[UPDATED] East Haven Athelete Voted 'Star of the Day'

East Haven High School girls softball team's McKenzie Miessau was one of three student athletes nominated as The New Haven Register's 'Star of the Day' for Wednesday.

Update at 9 a.m. on Friday

Well, : It looks as though your mouse clicks and laptop taps did the trick — as the girls softball team's McKenzie Miessau earns the honor of being named The New Haven Register's 'Star of the Day' for Wednesday.

After beginning the morning in third place — with less than 20 percent of the total vote — voting for McKenzie took off throughout Thursday afternoon and early evening, leading to the softball standout the mantel of "Star of the Day."

McKenzie finished with just over 57 percent of the total vote, with the second place finisher at 37 percent and third place slightly more than 5 percent.

Congratulations to McKenzie. And a big thanks to East Haven Patch readers: Way to go team!

Original Story (Thursday at 11 a.m.)
