Spring athletes were honored Tuesday with the annual sports awards program in the cafeteria at RCHS.

The program began with athletic director Dave Green welcoming all in attendance and then Mr. Hedrick from the Booster Club presenting the athletic department a check for $14,000. The money from the Booster Club helps with expenses and alleviates some of the cost that would go to the athletes and their families.

Allison Wainwright was given the four year varsity player award. Katie Schroeder received most improved and co-most varsity wins. Nici Martin also received co-most varsity wins. Sarah Harpring was given the coach’s award.

Softball was next on the agenda. Nicole Hoeing was given the co-most valuable player award and she was selected as academic all-state. Catie Liggett received co-most valuable player. Brooke Niehoff had the highest batting average. Riley Lanham received the defensive award. Kylie Martindale received the leadership and most improved award.

Green also recognized head coach Bev Stull as she is retiring from coaching after 21 years.

The Lion baseball team was next. Brad Busald was recognized for highest batting average and most RBIs. Mitchell Wagoner was recognized for most innings pitched. Caleb Wiles had the lowest earned run average and Frank Sammons received the mental attitude award.

For the Lady Lion track team, Ellie Sammons received most valuable for field events. Kayla Fogg received most valuable runner. Taylor Yager received the mental attitude award. Monica Dougherty was named most improved and Aubrey Stomberg received the all-purpose athlete award.

The sectional champion Lion track team closed out the program. Senior members of the team Zach Turner and Evan Dyer presented Hadley with the sectional trophy.

Turner was named most valuable athlete. Dyer was the most valuable distance runner. Josh Hodge was the Rookie of the Year. Jeremy Hallgarth was the most valuable sprinter and state finalist Zach Keim was the most valuable in field events.
