southington High School Girls Basketball team.

Wadolowski and the Blue Knights roared back from a 16-point halftime deficit against Hall-West Hartford, Friday. The junior guard’s 23 points were ultra-important in a 63-60 win. She had 32 points for No. 23 Southington as the Blue Knights upset No. 10 Ridgefield 70-60, Tuesday in a CIAC First Round match-up. 15 of those points were scored in the fourth quarter and helped SHS pull away.

CPTV’s Frankie Graziano visited Southington High to discuss with Janette the team’s current run in the state tournament. She also talks about her relationship with her former teammate–sister Natalie, who attends Boston College on a softball scholarship. The UChoose interview is available in this article’s video player.

Voting was introduced in the CPTV UChoose Student-Athlete of the Week poll in October of 2014. Since that time, over 80 winners have been crowned from 50 different towns. 300,000-plus votes have been cast in that time in support of our student-athletes recognized for their fine play on a weekly basis. Fans may participate in a given poll each Saturday at 6 p.m. until Monday night at 6 p.m.
