Athletes from all sports convened at Millville School’s gym earlier this week to celebrate a year in sports.
Students who competed in cross-country, volleyball, soccer, cheerleading, basketball, baseball and softball were honored.
Lola Houston, who received two trophies, one in basketball and one in baseball said ” I had fun. I like being recognized for sports.”
Sports Night is a new event to the school, one that grew from the school’s coaches expressing a desire to give their athletes more acknowledgement and attention than they were receiving at the daytime awards assembly.
During Sports Night athletes from the entire sports year gathered together. Each coach brought his/her team to the stage, acknowledged their skill and verve then provided each player with a sports pin. Each coach also handed out trophies to the top players and the most inspirational.
