All-Sports Banquet Recap
By: Ed Weaver / May 28, 2008
The Wellsboro Hornets Sports Booster Club held their annual banquet last night in the Wellsboro High School Gym. The banquet recognizes not only senior athletes and their accomplishments, but accomplishments by all athletes throughout the entire school year. Throughout the course of the night, the Booster Club and Athletic Director Sherri Prough recognized teams, coaches, captains, coaches' award recipients, and outstanding player award recipients from every sport.
Once all the athletic teams were introduced, the athletic memorial awards were presented. Jake Coolidge and Cameron Jones received the Rev. Wade Stewart and John Wilcox Memorial Awards respectively for their contributions to the football team. Colton Acorn received the Outstanding Football Player Award and Chris Copp received the Coaches' Award from Head Coach Chris Morral. Other Memorial Award Recipients include Katelin Peropat (Ray Strykowski and Shelly Tayton awards), Will Mitchell (Larue Wilson award), Kristin Stam (Laura Grove Patterson award), and Zachary Cerrone (Roger Dibble award).
The biggest awards of the night were saved for last. The John Prevost Memorial Awards are presented to the Male and Female Athletes of the Year. This year, Corvin Oberholtzer and Carolyn Mitchell were selected as the winners. Corvin has participated in Cross Country, Wrestling, and Track for the last four years, while Carolyn has participated in Soccer, Basketball, Softball, and Track over the same time span. Congratulations are in order for these two athletes, along with the rest of the senior class, as they exhibited the strength, determination, and dedication to the respective sports throughout their high school careers.
