Congratulations to all of our summer and winter athletes who were recognized this morning at our Athletic Awards Ceremony! After powerful words from Mr. Gilley about the character and virtue building aspects of athletics, Coach Kivisalu introduced Mr. Joel Dunham, our long time basketball coach. Coach Dunham awarded his dedicated players medals, letters, pins, and bars. An All Conference Award and Defensive MVP was given to Master Brandon Peterson. Master Tim Parsley was awarded the Offensive MVP and Master Kevin Dulion was recognized as the most improved player on the team. With a final and emotional tribute to his eldest son, Coach Dunham awarded Clark with the 110% trophy.
Mrs. AJ Traylor then took the stage to introduce the 2016-2017 Cross Country team. With an amazing 4649 cumulative miles run over the season, Coach Traylor beamed with pride at her team’s accomplishments and hard work. With three boys running sub 19 minute 5K’s and one of our girls running the fastest 5K in TCS history, she had many reasons to be proud. Medals, pins, bars and letters were awarded and conference medals were handed out. First place in the men’s division went to Master Isaac Hennessey, followed by Master Tucker Gregg in second place and Master Evan Hennessey in third. Miss McKinley Traylor won second place in the women’s conference. She was also given the award for fastest time, as was Master Gregg. Most improved time went to Miss Ashley Cook. The coveted and hard earned 110% award was given to “Team Alpha”, Isaac and Evan Hennessey, Tucker Gregg, and McKinley Traylor. Congratulations to all on a job well done!
