SAN ANTONIO—Our Lady of the Lake University Saints athletics program had their end of the year awards banquet Wednesday night. The sports media program in the chapel auditorium put on the banquet for the athletes to come dressed in their best attire and have a night full of fun, awards, announcements and reminiscing about the hard work from the 2017-2018 season.
“I have gone to five of these banquets now and each one gets better and better but this one was especially special because I am finally a senior and graduated so I got to come back to my team and receive my framed jersey with them around,” said volleyball graduate Raven Swain.
The award ceremony consisted of dinner, awards, and speeches and then to end the night the seniors from every team received their jerseys from that season in a frame with a name plaque on them. This is a time for the athletes to be able to look back on the seasons and all the awards won throughout the athletic program here at OLLU.
“It is a fun time to see all the athletes dressed up and clean instead of the daily gear and hair tied up look that we see them in everyday when they come in before practice for training or anything,” said head athletic trainer Corey Beechner.
