Congratulations to Connor Casey and Emily Lage, recipients of the 2020 LMC Outstanding Male & Female Athlete awards! At the conclusion of each school year, seniors are chosen by the varsity head coaches to receive the award. Coaches were given a list of students who have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.25 and have participated in multiple sports. The voting criteria for coaches included evaluating the athletic performance and talent in a school sport, all-around character with the team, school and community, and total evaluation over four years with an emphasis on development and growth to the senior year.
