Winner: Best Local Athlete Picture

The main photo on the story may be great, but it’s not the winner. Click on the photos to see the winner.

Congratulations to Michele Ippoliti. She is the winner of this week’s Patch Picture of the Week contest with her picture of Michael Ippoliti, on the football field. Michael is entering his fourth year with the Conestoga Generals in Berwyn and passionate about football.

Coming in a close second this week was Kelly Cortese’s picture of Courtney Cortese in the pool. Courtney is on the Great Valley High School swim team, as well as the Chester Valley Golf Club Swim Team.

As usual, there were some great pictures this week and I’m glad I didn’t have to pick the winner. It’s great to watch the best compete in the Olympics in London, but it’s also wonderful to see the amazing talent we have here at home, some of whom could make their way to future Olympics, like Havertown’s Brendan Hansen.

Thanks to everyone who submitted your great pictures. We had some amazing pictures submitted during and after the nomination period. I’ve included those picture submitted after the nomination period in this post so you can enjoy them.

Michele Ippoliti will be receiving a Patch prize pack in the mail.

Don’t forget to enter this week’s Picture of the Week contest. We’re asking people to upload pictures that mean summer to you. Scroll down to see that story and other Picture of the week entries and winners.
