Athletes of the Year Announced at Owen Sound Schools
Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire ".
We've talked a lot of lacrosse this week, and fairly so since it's a very big weekend in Owen Sound for both the Junior and Senior NorthStars and especially for Owen Sound Minor Lacrosse with their 3 day tournament opening today.
It's also a critical point in the lacrosse season for all 3 levels with the Junior B Playoffs a week away.
And while lacrosse is stretching towards a climax, the end of the Bluewater Athletic Association season is upon us.
The surest sign is the year-end athletic awards that are conducted throughout the Bluewater Board at various secondary schools.
In Owen Sound, both the " new " OSDSS and St Mary's High School conducted their awards ceremonies this week.
At Owen Sound District, the Wolves named Emily Moore and AJ Kosempel as their top athletes.
Meanwhile, Molly Boley received the OFSAA Athletics and Academics award.
Boley, a prominent sporting name in the annals of the old OSCVI, will graduate from OSDSS with a 98% average and a 4th place finish in the discus at the OFSAA Track & Field Championship.
The St Mary's Mustangs also staged their year-end Athletic Awards this week.
The Athletes of the Year for the Mustangs were Karly Thacker and Foxton Mezenberg.
Plus, the prestigious Mustang Award was presented to Jessica Smith & Liam McManaman.
Congratulations to all of the Bluewater Athletic players, coaches, managers and teams on another eventful school calendar of sports.
Now, we're off to a big weekend of lacrosse.
I'm Fred Wallace
