The Vindicator is pleased to announce its Fall Sports Athletes of the Year.
From summer workouts in the heat, to championship moments in the snow, the 10 student-athletes honored here are celebrated for their outstanding achievement throughout the season.
Whether it’s on the field, in the gym or around the course, their success is the direct result of hard work and dedication.
They represented their schools and communities in the highest fashion and brought pride to the Mahoning Valley as a whole.
As selected by The Vindicator, this year’s class includes eight seniors, one junior and one freshman.
For some, the final chapter on their competitive sports careers has been written. For others, it lives on through winter or spring sports or until next season.
Then there are those whose commiment to their sport, as well as in the clasroom, has rewarded them with the most valuable award one could recieve in the form of a scholarship.
These 10 student-athletes shared their stories from playing in the backyard as kids, to playing under the lights and in the spotlight.
They’ve won. They’ve lost. They’ve cried tears of victory and tears of defeat.
Lifelong friendships were forged and unforgettable memories were made, all thanks to high school sports.
Whether sports is included in the next chapter or not, the rest of their stories are still unwritten.
Read all their stories in today’s Vindicator or in Vindy.com’s digital edition.
