Forty-five athletes honored at winter sports awards ceremony

by Johanna Gretschel, Online Managing Editor
Last night, the Blair Booster Club hosted the winter sports awards ceremony in the Blair auditorium. After a slide show commemorating the past season was displayed, baseball coach John MacDonald introduced the awards ceremony in place of Blair's athletic director, Dale Miller. Miller was in Pittsburg to attend a funeral.

MacDonald recognized the 78 scholar-athletes by having them stand up. The 31 athletes who earned straight A's for the second marking period received a special patch.
