Members of the teams received their letters and pins, as well as special awards for scholar-athletes, Most Valuable and Most Improved Athletes and the Coach’s Award winners.

Athletic Director Douglas Webster presented special awards to the Most Valuable Athletes, the athlete that the coach felt the team contributed the most to the team’s success, the Coach’s award which is given to the athlete who exhibits the best effort, attitude, dedication and team spirit and the Most Improved Athlete is given to the girl whose skills progress the most throughout the course of the season.
