Event ends 2008-2009 Blair sports season


The 2009 spring sports award night, sponsored by the Blair Athletic Boosters (BAB), was held last night in the Blair auditorium. Coaches and event coordinators presented awards to athletes in recognition of their athleticism, sportsmanship and academic performance.

The evening began outside the auditorium where a slideshow played on the wall across from the main office. Pizza and refreshments were available for attendees and their families at the adjacent concession stand. Athletic Director Dale Miller then began the event with opening remarks and acknowledged BAB President Patsy Hedrick, who welcomed the audience.

Along with Miller, Assistant Principal Edith Verdejo recognized and presented small tokens to scholar athletes, students who maintained a 4.0 GPA during the entire sports season. Miller felt the ceremony achieved its goal. "I think it went very well," Miller said. "Most of the athletes were recognized. The coaches and parents all responded well."

Coaches from the spring sports teams delivered short speeches recounting their team's accomplishments and recognized certain individuals for their contributions. Athletes received awards for Most Improved (MI), Coaches' Award (CA), Outstanding Senior (OS) and Most Valuable Player (MVP).
