Nelson high school athletes recognized

L.V Rogers handed out its annual athletic awards late last month in three categories for both boys and girls

L.V Rogers handed out its annual athletic awards late last month in three categories for both boys and girls: Scholar Athlete of the Year, Best All Around Athlete and Most Outstanding Athlete.

The Scholar Athlete needs an average of 80 per cent all year plus an 18/24 or better ranking from one of their coaches. The male award winner was Jordan Mulvihill (left) who played LVR volleyball and was number one in the nation for skip rope. The female award winner was Jayden Roch (middle left) who played LVR volleyball and basketball.

The Best All Around Athlete must play two or more school sports and make significant contributions to their team (outside school sports are also factored in). The female winner was Devyn Parker who excelled in swimming, baseketball and rugby. Trace Cooke (not in picture) took the boys award for his contributions in soccer, rugby and being number one in Canada for freestyle skiing.

The Most Outstanding Athlete may only play one sport, but excels in that sport. The boys winner was Matthew Zukowski (right) who played LVR basketball. The girls winner was Paige Mansveld (not pictured) who played LVR field hockey, soccer and basketball.
